In the modern world, streaming service has become a new trend of many audiophiles to enjoy songs. As the biggest streaming music provider, Spotify offers the most convenient way to listen to music online. You can listen to Spotify songs on all kinds of devices including Windows, Mac, Android, IOS, Linux as long as you install the Spotify app or use the web player. It includes two tiers of service, free and premium. The free account has standard quality 160Kbps songs with Ads while the premium membership has up to 320Kbps high quality tracks without Ads.
However, no matter if you use the free or premium account, you can't download the DRM Ogg Vorbis songs to MP3, so some times you may still encounter some inconvenience if you want to burn Spotify music to a CD, share the playlist, listen to Spotify in the Car or in an airplane and so on. If you also encounter the similar issue, then you are definitely in the right place. Here we have got you covered with the top 5 best Spotify to MP3 converters with different strong points.
