It depends. While working on coding or other PC stuff I only can listen for about 3 hours before I get too fatigued. But when out in the woodshop I listen to my earbuds in my hearing protection earmuffs for about 6-8 hrs at a time.

Only and hour or so through headphones. My better setup is in my room, and the computer isn't there, which I need for homework. Through my computer speakers, 3-4 hours a day. They have a very laidback sound, so I tend to be able to tolerate a long listening session.

About 5 hours a day.

2-3 hours at home and 2-3 hours throughout the day.

For me I would only listen to my headphones when I'm really listening to music not when I need some background music(the speakers does this instead). And also when I do not want to wake my brother up from his dreamland

Roughly an hour and a half with my portable setup during the commute during the day, and 4-5 hours (pretty much every spare second) once I get home from work.

I don't listen to headphones every day. When I do, I can wear the A900s for 4-5 hours. Usu. it's speakers. I put 2 hours as a reasonable average, even though it varies greatly from day to day.
