  • Sandee Cohen December 9, 2013, 10:43 am

    My favorite device has horrible sound quality, but it is the Ion Sound Splash waterproof, bluetooth speaker that I have in the shower for listening to the TV

  • Jay J Dickerson December 9, 2013, 10:46 am

    My favorite music-listening device (that is portable) is my old iPhone 4; and that because it has the largest storage capacity of my apple devices. Depending on the speaker/headphone option I will sometime use a portable amp.
    Btw: I have the m-80 by vModa and love them.

  • Paul Dumstorf Sr December 9, 2013, 10:48 am

    My favorite listening device is my modified 8 yr old Bose Wave radio.
    While traveling a voltage spike from the generator overloaded a internal fuse. In repairing with an external fuseholder/fuse, I installed a headphone jack and now listen in privecy thru an inexpensive pair of Sony headphones that turned out to have the sound quility of the best headphones I’ve ever heard.

  • Jonathan Baker December 9, 2013, 10:54 am

    Favorite device for listening to music is my phone, Samsung Galaxy III.

  • Joshua Schechter December 9, 2013, 11:57 am

    I love listening on my Jambox, but obviously it is not the only way I listen. I also have a pair of Motorola sport headphones that I use at the gym that are great because they never slip and have a slightly longer cord to my Iphone.

  • Ray T December 9, 2013, 12:08 pm

    My favorite listening device is my Motorola Razr Maxx HD with Pandora. I always have my phone with me, so this is my goto device.

  • Mark W Thomas December 9, 2013, 12:10 pm

    My favorite music player is through my Nexus 7 then through Nyruis Bluethooth receiver and captured by the Yamaha RX-A1030 7.2-Channel A/V receiver and finally erupted out of the dual bass Bose Acoustimass 10 Series IV home entertainment speaker system. All I can say after listening to this setup is Shock & Awe, no matter what I’m listening too. Have a nice day 🙂

  • Peter Kohn December 9, 2013, 12:26 pm

    Still my favorite is my 160 GB iPod Classic, there has been nothing to beat its capacity or ease of use.

  • Sufyan December 9, 2013, 12:36 pm

    Usually on my PC.

  • Marco DiGiulio December 9, 2013, 12:51 pm

    the iPod

  • Marko December 9, 2013, 12:59 pm

    My favorite music listening device is my Toshiba 1.5 TB USB HD which is loaded up with 16 and 24bit flac files. In my home office I plug the HD into my work or personal laptop, or netbook, which in turn is connected to my Audioengine D1 DAC that drives my bamboo Audioengine A5+’s. This set-up sounds fantastic.

  • Walt December 9, 2013, 1:01 pm

    My favorite music listening device: Sonos wireless music system

  • Emilio December 9, 2013, 1:21 pm

    my iphone 4S has been my main way of listening music besides my macbook pro.

  • Tim Harbst December 9, 2013, 1:21 pm

    Listen on iphone- mostly podcasts-

  • Carmelino Guiao December 9, 2013, 1:35 pm

    I like using my HTC One with beats audio. Spotify works wonders on that things.

  • Joni Bender December 9, 2013, 1:40 pm

    On my HTC with good old fashion corded ear buds….

  • Carl December 9, 2013, 2:17 pm

    I use iPhone 5 to listen mostly

  • dmchapin December 9, 2013, 2:23 pm

    I still prefer a nice recliner and my beat-up 25-year-old set of Koss headphones… Lets me close out the rest of the chaos.

  • mike December 9, 2013, 2:32 pm

    iPod mini for me.

  • AR December 9, 2013, 2:35 pm

    I usually listen on SONOS. Ease of use and access (have it in multiple rooms).

  • Ray Raddatz December 9, 2013, 2:41 pm

    I listen to music mostly on Pandora via my Galaxy Note 2.

  • Rick Courrau December 9, 2013, 2:46 pm

    I listen to iTunes radio. I like the customization like Pandora and I can flag songs on my wish list or buy them on the spot. Convenient.

  • Jon December 9, 2013, 3:32 pm

    My favorite music listening device is a megaphone.

  • Daniel Bertalotto December 9, 2013, 3:44 pm

    My iPhone. It’s always with me!

