When you want to listen in private, what do you prefer using?

 

Headphones

Earbuds

I'm not sure if there are any other options, so I restricted it to the two options above (as well as an 'Other' option).

 

Also, feel free to talk about the specific brands you use. I personally use a pair of Sony earbuds I bought a while back at Best Buy. Work fine for the $20 I paid for them.

While I prefer headphones (and voted for them) it is very rare for the two pairs that my house owns to be free for use, so I'll usually have to use those apple ones in the piture there.

Headphones for gaming,

Earbuds for listening to music.

WHERE DO I GO??

 

Ah well. I voted headphones because I probably game more often than I'm in a situation in which I need to keep my music to myself.

 

Err, as far as "other" goes, I think a bluetooth headset would fit there, since they might wrap around your ear but still go in. Just a thought.

By the way, headsets would qualify as headphones because it's pretty much the same thing except with a microphone attached.

I definitely prefer headphones to earbuds. Much more comfortable.

Ahhhh why would anyone listen to music through earbuds at home? I mean it makes sense if you're at school or outside or whatever, but if you're just listening to music around the house headphones usually give you way better sound quality.

Funny, I only use earbuds. But I don't use those earbuds, I can't get them in my ears.. I don't like headphones either..

I use this kind (just an example, I have smaller ones).

 

 

 

Btw, is it really true true that headphones are actually better? (As in quality, comfort, etc. I really like my earbuds) I got some from Christmas, and by all the posts everyone loves them.

Depends entirely on what they are, just like earbuds, there's different qualitys for everything. But generally headphones will have better quality. Comfort is personal preference, whether you like on-ear or over-ear or don't like headphones on you at all.

I use earbuds, though not for any real reason. I just never see headphones when I need something new. My current earbuds are a $15 pair that I paid $6 for... but one side fell apart.

Headphones I have a pair of Sennheiser's and Dre Beats I also have some Beats in ear headphones that I use while running and at school but the quality of them really doesn't compare. The Sennheisers have full base with a sub so the sound quality if incredible and even rivals my 7.1 system.

Headphones. Though i don't actually own any as i have more practical uses for earbuds and not enough $ to spend on quality earbuds and headphones.

Headphones in every circumstance except when I do anything exercise related. Don't want to make my headphones all sweaty.

Headphones all the way. Earbuds are just awful.

I usually go with earbuds as you get so much more sound out of them than you would an average pair of headphones. UNLESS of course, you had a really nice set of headphones that completely enveloped your ears and let all that sound treat your eardrums to eternal bliss. >:3

I will never buy a pair of earbuds again.

 

Thanks to Ruerin's suggestion I had my Mother buy these bad boys for my birthday last year:

If you are at all serious about listening to music, a pair of hi-fi headphones are a must!

Are you saying the Beats aren't good? I was considering getting some in-ear ones.

Sony or Sens for Studio Headphones. Sounds so great. The only drawback is I have to take breaks with them because I've ruined my hearing already due to music. :P

I don't know about the earbuds, but Beats headphones are [cabbage]. The audio has a really "murky" sound to it, it just doesn't seem precise at all. IMO the only reason they sell so well is the marketing. You can get way better headphones for the same price, and even a lot less.

Beats are a lot like Bose. You pay for the brand name, not the quality. At all costs, avoid anything Beats, Bose, or Skullcandy if you don't want to waste your money.

Dag. I'd love a pair of those, but I don't have $250 to spend on headphones. :(
