How Many MP3s Can 128 GB Hold?

How much music can you store on 128GB? Simple question, but it requires us doing a bit of math.

Before we get into in, you should be aware that my answer is all based on estimates and The amount of songs that a 128GB memory card, flash drive or iPad can hold is really dependent on many different factors.

For simplicity sake, let use just assume you have 128GB of space available.

  • To start things off, we are going to use the average size of an MP3, which is around 4-5 MB.
  • For easier calculations, around 128000 MB makes 128GB
  • 128 GB = 128,000 MB
  • 128,000 MB divided by 4 MB = 32,000 mp3 songs 
  • 128,000 MB divided by 5 MB = 25,600 mp3 songs.

As you can see, 128GB should easily hold anywhere from 25,000 – 33,000 songs. That is a significant amount, also remember that this is all estimated.

You could possibly fit a lot more or less, it really depends on so many factors such as MP3 size, bitrate and much more.

Because of the varying sizes, I expanded the size range, just so you can get an idea of the music storage possibility based on MP3 size.
