Check out below on how to listen to music online with these 5 apps for best experience:
- Check out the music stations on iTunes:
If you are a fan of iTunes, then don’t forget to check out the various music stations featured on iTunes organized by different albums, genres and individual songs. You can then simply listen to any music station or pre-made lists available. If you have not used iTunes before, simply go to www.apple.com/itunes/ and download the app on your computer or phone and enjoy listening to your favorite songs!
Spotify is known as one of the best music services available on the web with a collection of more than twenty million tracks to listen to along with a hub of third party apps such as the BBC Playlister service to extend your listening. Most people often use Spotify to listen to their favorite songs but there is also a radio option available that plays songs related to your choice of artists making it the smartest radio available on the web!
Although Pandora may be only available to the people of US, New Zealand and Australia, it is without a doubt the granddaddy of online music streaming. Rather than providing the option of playing tracks on demands, you can pick a song and let it create a whole radio station of your taste in music. Moreover, Pandora also tends to keep your recommendations sensible and works pretty well allowing you to create personalized radio station of over hundred tracks.
- Use iHeart Radio to listen to hundreds of tracks across the US
Go to www.iHeart.com and search for your favorite music stations and enjoy for free! You can also create your very own customized station with your favorite tracks and manage other stations by giving thumbs up for each song.
Pro Tip: Remember when you are listening to your favorite music by plugging your headphones into your computer you might not be getting the best audio quality possible. Therefore, make use of a DAC (Digital Analog Convertor) and amplifier to fix the problem and enjoy your favorite songs in full swing and no care of the world!
Despite what the web has to offer, you can always run back to your old fashioned record store and get a CD of your favorite physical recordings. Music lovers always tend to find more options to listen to the music the way they wants and thanks to the online sources, we now have plenty of options to listen to our favorite tracks.
