Yes very much so. Here is a typical day for me:
6 AM-6:30AM: Wake up to music, then music in the shower and while making oatmeal and having a coffee. Admittedly this is the radio but still.
6:30-6:45AM: Drive to work = more music
6:45-7:45AM: Work out at the gym at my office, iGrado + Shuffle
8:00-12:00PM: Work, listen to Westone UM2 + Nano
12:00-12:30PM: Drive to school, listen to music on the way
12:30-5:30PM: While studying in my office, music! RS-1/RA-1 + Macbook Pro hooked up to a 500 GB external drive
5:30-6:00PM: Drive home, music of course
6:00-6:30PM: Eat supper in silence, or quasi silence, discussing with the fam the daily activities
6:30-7:30PM: Evening Jazz with the kids as we play before bed time, last two tracks of the evening are always 1 crazy electronic track to get that last bit of energy out of them and then one mellow track to calm them back down.
7:30-8:00PM: Bath and bed routine, no music
8:00-9:00PM: Spend some down time with my wife before she heads off to bed
9:00PM-3:00AM: Study with some downtime mixed in. Most of that 6 hours I have headphones on, main rig! or, if I'm reading for pleasure, I'll have the stereo on with background music. If video games? Music for sure.
2:00AM-3:15AM: Ambient so I can get into the groove of sleeping. UM2's and the Nano here.
3:00AM-6:AM: Sleep most days. This isn't healthy but it is what I have been doing for years now and save for the loss of some well admired hair...I'm doing okay!
So out of 24 hours, I'm listening to music in some form for about 18 hours on some days. That is a lot of music! Some days it may be 12, others if I'm busy or I really need to concentrate, it will be 4. Still, imagine listening to that much music over and over again. It gets to the point where I can just stop using a device think of a piece and I will hear it. I don't like when I do that, I'd rather listen to it
or better, listen to new fresh music. I'm always expanding my tastes so I hear new tunes. I suppose my last horizon is getting deeper into rap and country. I feel I can sidestep pop country but bluegrass is getting interesting. Rap though, gosh...I can count on one hand the artists I enjoy. Just not for me.
