Spotify, as one of the most well known streaming music services in the world, now has over 190 million monthly active users combined with 87 million paying subscribers and 104 million free users. For subscribers, Spotify provides them with ad-free songs at 320 kbit/s for extreme quality. But for free users, Spotify limits their experience with ad-supported and stream-only music at 160 kbit/s.

To protect the copyright of the music, Spotify uses DRM encryption to encode the songs as OGG Vorbis format. Therefore, even if you are premium user, you can't play Spotify music on common MP3 players. To break the limit, you'll need a Spotify music ripper to rip music from Spotify songs/playlists as DRM-free MP3. Here's the complete guide to rip Spotify to MP3 at 320kbps so that you can listen to Spotify songs offline on any device and MP3 player later on.
