Despite the discomfort of my factory-shipped iPod earbuds and poor sound quality of some from Duracell, I prefer earbuds because of their portability, and I like to appear inconspicuous while listening. I don't know the quality of Skullcandy products, but I might be willing to deal with it so I can listen in comfort.

Headphones! You can turn the volume up as much as you want, and you won't have to worry about disturbing others. Plus you can hear the music better this way, because you won't hear any background noises eg. cars, cicadas.

Earphones for outside purposes.

No speakers.

headphones for me. i used to like earphones but then my ears hurt after wearing it for too long so i started hating it after that.. O___o i prefer headphones cuz it's more comfortable and the sound quality is better IMO.

i use speakers once in a while if i'm home alone or if i'm tired of using my headphones. but i always use my headphones if i'm watching anime...need some privacy i guess. xD

It depends on where I am. If I am in more of a public place then obviously with ear phones but when I am in my won crib, speaker ftw! I prefer speaker overall, its gives the whole complete mood...

Earphones mostly. I have a Creative EP-650 and it's just great.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

Actually this reminds me, I need a pair of earbuds/earphones for going out and about. My last pair broke in like, 4 months which is totally unacceptable for a $50 price tag.. Anyone have a recommendation for good sound quality that doesn't fray/break in almost no time flat?

I don't really have a preference, I just use what is practical. Earphones when I'm out, headphones when I'm at home. Speakers only if there is no one around at home to berate me for not doing something more productive and worthwhile.

speakers for sure are preferable in terms of producing the best sound
...but headphones will do if there are other people around

Speakers by far, I would only use either of the other two when I'm out.

Well I generally listen to them through ear phones, however, if I am by myself at the time I listen to them through speakers.

Earphones.They may not have high quality sound, but I find that they cancel out outside noises the best.

Since January, my speakers have blown out a few times to a point where I now use headphones more. To bad I can't change my vote.

Always at my PC when I listen, so headphones. I have a $20 pair of Sennheisers that do the job.

I don't like expensive headphones, and SCREW Skullcandy with their clamp-on-to-your-skull-phones. I'm not snowboarding right now, so I don't need them, but everyone insists on using them at their computers or whatever.

I don't like headphones, they are too bulky. I never use them.

At home I always use my speakers and when i'm outside, I use my earphones.

For cans: Shure SRH-240's. With the Fiio-E5 headphone amp. Its technically my brothers, but I get to borrow it.

Earphones: Just some purple ones I got at Wal Mart for 10 bucks. I didn't buy them for quality.

Speakers: My brother's homemade boombox XD Yes, homemade.

Usually I use the cans though.

Speakers for any elector music I play etc.
Headset if something in the background is too loud (I've got fairly cheap headset, but I had something like a gaming headset I'd prefer them).

Earphones are really light and easy to carry around so I like em too.

probably speakers. you can literally feel the sound coming at you if you have it loud enough and it wont blow the fuck out of your eardrum (right away anyway). it just feels very different being surrounded by the sound than having it directly in your ear.

I have speakers, so I do not find myself obligated, using headphones. I only use earphones/headphones when I go out; because it is strange, going outside with the speaker, plugged into your mp3/iPod/etc.

I do not recall, Jesus ever saying "build churches, temples, and kill those who doesn't follow christianity..." nor he said "christianity is religion".

I don't really like headphones, it bothers me not knowing if someone is walking behind me or not. The only time I use them is for gaming, while at home.

And I'm guessing earphones are like earbuds? Those never fit right, I prefer headphones. xD
