To those who aren't experienced online shoppers, buying Amazon MP3 music downloads might not seem like it is worth it - and of course, it doesn't have the luxury of just having the buy button. Also the whole experience of buying music on iTunes is simple by incorporating songs from the most obscure indie bands to mainstream pop. metro lagu iTunes provides a little better quality music format (DRM-free 256kb/s AAC), they also have different values for their songs, most songs costing you $1.29. Not so great songs are typically $0.99 and $.79 (very few), but purchasing an album will end up saving you more money, you could normally buy a 12 track record for $9.99. On special occasions certain bands/singers and genres will go on sale such as holidays or celebrations. If you decide to pre-order an album you can sometimes get it at a discounted price. Depending if you are a PC or Mac user the AAC format in which the music is available, might or might not sound great. The 256Kb/s AAC format is supposed to sound nice to an mp3, but to notice a difference one would need really high quality stereo's or headphones. Listening to music in noisy environments, on not so great ear buds (such as the ones that come free with your iPod) will cover up the sound difference. There is the fact that no all devices can play the AAC format, mainly the older mp3 players. It's common sense not to buy music from the iTunes Store without owning an iPod or iPhone. An upside in Amazon mp3 is that the Amazon down loader application will automatically import the Amazon MP3 songs you buy into iTunes if you want to. Which means that you can have the songs on your iPod with a lot less work, because your songs will be imported automatically. In my opinion buying songs from iTunes is a much better option than from buying from Amazon mp3. They have it more nicely set up and making purchases is a lot easier.