  • Frederick Reich December 9, 2013, 3:50 pm

    I enjoy Internet radio on my WiFi home network. It is limitless, enabling me to hear music, talk shows, and so on. it let’s me travel without leaving the sanctity of home. Isn’t that the idea of the Internet. I even let it play softly in the background when watching TV. I just love technology.

  • Jim Clarke December 9, 2013, 3:55 pm

    My favorite music listening device is my iPhone 4 because the phone and the music are always available for me to use.

  • John December 9, 2013, 4:01 pm

    easily my iphone since it goes everywhere with me.

  • Tim Medley December 9, 2013, 4:09 pm

    I use my iPhone 5 as my primary listening device.

  • Amfishy December 9, 2013, 4:19 pm

    Which device? The one that is with me.
    I like Google Play and use that and Winamp (ok, I’m stuck in the past) on the PC and S GS3. The S GS3 does fine with music at modest volume through ear buds or the car. It fails when I’m listening to music while going to sleep. First, w/o add-ons, I can’t reduce the song volume low enough to be practical to fall to sleep to. Second if I do at on a volume dampener via Equalizer, there is SO much hiss added to the signal that it’s unlistenable. At low volume while dozing off, the Apple iPod Nano G6(postage stamp) works very well.

  • Michael Jacobs December 9, 2013, 4:26 pm

    My favorite music listening device is my iPod Classic filled with music using a Fostex headphone Amp. Would sound great with new V-Moda headphones !

  • John December 9, 2013, 5:26 pm

    My sansa clip+. With rockbox firmware, it sounds better than my iPhone 5

  • nick a December 9, 2013, 6:57 pm

    I use my Lumia 920 loaded with my library and i occasionally use it to stream from the hype machine
    The output to my car speakers is amazing and I’ve tuned it to avoid the vibrating windows when playing loud

  • Carol December 9, 2013, 8:49 pm

    My ipod touch! Cant beat it!

  • jna December 9, 2013, 9:11 pm

    The 45 record player that was built into the buffet where I played the first single I ever bought myself…

  • millen December 9, 2013, 9:49 pm

    My IPhone 4

  • Corey Saxton December 9, 2013, 10:04 pm

    I used to use my ipod the most in college, but now I just plug into my laptop while I’m writing and working.

  • Vin December 9, 2013, 10:20 pm

    I listen to music on my nexus 7 using Google now. I love it!

  • Brian December 9, 2013, 10:22 pm

    My iTouch 4th Gen. for audiobooks and music.

  • Steve December 9, 2013, 11:30 pm

    I listen to my iPod all the time…on the road, at home,in the gym,etc.! It’s great!!!

  • Dylan R December 10, 2013, 12:31 am

    My favorite device has to be the Ipad. Although it is large and impossible to carry around normally, the audio is very powerful and much more enriched than with an iPhone. There are new features to the music that you couldn’t hear before. As a violinist, and percussionist, I treasure listening to all kinds of music, and the Ipad delivers the best sound quality for any mobile device that I have yet to see.

  • Jay December 10, 2013, 12:32 am

    Just dropped the Zune 32GB believe it or not (kept that going)… now have moved onto my HTC One looking for the next main source for my music.

  • Chris December 10, 2013, 12:34 am

    I love listening to 45s on my Sony Phonograph. Old school.

  • gregg December 10, 2013, 1:06 am

    I use iPhone 5 as my main listening device

  • Donald Perrin December 10, 2013, 1:18 am

    I LUV my Espresso by Latte! I have the 16gig size, (comes in 4 – 8 – 16gigs). It is touch screen with, text reader and writer, voice recorder, photo viewer, G-sensor for rotate or tilt, FM radio and transmitter (send music to car radio wireless), and plays my 4000+ Mp3 songs! Oh and it plays videos too! lasts about 6-8 hrs music, 2-4 hrs video (charge with AC wall plug or USB from computer)! I use this almost daily on walks, hikes, bike rides, and blockout annoying friends! Costs about $100.00 USD. Well worth it!

  • Cheryl A December 10, 2013, 1:33 am

    My favorite is my husband’s guitar amp. He is actually quite good. The headphones would be great for when I’m not wanting to listen especially considering the headphones that he had vanished when we were moving. (those weren’t that great anyway)

  • Nick@Night December 10, 2013, 2:07 am

    I would have to say my Note 2 phone because its always with me. These headphones sure would boost the experience.

