Terrible service
10 August 2017
Reviewer: Malcolm Weale from Canada

25 of 39 people found this review helpful

I was with eMusic for years and never had issues. But over the last few years they have seriously gone down hill. The service is absolutely useless
I put my subscription on hold for 3 months and never once did they inform me it was about to begin. by the time I had realize I was 24.00 out of pocket. Sure they would add to downloads if I paid another month. But 150 downloads , was difficult to do 50 per month
Plus no help with the new download app.
Personally eMusic has become disappointment and anyone contemplating joining should reconsider

In summary, I would not recommend eMusic to a friend.

Stay Away since they Changed!
18 October 2014
Reviewer: Nodak67 from Seattle, WA

137 of 225 people found this review helpful

I was a member of Emusic for years and frankly loved them! Recently (Sept, 2014) they changed their policy and they no longer have ANY good tracks on their site. Gone is anything recent AND anything that is decent from the bygone eras too! Tried searching out anything decent of pop, rock, alternative, country, 80's - not a darn thing! And this is with my account sitting there with $28 in its balance! Tried to call them because I had tried to put a hold on my account before the $15 monthly had been taken out 2 days prior to this occurring online and it wouldn't let me do it of course. I called and it was "too late" OF COURSE so it just added to my balance that I couldn't spend. Plus if I put my acct. on hold, I'd lose my balance!!?? I just wanted to see what would happen for a month during their change - did I want to remain a member, spend the money I had in my account, see what happens...etc. Noooo! Not going to happen. I either spend it or lose it. So i'm desperately trying to find ANYTHING to spend that $... (Read the full review)

Stay Away from EMusic unless you want to throw your $ away
23 February 2014
Reviewer: Spicocchi from San Diego, CA

135 of 267 people found this review helpful

I have been a member for a couple of years now. In the last few months I find it takes longer to find something that I want to buy. Their search results provide thousands of results unless you know the exact artist name you are seeking. For the last two months I have lost over $16 worth of music I paid for. I have suggested they send out a notice to users that their funds are about to be "refreshed" which basically means if you have an outstanding balance they zero it out. I find this to be a complete rip off. I signed up for the annual program so I could get more music, but I am finding less and less music to my liking. DO NOT sign up for them no matter what, they are greedy and only want to get the money you leave on the table when you don't use it. I find iTunes might be more expensive, but not when I consider how much I have lost to them by not remembering what day of the month the "refresh".

In summary, I would not recommend eMusic to a friend.

no rollover so you LOSE money
26 August 2012
Reviewer: WV from Kansas City

188 of 320 people found this review helpful

I thought it was great until I moved and got incessantly busy and didn't get around to downloading my 17.00 worth of monthly songs. so that money does not rollover and is lost, or gained for them. I will NOT renew yearly subscription.

In summary, I would not recommend eMusic to a friend.

Believe the bad reviews.
07 July 2012
Reviewer: David from Washington, DC

158 of 312 people found this review helpful

Believe all the bad reviews you read here and stay away from eMusic. I origianlly signed up for the music, they didnt have the content I thought they would have. I did however enjoy the audiobooks. Then they changed their policy to allow audiobooks credits to roll over. I have spent nearly a thousand dollars with this company and they are losing me as a cusotmer over a credit rollover issue and more importantly over the shady way they change thier policies and don't notify their cusotmers. The customer service is abhorent.

In summary, I would not recommend eMusic to a friend.

eMusic
26 May 2012
Reviewer: Jorge O. from New York

191 of 355 people found this review helpful

Old or not as recent tracks or artists, so it took me 4 months at $15.95 each to find 8 worthy 49-99 cent tracks. In short, it cost me over $63 to compile what amounted to a $9 album due to losing the $15.95 "credit" "priviledge" if not used. On what??. WOULD NOT RECOMMENED!

In summary, I would not recommend eMusic to a friend.

False Advertising
01 May 2012
Reviewer: Cman from Houston TX

200 of 326 people found this review helpful

I had an offer for 35 music and 1 audiobook download, turns out I was actually given a dollar amount for music and only 1 credit for the audiobook, I ran out of music credits with 24 songs, I called to report this, they gave me an additional $5 credit was able to add 7 songs for a total of 31 songs, Several songs I wanted was "album only"

The audiobook I wanted was two credits, I was frustrated and cancelled the offer.
On second thought what can one expect for "Free"?

I would ONLY recommend the "free trial" with low expectations

In summary, I would recommend eMusic to a friend.

The MP3 player is ok.
03 October 2011
Reviewer: Jessica Hardy from Naples, FL, USA

227 of 406 people found this review helpful

Pros - Plays good music, touch screen, comes with stylus, speakers, usb cord isn't long, you can delete songs and create playlists on the electronic, the mic is clear, camera has an OK quality.

Cons - the earphones are too big, too many options : i've had this mp3 player for a few months and i still don't know what half the buttons are.

I think the MP3 should be worth about $30-40.

In summary, I would not recommend eMusic to a friend.

eMusic
03 September 2011
Reviewer: John from Toronto, Canada

194 of 381 people found this review helpful

I've been a subscriber since 2006, which means I pay less per tune than a new subscriber. I've found the site to be an excellent source of indie music, and more recently the more poorly ranked pop music. This is NOT a site for those seeking Billboard, or other such current pop hits. There is however a very wide range of classical, jazz, indie, alt, international, etc etc music, and I have benefited well from my subscription. However, there a LOTS of problems with eMusic. The service sucks. The Downloader, which is almost essential to access the music, is horribly unreliable. I have a Mac, and for some reason they are incapable of making half-baked software, and over the years I've frequently had to complain about download issues. In general, with time, the problems have all been resolved. After 5 yrs I find myself struggling to find music that interests me, but this is not because the music isn't there, but because it nonetheless requires a lot of time and effort to find music that interests me, (but this is not an eMusic problem).

Monthly Download Credits Don't Rollover
25 August 2011
Reviewer: No Rollover from Atlanta, Georgia

192 of 363 people found this review helpful

I cancelled my eMusic subscription after 11 months because they don't rollover my unused funds to the next month. I was burned twice with this because I didn't have time during the month to shop for and purchase music.

The first time it happened, I went the whole month without downloading any music because I was very busy, but was looking forward to logging in the next month expecting to see two months worth of available download credits, but when I logged in there was only the current month's available download credits. The previous months money hadn't been added. I emailed customer service & they confirmed that my money was forfeit due to the non-rollover policy. They said they'd credit my funds this one time only, which they promptly did. A few months later I had another busy month & was unable to use up all of my credits, so again, I lost MY money. The second time paying a "penalty" for not using up all my credits was enough for me to cancel. This non-rollover policy seems to me to be a very underhanded way to scoop up extra revenue.

It goes without saying that certain imitations must exist as... (Read the full review)
