whic is correct and why?

Hi I read this quote "the quiter you become, the more you are able to hear" For me the second sentence sounds incorrect. Shouldn´t it be: the more able you are to hear" Well I just hope somebody can help me with this doubt because is killing me. Thanks in advance!

Both constructions are possible, with no difference.
