When it comes to download high quality 320kbps songs as local files, most people would generally think of digital downloads. But for those who want to download a great many songs, it’s a large sum of money to be paid out. Is there any more cost-effective way to get high quality songs? Have you ever thought of streaming music services, which offer millions of songs with excellent audio quality with around $10 per month? How about Spotify Premium?
Compared to Spotify Free, one of the distinct features for Spotify Premium subscribers is that they are able to stream high-quality Spotify songs for offline listening. But there are limits though. Like other music streaming services, all the songs that Spotify provides are lock in DRM, for which we are unable to download them to our local computer.
In this article, we are going to introduce a simple yet efficient way to bypass the DRM of Spotify and show you how to download 320kbps MP3 songs from Spotify step by step.
Note: The method we adopt below requires you to sign up for at least one-month Spotify premium subscription. After all the songs you need are downloaded to your computer, you can cancel the service or keep it as you like.
