What do you prefer and why?

Headphones - Higher quality sound and better build quality than earphones, but your music is still private unlike speakers.

Depends on the situation, when I'm alone at home I listen to music on the computer, with the computer's speakers, but in situations where you want the music to be more private and that it's earphones... well, at least if I had earphones. Sadly I don't have any earphones or headphones. I'd love to have some one day.

Headphones. The problem with speakers is that I listen to a lot of music with explicit content and my family don't like that type of stuff.

I enjoy speakers much more than headphones for home use. If I'm eating, for example, something on my head keeps bothering me.

Speakers, they just sound better. I use earbuds when I'm out of the house, or I'm watching a YouTube video or something.

At home: speakers, or sometimes headphones if I'm in the mood to zone everything out, am listening to something with explicit lyrics, or both. Away from home: earbuds, just easier to carry around.

Speakers any day. I have a nice set of earbuds, but nothing beats the sound of high quality home audio. I love being able to turn it up and see things on the wall shake but not have any distortion, and I love being able to physically feel the music. Nothing beats a bass drum or low end note that is loud enough that you feel a "punch" hit your chest. And crystal clear high end is just as good. That is why I love my Klipsch system, its got both ear-piercing high end and wall-rattling low end with zero distortion. <3

Headphones. I just bought new ones and the sound is better tan the one of my speakers.

Speakers. It sounds so much nicer when you can hear it full blast and change the volume of the bass etc. Earphones second because I don't own headphones and for when I'm out the house it's private.

Even when I'm alone (which is a lot) I usually use earphones. I've been using them for so long it's pretty much a habit and I don't ever think to take them out. :lol:

Earphones, headphones are too bulky and ruin my hair, and I like having the music injected into my brain so no speakers
