That makes Qobuz £25 / $25 per month at its most affordable, and £300 / $250 per year at its most expensive. There’s no free tier, soon there won’t be an MP3-tier, and the hi-res tier is significantly more expensive than that offered by Tidaland Amazon Music HD.
Qobuz’s comparatively high price is partly justified by its exhaustive library of hi-res music. Recent figures put the total number of hi-res tracks at over 2m, while Tidal claims ‘only’ over 1m. Numbers rarely tell the whole story, but we regularly find hi-res albums on Qobuz that are available in only CD-quality on Tidal.
