Pandora Upgrade

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — ioconnor @ 3:59 pm

Pandora has an upgraded version for $36 a year. It does not turn off due to inactivity. It plays at a higher bitrate. There are no advertisements. It also includes an application that is not dependent on a browser and displays the album cover. Finally there are no 40 hour per month limitations.

I don’t often listen to music. Maybe a few hours per month. And it’s been weeks since I last listened to any music. So I may not be objective. However the upgraded Pandora sound quality sounds much much better. The squeaking of the microphones, echoes off walls, clearing of throats, and huge shifts in dynamic range are inspiring. I don’t remember having heard these details before. Furthermore there may be a new algorithm used for selecting songs in the upgraded version. The last 10 or so songs I’ve heard have all been fantastic and some were unrated. Meaning I have never heard them before. However maybe Pandora’s always been this good and I just forgot.

If anybody is reading this blog I’d highly recommend you buy the upgraded version of Pandora.
