I use headphones only when I am traveling.Otherwise,in my house I always use the speakers to give out songs and music.Even though,listening to music through head phones have a dramatic difference than through speakers,it will harm the ear drums in due course.So,I prefer headphones,only when needed.Cheers!

I prefer headphones ^0^ 1. well for music, I prefer rock or alternative. That's my favorite genre. It sounds good specially if you have a good quality headphones when listening to rock. Feels like your watching a live concert. But sometimes it depends on my mood. 2. Mostly in my room or in the restroom. ^0^ I love listening in the restroom while poo or pee. ^0^ It sounds great there specially when I am singing. hhahah 3. well like what I'd said, poo or pee when I'm in the restroom. If I am in my room, It is either I am writing in my blog. Or reading a book. Or playing some games in the net. 4. Rock, classical and alternative. Those 3 were my favorites. It's kinda different but the effect on me are the same. I love em!

I listen to mostly rap and hip hop, but will try other genres. I definitely prefer headphones in most cases - makes it personal so you don't disturb others during a commute or if it is late at night at home. Of course in the car I prefer speakers, or at a party as well. Rap and hip hop have certain jazz elements which I like, and listening to that in headphones makes me feel relaxed and in a good mood with a vibe.

I personally prefer headphones. I love music and the great thing about headphones is its right there inside my ears loud and clear for me to rock out to. Plus it seems more private especially when it's an emotional song. Plus, most the time i listen to music I'm around others so speakers does not cut it since they dont like my music tat much and sometimes i dont want them listening to it, it makes me feel like i have to impress them or smoething, so headphones r d best. and they have a loot better sound than when its put out by speakers. The times tat i prefer speakers tho is when I'm in my room and doing homework because it's just easier to do everything. and when i'm dancing or exercising cuz its easier to have to exercise without worrying about your ipod falling out or something. And well I listen to techno and fast when i'm running or dancing, cool sadder songs when i'm chilling out, hard rock songs when i'm in a kickass mood and hip hop songs when i'm bubbly and fun. I like all diff types of music but my fav is rock.

Hey, I like to listen to a lot of trance and hip hop throughout my day. I always listen through a speaker if I'm doing anything like driving or relaxing in my room or something. The only time I prefer to have earphones on is when I'm working out in a gym or something, it helps me concentrate more. When I sleep, I prefer to listen to RnB or soft and soothing music.

I would rather listen with speakers since headphones tend to bug me. I usually just listen to music while working on easy homework (like busy work). I like country, bluegrass, and classical.

I love music and I can listen to music anytime, anywhere. I love those with fast beats and rhythm. But when I'm depressed, I prefer slow ones, or love songs. Also,when, I'm in a public place, I prefer using my headphone but when I'm alone, I listen with speakers.

Hi Phillip.. Nice to meet you... In the car, I listen to music with the speaker, because I have to listen to the other in the street. On the computer, I listen to music with headphones. With headphones, I worked for more concentration. To learn a song, I use headphones. I choose a song according to my mood at that time. Happy listening...
