Amazon Music Unlimited is one of our favorite music streaming services, having impressed us with its vast song selection and its Dolby Atmos Music feature, which expands a song's mix selection for heightened surround sound. You can access that feature with a mobile device compatible with the Amazon Music app and the Amazon Echo Studio smart speaker ($199.99), which also happens to be one of our favorite smart speakers. Whether you have the speaker or just a pair of headphones, music through Amazon Music Unlimited can be heard in an exceptionally immersive way.
While we haven't tried Audible Premium Plus, our tester found the standard service of Audible to be "a real treat." When you sign up, you'll get access to not only a collection of Audible original content, audiobooks and podcasts, but also sleep tracks and meditation programs to help you relax even more. You can listen to your curated collection on your laptop, tablet, Kindle, smartphone or any other device compatible with the Audible app. If you want to read or listen to something not included in the collection, your Audible Premium Plus membership earns you one credit a month to redeem any audiobook or Audible Original at no charge.
Whether you're out and about or staying cozy at home, this streaming deal can help make the rest of the year all the more fun. Check out these two amazing services and find out how good your free time can look (and sound)!
