How often do you listen to music with headphones or earbuds?

For me, I almost never listen to my music without them, even when I'm home alone. It just feels weird to me. Also, I don't want people knowing what I'm listening to all the time.

I use them almost all the time for similar reasons. I don't like people knowing what I'm listening too even though I listen to mostly pop. Sometimes I'll not use them if I'm home alone but even then I usually use them

Nearly all the time, mostly cause the audio on my MP3 player and laptop sucks. I also like immersing myself in my music(helps me draw better compared to stereos) and I don't want people knowing what I'm listening cause I'm self conscious like that :P

I rarely ever wear headphones or earbuds. I find them to be quite a nuissance after awhile, and I rarely have time to use them at school. I can only use them at home, and then there's really no point in using them. I used to keep a pair of earbuds in my backpack for school, but they broke. I do have a pair of Bose headphones, but I'm not bringing them, and I don't have much of a use for them at home. Despite this, I highly reccomend Bose headphones to anyone who wants quality sound from a pair of headphones without paying a lot of money. I actually have a gaming headset as well. It's one of the cheaper models from Turtle Beach, although I've only used them a few times in my time of having them. They're good as well. I just don't have an interest in using them.

Whenever I possibly can. I love listening to music or having a Youtube video playing in the background. Pretty sure the only time I don't have them in is when I'm at school or sleeping.

All the time pretty much. My music taste DEFINITELY does not suit everyone, and if I'm watching any sort of entertainment, I don't need anyone eavesdropping in and commenting on what I'm watching.

It's also helpful if potentially NFSW topics come up in the media, and you're around people, lol.

I have a really nice gaming headset, with gr8 sound, but I look kinda stupid with it on and they're not easy to transport, so I just stick to some really quality earbuds, and then use the cheap Apple ones from my mom and sister's phones as spares. I am a music enthusiast, as well as a musician who often records a lot of what I play (when I have my instrument that is) so earbuds are really helpful for detecting pitches; esp. sound cancelling ones!

I use headphones and headsets all the time, partly because I like to keep my music to myself, and partially because I think of it as common courtesy not to play music without headphones in public. I can't be the only person who gets irritated by the kids playing the same pop songs over and over again on a portable speaker on a bus, right?

It's almost all the time for me. But in those rare moments I'm completely home alone, I like to play really loud music on my radio speakers. XD

Only when I have to. I have a nice set of earbuds but I would much rather listen to music through a decent sound system so I can actually feel the music lol. It isn't loud unless there's noise complaints, which I have had a couple of from neighbors (living room sound system is insane). Plus I hate anything in my ears/on my head anyway.

I have a hard time hearing things so I usually wear my earbuds, but my current computer has pretty good speakers so sometimes I listen without.

All. The. Time.

My earbuds half-broke on one side though, so now the sound on the left side is really faint :T

What I really need is headphones. They're just too expensive .-.

Every day, every time I listen to music. I don't want other people to know about my 3OH!3 addiction, especially when their songs can be kinda...vulgar. Besides, almost every day I come home to my brother blasting music from his speakers, it gets pretty annoying and I'd just rather use headphones all the time.

Okay, I just found out the sound still comes out of my left earbud. It just comes out of the little speaker on the OUTSIDE now, so I have to turn the earbud in the opposite direction of what it's supposed to be and hold the outside up to my ear...

I have no idea what that's all about, but I'm just glad they're not broken like I thought. Maybe I can figure out a way to fix them so the sound comes out the right direction again... hopefully I can.

I don't even know why there's a speaker on the outside in the first place. They're weird Apple earbuds that came with my iPhone a few years ago. They're modified to fit in people's ears a lot better than normal earbuds, and I really like them, but that speaker thing is really weird. I doubt anyone knows what I'm talking about or has any advice for it, but I'd definitely appreciate whatever help I may be able to get. xD

I always do because I'm afraid I'll annoy my family with my music even though we all like the same music pretty much.

sometimes I have headphones in with no music on, mainly so people don't bother me. But otherwise I have them in like 80% of the time.
