|As tipped earlier, MOG Music Service has officially been sold Beats, maker of high-end headphones. MOG said in an announcement today that they'll be continuing the streaming music site in the same way that they always have, and users should see no change in the way the site, music or music service works. The free service stays free, MOG Basic is still $4.99 per month, and MOG Primo is $9.99 per month. There could be potential changes, though, in the future. The MOG web site FAQ says something different though, on the FAQ page about the sale: "Time will tell exactly how we integrate our products, services and brands. We will continue to innovate and improve upon our existing service to bring users the ultimate listening experience."
As for their choice of going with Beats, MOG said it was simply a matter of the same ideals: "When approached by Beats, we realized it's a company as obsessed with sound quality as we are. Both MOG and Beats share a common goal of creating a more premium sound experience and emotional connection with music in the digital era. To date, Beats has done just that through headphones, speakers, mobile phones, personal computers and automobile sound systems. "
