Headphones are just better detailed performers for the dollar. I have above average speakers (not as nice as those lovely curved cabinet floorstanders in DoctaCosmos' picture), but I just can't use them as often as I can use amazing headphones, and I can't justify big speaker furniture when I consider the future with kids and pets. Don't get me wrong, many speakers are AMAZING and I wish I had the money to have a quality full HT setup in it's own room, but... I don't feel so left out with nice headphones.
