MP3 Insider 184: Insert lyrics here (podcast)

This week, Donald and Jasmine discuss a monumental smackdown between the Beats Solo by Dr. Dre and the Bose On-Ear Headphones. OK, maybe not quite monumental, but certainly interesting.

This week, Donald and Jasmine discuss a monumental smackdown between the Beats Solo by Dr. Dre and the Bose On-Ear Headphones. OK, maybe not quite monumental, but it is certainly interesting. Of course, if you think we're going to reveal the outcome without making you suffer through all three judges' rantings on the matter, you're sorely mistaken. Also on tap for this week: Cowon trots out a new video player, V-Moda makes an appearance with some new iPhone-friendly headphones, and Real takes a huge, industry-changing beating from the MPAA-holes. Plus, what exactly do the MP3 Insiders think about keeping all our media in the cloud? Tune in to find out.

To understand why music sales and illegal downloaded music has fallen, take me for instance...

I haven't purchased a CD in over 5 years now, although I did buy one digital album for my iPhone a while back. Every other song on the iPhone has been ripped from a CD that I purchased long ago. At the moment I have over 24 hours of music on the iPhone, which is more than I could listen to in a day, so I'm certainly not going to purchase more music for my iPhone.

As to why CD sales are down, take a good look at how that industry treats its customers, and the RIAA in particular. That is the real reason why I'm not going to be buying any more CD's!

And it's not online streaming services, like Pandora that play that much in our home, it's a mp3 radio station that I've paid to get a commercial free stream of Oldies (50's, 60's and early 70's) music, specifically, Sky.FM which has streams for practically any musical taste.

Sincerely,

Eric
