How To Get Paid To Listen To Music


How To Get Paid To Listen To Music

Making money while listening to music sounds too good to be true. But it is indeed true. You can earn money simply by sitting at home with your headphones on, listening to music and reviewing songs. Many sites have popped up recently which follow this model.

How does it benefit anyone to pay you to listen to music, you ask? It’s simple. Artists submit music to a site; then that music is played randomly to different users on the site. The artists are usually anonymous so that the listeners are not biased. A listener is paid after having listened to a considerable portion of a song or after they have written a review of the song. The amount varies from site to site, but it can prove to be a good source of extra cash. The following are two sites that will pay you for listening to music.


Slicethepie aims to help up and coming artists by allowing people to hear their music and review it. Once you sign up for an account, you can listen to a random selection of songs. You have to listen to each song for at least 90 seconds. Then you have to rate the song and write a review. You can earn anywhere from 15 to 20 cents per song. The service runs 24/7, so there’s potential to make a decent amount of money. Once you make $10, you can transfer the money to your PayPal account.Sign up with Slicethepie today.


MusicXray is similar to SlicethePie in that it helps up and coming artists to get their music reviewed while giving them exposure. During the sign-up process, you will customize your profile to your taste in music. Whenever an artist submits a song that matches your taste, you’ll be notified so that you can listen to the song. You’re paid 10 cents per song. Cashing out via PayPal is possible once you reach $20. MusicXray is different from SlicethePie in that you don’t need to write reviews. You only need to listen to at least 30 seconds of the song to get paid.

Honorable mention: Hit Predictor which offer various rewards for listening to music.
