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.
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

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.
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.
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".
