I thought it would be nice to get a pulse of the membership on which way they consume their music. So please answer the post as it will inform future of the forum.

Thanks.
headphones for music and games. Speakers for movies. I live in a big family house. Sharing the living space has its restrictions.

I'm about 50/50. I prefer speakers (Magnepan 3.6) in my prepared listening room, for both critical listening and musical enjoyment. But I can't always use them since the sound carries through the house. So I end up using headphones (LCD-2 Fazor) about half the time.

That makes me about equally interested in topics from speakers/amps/room treatment, to headphones.

I stopped using headphones on the beach last year and use a wireless speaker linked to my I-phone, its much better and you can get the party vibe started! And ofc if you wanna listen music - try to check this to find the info about vinyls cause the sound quality will be x100 better.

50/50 for me. Partly because conditions (I'm not always home, group playing video games), partly just cause sometimes I prefer headphones

New to the forum; first post.
I use both equally, mostly because my floor is thin and my downstair neighbours can revenge with her bad hifi. Landlord lives in the same building (quadruplex) so I have to behave.

That said, most of my gear is diy/kits, so I have to use it.

Grateful for this forum, and the nice discussions!
