Lower prices boost digital audio downloads


— 1:42 PM on July 2, 2003

Listen.com is claiming a huge increase in song purchases since it dropped the price of burnable tracks from $0.99 to $0.79. It appears that the service's general traffic for streaming media is up, too.

Are Listen.com's lower prices really behind an increase in downloads? Maybe, but I can't see a $0.20 discount making that big of a difference. I'd wager that the publicity surrounding Apple's iTunes Music Store launch directed many Windows users to Listen.com's Rhapsody service.
