    How do you listen to music? MP3 player, iPhone, radio, internet, vinyl?

    If the 50’s and 60's were the era of the record, in the 70's we had tape, (lovely 8-tracks and cassettes!), and the Sony Walkman, then CD's in the 80’s and now MP3's.

    This Day in Music is running a poll to find out how you listen to your music.

    iPhone, though the battery is shall we say... lacklustre.

    Probably doesn't help that I browse facebook at the same time :lol:

    When I'm at home it's either iPhone > HiFi speakers or iTunes into my monitors... though one of them is currently broken and I've only had them a matter of months :mad:

    Up until last year I listened on my iPod with headphones. Now it's with iPod and car speakers almost exlusively.

    unfortunately in front of the computer at work all day and on my ipod to and from work and in the gym.

    when I get a house I plan on getting a nice hi fi setup and a record player, and some time to enjoy it hopefully.

    At home, through my Profire and RP6s, through my Cambridge Audio separates and Gale Gold Monitor speakers, and through my Logitech iPod speaker dock.

    In my car, my iPhone/iPod through the USB port on my Kenwood head unit, Infinity component speakers and Sony subwoofers.

    At work.. literally the shittiest, no-name radio you've ever seen :lol: Though it has an iPod dock and thus charges my phone :yesway:

    I usually have my music playing while playing Xbox Live, which my 360's audio cables are connected to my Yamaha 10 channel mixer, which is connected to my Sennheiser HD380's. When I'm not at home, I still listen to a portable CD player, which is connected to my HD380's. I occasionally listen to my iPod, but I only have one because I got it for Christmas 2007. I uninstalled my itunes about a year ago.
    I don't listen to music while driving. My truck only has AM/FM, and the radio stations here are pure shit.

    At home, some cheap-ish 2.1 speaker set hooked up to my PC. iTunes is my player of choice.

    Out and about, stock in-ear buds with a Nokia E72. Usually have a few albums' worth of listening material on there. Used to use an iPod but it's just easier to have email, contacts and music on one device. I lose the ability to have 80 gigs worth of music in my pocket, but there were tracks, albums, and entire bands on there that I hadn't listened to in years.

    CDs on my car stereo. It's very rare that I listen to music at home or work.
