Maybe you’ve heard, Earbits was acquired earlier this year and we’ve been hard at work building an all new mobile experience.
Here are just a few of the awesome features of our new mobile app.
This latest release includes an interface overhaul with an increased focus on the ability to build a catalog of favorite artists and explore them on-demand.
We try to do what is right for the artist at Earbits. Sometimes, that means working out an awesome deal for you, with an incredible company like MODIFY Watches!
MODIFY specializes in custom, high-quality watches, and they have an offer for you. They will create great custom watches for all Earbits artists, with NO cost or risk involved! The best part? They normally give their partners 20% of the custom watch, but all Earbits artists will get 30% of the revenue for their watches sold!
We have rolled out another great feature for our artists, and I’m excited to tell you about it.
You can now customize a slide-out ad that will show up when your music plays on Earbits, providing listeners with a way to click through to any promotion you have going. Whether you are looking for votes in a contest, selling a new album, giving away a free download, or any other number of uses, these ads are a great way to engage with your fans.
You can access the slide-out promo ad by logging in to your artist dashboard (https://dashboard.earbits.com/dashboard/login), and setting it up is simple:
It’s easy to hear that there is a film about Hendrix with no original music from the man himself and scoff…there’s no way that kind of story could be interesting, purposeful, or even remotely compelling. But in an oddball, aloof, alluring way (maybe much like Jimi himself), “Jimi: All Is By My Side” is one of the most compelling music related biopics I’ve ever seen. But it’s not without damning flaws that are impossible to dismiss.

As far as I’m concerned, the concept album represents a pinnacle of human creativity. It’s one thing to write an album’s worth of captivating music, but it’s another thing entirely to then tie each song together with a common story or lyrical theme.
Music therapy is still in the early days in terms of becoming an officially recognized science, but it’s definitely gaining ground. Read on for a brief look at what music therapy is, as well as some of the surprising ways it’s helping people live and feel better.
Dear friends, listeners, artists and labels,
It has been one hell of a week, and we could not be more excited to bring you some truly unbelievable news.
On Friday, we announced that we had run out of funding and would be shutting down the Earbits service. We received countless emails from artists and listeners showing their support for the Earbits vision, and they spoke up on Twitter and across the web. Unfortunately, we had no choice but to go offline two days ago.
To our Earbits Listeners, Artists, and Labels,
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the shutting down of the Earbits service on June 16th.
Shutting down a company after 4.5 years is going to be painful for anybody but is particularly painful for us here at Earbits. Most startups validate over the course of a few years that their concept is inherently flawed, or that the economics of it would not work out at scale. For Earbits, nothing could be further from the truth. We proved to ourselves and a substantial number of artists and listeners that our concept does work, that our vision is what the industry and larger streaming providers need to be doing in order to create more value, but that we simply needed a lot more capital to pursue such an aggressive mission properly. In trying to build a digital media, two sided marketplace in an already tough industry, it appears we bit off more than we could chew.
