Speakers for me. I know you usually get better sound out of headphones, but for some reason I find the exclusion of ambient sounds to be uncomfortable.

Like Mac, I too prefer to listen to my music through the speakers especially for the bass, but there are times when (at night) I wanna listen to my music without disturbing anyone, so I can put on the headphones, lay back, relax and crank it up if I want to.

Mostly I listen with speakers during the day when I'm doing other things, but if I want to really listen closely, or I don't want to disturb others, then headphones definately make it a more 'intense' experience (have to watch out for the volume so you don't damage your hearing, though)

I voted for speakers, cuz technically for "digitized music" thats what i use...

A pair of 15" FOH Mid range spkeakers..

But for recording, i use headphones, a pair of seinhouser (sp) something or others.

I have to say that I'm a critical listener. I mean, I DO listen to much of my music on speakers, but I love being critical with the mix and panning schemes. To me, headphones are tools, but I get a ton of enjoyment out of listening that way.

Headphones for me... most of the time anyway. Interesting that speakers are winning out in this poll... I thought it would have been headphones for sure.

Speakers get the vote here, headphones can be a bit too immersive for everyday use. We nearly always got music playing somewhere in the house - beats switching on the TV!

That's an excellent way of phrasing what I was trying to say.

You've got that right!!! Sorry to hear it's the same in the UK as it is here.....TV, by and large, is a brain-dead wasteland (IMO). Just about all I ever watch on the 'tube anymore is sporting events and some of the music channels.

Gasp ... No TV ? But how do you know what to eat, do, wear, buy and say? :dunno:

Usually headphones BTW, hate 90% of TV too.
