Headphones or speakers?


#1

The age old questions returns with a vengeance.

Gonna say headphones for immersion and speakers for extraversion.

Speakers at home, headphones everywhere else.


#4

people who sit alone at home listening to music on headphones rather than speakers are dangerous and need to be locked away


#5

My general rule: Headphones for solo listening, speakers for communal listening


#6

Speakers are undoubtably the best way to listen to music- you’re tied to that area and just the ‘feeling’ of sound is so good.

just love feeling the bass and stuff in my chest, so fucking goooooood

I definitely enjoy music way more out of speakers than earphones, like I connect with music from speakers more than earphones.

You’re wrong mate.


#8

in the house - speakers
travelling - headphones


#9

has anyone tried those ones that transmit vibrations through your cheekbones? bonkers

I’ll be 100% with y’all, never really liked headphones. Always either a bit uncomfortable in-ear or too heavy and cumbersome on the old noggin. Really dislike them tbh and means I rarely listen to music on the go.
Any recommendations for headphones that are genuinely pleasant to wear gladly accepted mind.

Enjoy going deaf at Reading m8

I use nice little Philips in ears from Currys. Good sound, don’t fall out


#13

Find myself using headphones more these days - bought a decent pair and a headphone amp. Only way I can listen to music as loud as I like it, without upsetting the neighbours!

is this something that’s happened in your head, or what? I’d like to believe this is a thing…


#16

guy at work who cycles in told me about them. so you can use your real ears to hear the road. I’ve done that thing where you bite on a stick and connect it with a vibrating pad and you can hear sound, so I guess it would work.


#17

sounds entirely plausible, man. I’m in!


#18

apparently they’re called ‘bone conduction’ headphones


#19

this guy seems convinced…
