If you are looking to revamp your phone’s ringtone and you are tired of searching the internet and having to deal with endless paid ads, limited options and paying for tones then you are reading the right article. In this post, we would be looking at websites where you can legally download/customize a wide range of ringtones.
Will my phone support these ringtones?
That is a very valid question. If you are using an android phone, then it would be much easier for you to download ringtones directly since they support mp3 files, it’s even possible to create your ringtone with android.
With iPhones on the other hand, it’s a bit trickier. Most of the files in this article are mp3 files, so in other to use them on your iPhone, you would have to do a couple of things since iPhone requires the files to be in AAC format and have an m4r file extension.
Is it safe?
There are a lot of shady websites on the internet that lures you in with the promise of free ringtone downloads. Most of these websites end up bombarding you with various adverts or try to get you to download files other than what you have requested. When downloading files be sure to look at the extensions closely to be certain you are not downloading something else, extensions such as exe, msi, dmg, apk are serious red flags.
Note that, most of these websites have a mix of ringtones that can be downloaded legally and illegally. Ringtones from music made in more recent decades are most likely copyrighted and illegal to download.
It has a large collection of ringtones which amounts to over half a million. Finding what you are looking for on this website has been made easy with ringtones being arranged in categories such as alternative, Rap/RnB/HipHop, classical, jazz, etc.
Every tone has a rating and view count, so you can easily see which is popular among. One small drawback is the fact that you can’t play the ringtone from the main category page, you have to keep going in and out of each ringtone page to play them.
You can download ringtones in either mp3 or m4r format on this site. There are instructions on how to import to iTunes to use on your iPhone on the website. The easiest and quickest way to save this ringtone is to choose the save to pc option for mp3 and the save for iPhone option for m4r.
Just as the name implies, this website provides notification tones, tones similar to the ones that are usually installed on the phones by the manufacturers. There are no songs on this website, so if you are looking for music tones this is the wrong place for you, here you get message tones, sound effects, and the likes.
Navigating is made easy on the site with the help of the tags/categories, which you can use to find specific tones. You can quickly listen to the tone to decide if that’s what you want by simply clicking the preview button.
There are three download options available to use, the one for android (mp3), for iPhone (m4r) and OGG. Ringtones for calls are very limited on this site since most of the tones are meant for notifications.

Downloading on Audiko is quite easy, once you find a ringtone you are considering, you can listen to the tone and its variations and then proceed to download by clicking the download button.
