My preferred way is to completely immerse myself by lying down somewhere with headphones on so I can just concentrate totally on the music. However the reality is mainly headphones whilst walking the dogs or through home speakers when family are out!
Always via Spotify, mostly at my desk when WFH via computer speakers, but also in the car or through some Sonos speakers in the house or my bluetooth headphones if I’m doing the shopping or gardening, or whilst in bed.
Last.FM yearly report shows I listen most first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Listening peaks on a Friday when new releases are out then decreases gradually as the week moves on (climbs slightly on Thursday when I might start a bit of pre-release day research).
currently it’s normally at home while i’m working, either from my phone through my bluetooth speaker, or through my CD player
sometimes listen to music while out and about but recently been more of a podcast dickhead for walks. though in the last couple of weeks i’ve drifted back to music as i’ve been more in the mood for that. have a free trial of Apple Music for a few months and i’ve made a massive library to get through before it runs out
I’ve through home speakers but adding some comments too
At home it’s either via my work laptop (when wfh) or Alexa/bluetooth speaker from my phone (Spotify) when casually listening around the house/in the garden. In the car it’s also bluetooth from my phone.
Sometimes (though less often than i’d like) through our stereo system (either CD or vinyl) when having a “proper” listen.
Don’t often use headphone unless i’m walking/in the actual office.
Walk to work is about 20 mins, so headphones in during the walk to/from work. Bluetooth phone to car when driving. Have a Bluetooth speaker (Bose Minilink II) and probably have that going for a few hours a day at home when not working. My wife likes the radio, so sometimes listen to that.
All streamed via my phone using Spotify. Have turntable but it isn’t connected atm
