When it comes to downloading music we always consider the filesize of an MP3 and the audio quality. There are many sites thats let us download mp3 with smaller size but not ever knowing of the audio quality and whether it’s legally uploaded or it’s legal to download which sometime we really don’t care as long as it’s what we are looking for. Those sites are MP3Juices.cc, emp3z.com, Piratebay and more.
What is Mp3 by the way?
MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio layer-3) a format for compressing audio into a very small file while maintaining its audio quality. It proved almost CD quality of audio. It’s popular with users since it can compress 1/10 of the original size and can save more to your disk space. It works by reducing the accuracy of some parts and omit those sounds that are beyond audible.
How to Check the quality of an MP3 File
Usually people tend to base their assumption on bitrate, encoder type and probably file size to some. Common mistakes with other people is they tend to convert 96 kbps or 128 kbps to 320 kbps thinking it will improve the audio quality. Once you convert a bad copy audio and convert it to a higher one it will be still be bad. Some use music editors like Audition to really check the frequence and compare the CD quality to mp3 with bitrates of 96 kbps, 128 kbps, 320 kbps and higher to distinguish the audio quality.

The Popular ones are Spotify, Tidal, SoundCloud, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Last.FM, Pandora music and many more. Premium subscriptions are usually needed to have the feature of lossless audio and able to download the choice of your song. If you’re a new customer you can always have free subscription to be able to do that and the most longer free trial offer i found is Apple Music which is 3 months or 90 days.
