When Beats by Dre headphones first came available in 2008, it was hard not to notice them. They were sleek, boldly designed with an iconic look and advertised so well that you couldn't miss them. Beats brought excitement back to the premium headphone space.
But when the company behind the headphones announced it would be creating its own music streaming service, we had some doubts. There are already so many options out there and they're all pretty similar. After using it, we're singing a different tune. Beats Music, like Beats By Dre, may not be all that different than it's competition, but it sure feels like it is.
Like the majority of it's competition, Beats Music offers a huge library of streaming music to subscribers for $10 a month (or $15 a month for a family plan if you're an AT&T customer). Beats Music incorporates parts of MOG, a music provider Beats purchased to use as a foundation for it's own service. There's 20 million songs in the Beats Music library – an absurd amount of music, but comparable to Rdio, Spotify, and Rhapsody, all of which boast similar numbers.
