How To Listen To Music Online – Amazon Music Unlimited Review

How To Listen To Music Online - Amazon Music Unlimited

In the ever-increasing technological society that we live in, the options for how to listen and where to listen to music keep growing more and more. We will be discussing How To Listen To Music Online specifically throughout this article.

You can stream music and sometimes even full albums from certain websites for free. YouTube is a perfect example of this, although they don’t allow the same type of freedom that a streaming app does. This Amazon Music Unlimited review will help you make an informed decision. 

How To Listen To Music Online Using Amazon Unlimited

 

Prime Music – Free For All Prime Members

Now first, to start off there are free online music streaming services through companies such as Amazon. If you already pay for a Prime membership, all you have to do is download the Prime Music app on your smartphone. If you prefer to listen on a desktop, all you have to do is log in to your Prime account and navigate to the music streaming section from the home page.

 

Amazon Music Unlimited App

The Music Unlimited app is now offered through Amazon and is much like Spotify but there are a few differences.

First and foremost, the selection on Music Unlimited isn’t as vast as the selection on Spotify. This can be looked at two different ways.

  1. It’s a positive thing because it weeds out the artists that no one has ever heard of2.
  2. It’s a small negative because maybe you like discovering new, underground artists3.
  3. It really all boils down to what you’re looking to get out of a music streaming app/service.

 

If you’re a casual listener who just wants to press play to have a little background noise at your Friday night party then it really doesn’t matter either way.

How To Listen To Music Online

If you’re a music fanatic, on the other hand, it’ll be worth considering looking into an app that offers a wide range of genres and artists/bands within those genres.


Streaming Quality vs. Mobility

I have heard complaints from people that say that the quality of music that is streamed doesn’t come close to matching the quality of, say, a record player for example. I tend to agree with these people.

That being said, if I don’t have to carry 15 physical albums around everywhere I go, I’m willing to sacrifice some sound quality here and there. Also, most if not all, smartphones have EQ settings that you can adjust to better enhance the sound quality of your music.


Downloadable Content – Streaming Music Offline

Both Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited give you the option to download your favorite songs for offline listening. This was a big selling point for me when I made the decision to switch from a free Spotify account to a Music Unlimited membership. What this means is that let’s say you want to listen to The Doors at work or in your car but you are running low on cell phone data.

No problem, all you have to do is download the album or song and whenever you want to enjoy it, open up the Unlimited app on your phone/computer and listen away. Granted, it will take up some storage space on your phone but it is a nice option to have if you want it, especially if you don’t enjoy carrying physical albums around on a long road trip, etc.

  1. Hi Dom, Love your reviews they provide all the information I need to make an informed decision. im wondering though before I read through your other reviews, do you have any recommendations for earphones that don’t fall out? I seem to have the same issue as you where I can never seem to get them to fit. I love wearing headphones but I hate moving around with them since they tend to be so large. Ive been looking for a nice pair of in-ears for some time but I’m worried about making a purchase since most of them fall out.

    Keep up the fantastic reviews and articles.

    1. Thanks Jon, 

      If you haven’t found a pair of earbuds that don’t stop falling out I would recommend just going with a pair of over-ear or on-ear headphones. That is, unless you want to use the type of earbuds that used to come with iPods. Remember the ones that don’t have the rubber pieces that go inside of your ear? Those ones don’t sound nearly as good but I never really had a problem with them falling out of my ears. Here are some other reviews for quality over-ear headphones that you would enjoy. Thanks for your comment. 🙂 Let me know if you need further assistance. 

  2. Dude awesome, I am absolutely a casual listener who just enjoys a little background music on Friday nights haha.

    That’s downloadable content is pretty cool. I have a pretty crappy data plan, so if I could just download some songs and then flush them out with new ones every week, it would at least feel like I have a good data plan.

    1. Hey Jack, 

      That was one of my favorite features too, and was partially part of the reason it took me so long to start using streaming services. It definitely took some convincing to make me a convert. 

      But ya, if you have access to WiFi, your “crappy data plan” really shouldn’t be a problem. My data plan’s nothing fancy either but you can easily get by downloading over WiFi.

      Thanks,

      Dom
