A review of Music Skins in the website, AppRecap states thus: “I reviewed a unit for 5th gen iPod Nano, and was very impressed by the quality. This isn’t just tape that covers up your device, it’s really high quality stuff. What’s good is that it’s somewhat thick material, so it does do a good job as far as protecting the device from scratches. Obviously, installation isn’t hard, you essentially just stick the skin in the proper position. Accuracy is crucial for some models though, like the ones with cameras. But once you stick it on right, it just looks fantastic: the unit I tested was the Beatles, and as an avid Beatles fan, I felt some new love for my newly-masked iPod. As you can see, they are well designed, with intriguing artwork (in my case, there was the Beatles logo on the front, and the each player’s face on the back. Overall, MusicSkins is great. It’s high-quality, easy to install, and it looks awesome.”
MusicSkins has become quite reputable both on and off the internet for its quality products and services over the years. Even if they are not BBB (Better Business Bureau) accredited, the company is still renowned and has gotten a lot of media exposure. It has a separate webpage called PRESS, where all the news items published in very large number of magazines about MusicSkins are displayed.
Being an online business, MusicSkins relies greatly on bringing traffic to its website to boost their sales. Upon checking its traffic statistics in Alexa, results show that in the past month, it is ranked as #735,107 globally, and #244,282 in the United States, where most of its traffic originates. Google PageRank gave website of MusicSkins a 4 out of 10 (with 10 being the highest). Their low ranking probably can be attributed to the fact that the company is focused more on the United States as their target market, which means that they may not be as visible or renowned in other countries and regions.

Website of MusicSkins does not provide information on prices for their products. The prices given here are collected from a reviewing website, AppRecap mentioned earlier. “MusicSkins, LLC–Prices: Usually $15 for iPhone, $20 for iPad. My only problem with it was the price: 20 bucks for iPad seems fair, but $15 for iPhone seems a bit steep. Despite this, I am convinced MusicSkins is a great product, and I definitely recommend it.” After going through a number of customer reviews, it is found that customers are quite happy with the total package including price.
