I listen to my cans about 2-3 hours each day and maybe sometimes a few more hours at night and into my sleep, which I don't really count...but if it did that would again add another 5 hours onto my total. Sleeping with headphones seems to really help me sleep much better and more soundly. Well, that and along with my tempur-pedic, it also contributes to that extreme comfort!! But as school is starting soon, those numbers could change in that they could go either way. Sometimes, while doing homework, I will listen to my cans even more due to the fact that I sometimes have a ton of H.W. But, if it is during a day where I have school all day long without much time to do anything else, and am not at home, the listening time is severely shortened. And during the days wherein I don't listen to them at all, my day quickly turns into a very bad and depressing day.
So overall, school can be a good thing for headphones, or the opposite.
I'm also curious as to how you guys/girls listen to your cans in terms of what position you find yourselves mostly in, or what position you are most comfortable with?
I mostly listen sitting up in a chair while doing HW. But when I'm reading or am completely immersed in the music and nothing else, I lie down on my bed. This allows my mind to be transported to that special psychedelic/euphoric/blissful-like place (without drugs of course
), transfixed into that meditative-like state of mind a lot easier vs. sitting up.
