    Why do you listen to headphones? Do they sound better? Crowded house? What?

    My family never allows me to use my speakers that I paid for! They use it more than I do, argh. Then again, it is my parents house. Oh and when on the go, you know why... Hehe.

    Even when it's "your" house the on time is very. limited.

    I just like the more personal, immediate sound of headphones. Pretty simple..........well, also I can sneak more of 'em in the house. The Altec Model 19 speakers I tried to bring in awhile back were too easy to find. [​IMG]

    Crowded house. There's no way I'd even bother using my headphones otherwise...my speakers just cream all of them 10 ways till the Sunday.

    Formerly for portability. Now for quality. [​IMG]

    And of course for portability...

    You cant beat a good speaker system for LOUD clear undistorted music with a hell lot of bite [​IMG]

    I never made "Class B" in speakers, myself. Must go check those out! Then again, R10s... [​IMG]

    Value. The only speaker system I've heard lately that beat my HD600+MG Head is Martin Logan Prodigy+$10k Krell amp+Sony SCD-1, and that was at Magnolia Hi-Fi in a special listening room with the soundproof doors closed. I could never get that kind of sound in my room.

    Well chadbang, the Tituses only costed me $380 on the used market...retail is $495. They're the first speakers ever below $500 to make it to Stereophile Class B. [​IMG] And they're just that damn good. [​IMG] Not even the R10s made it to Class B! [​IMG]

    Apartment living. I could never get reasonable levels of audio without neighbors calling the police on me (40 times in one month). For the record, I never got ticketed. Thin walls and a totally ******* neighbor, who never left his apartment, so I could never so much as turn on my stereo without him hearing it. Thank God I got wise and moved.

    I prefer to have the music inside, rather than outside, my head.

    I hope you realize that "even" the Sennheiser 600 and Grado RS-1 are Class A...not to mention the Stax Omega II. [​IMG]

    Mostly value for the money and convenience.