  • RudyG December 10, 2013, 2:42 am

    Lately it has been the combination of iphone 5s and pandora. the quality of the sound is much better. I think using the 5s has enhanced the audio quality with any headset. I think the wireless ones sound better too. I do hope i win so i can prove it once for all.

  • Mike December 10, 2013, 3:37 am

    My favorite listening device is my off brand MP3 player that sounds great plugged into my HD Radio in my car via USB and can be controlled through the deck.

  • geckoseiya December 10, 2013, 4:43 am

    I use my iPhone 5.

  • erik December 10, 2013, 6:29 am

    I use my PC with NI Audio 8 sound card, TMA-1 headphones and a subpac 🙂

  • Dave Hauser December 10, 2013, 7:31 am

    As I spend most of my time in the shop I use my Sony Vaio laptop for music listening pleasure.

  • Bill Greene December 10, 2013, 9:22 am

    5th gen ipod nano. Big enough to serve me, small enough to carry.

  • G Montgomery December 10, 2013, 10:02 am

    Sansa Clip. Low cost, reliable, and allows several bookmarks (useful when coming back to long podcasts. Actually I have several of them. One has just podcasts -listen to in the car. Others with music of various genres and some additional short podcasts.

  • Gabe Hospelhorn December 10, 2013, 10:32 am

    My all time favorite was my Sony NW-HD5…red aluminum body. It was compact, super portable, and had shock sensors to protect the hard drive actuators…just loved it. My current EDC is a Cowan X7 (160 GB)…magnificent fidelity for all of my FLAC converted music.

  • Randy December 10, 2013, 11:25 am

    I’ve always been partial to Bose but have not had the luxury of trying out there headphones yet. Maybe one day….

  • scott correy December 10, 2013, 11:31 am

    My iPhone 5 because it is always with me.

  • Scott December 10, 2013, 11:48 am

  • Don Galleto December 10, 2013, 12:09 pm

    My Rockboxed Sansa Clip is awesome.

  • Ed Hubert December 10, 2013, 12:22 pm

    My Galaxy S4; with me at all times

  • David December 10, 2013, 1:20 pm

    My Motorola Triumph Android phone. Pandora makes my commute seem much shorter!

  • John Breski December 10, 2013, 1:27 pm

    My favorite listening device is a fan shaped appendage made of cartilage on each side of my head.

  • Randy December 10, 2013, 1:43 pm

    I think the music source is far less important than the sound reproduction method, so whether CD, ipod, iphone, android or windows I always use my Bose Quietcomfort II phones, though I am seriously considering an upgrade to B&O H6 or the P7 from B&W. For commuting, nothing beats the B&W P3s.

  • jermaine clark December 10, 2013, 1:56 pm

    My android phone

  • Nick Ashton December 10, 2013, 1:57 pm

    My Magnavox D2999 AM/FM/Shortwave receiver, a remarkable radio that isn’t available anymore.

  • Annette December 10, 2013, 3:55 pm

    My laptop is my favorite for listening to music.

  • Chris H December 10, 2013, 4:00 pm

    Though I have a “stereo” in every room, my iPhone 4S is still what provides the majority of my daily music fix! And though I started out listening only to my own music files on my iPod way back when…. nowadays high quality streaming services like Spotify are what fill my life with joy, with minimal playlist management and artist searching. 🙂

  • William A Johnson December 10, 2013, 4:34 pm

    Over the years I have become addicted to I-Heart radio as it gives me the flexibility to choose stations around the country and the type of music I am in the mood for any time.
    At work that is so nice since normal broadcast sucks Here in North Augusta South Carolina the stations fade in and out depending on the weather.

  • Brian Hensley December 10, 2013, 5:24 pm

    Sandisk Sansa Clip+ Rockboxed for portable use. MicroSDHC compatibility w/ FLAC support.

    FIIO E7 tied into FUBAR w/ ASIO4ALL for at work. Solid DAC and amp completely bypassing windows default audio system.

  • Joel Day December 10, 2013, 5:35 pm

    I love car audio! I have a pair of Diamond Audio 6.25″ drivers in my truck and they spit some seriously crystal clear noise. Other than that, I’m a big fan of my Definitive Technology home theater setup. I’ve never owned a good pair of headphones, hoping you can change that! Best of luck to everyone!

  • Pedro Yelo December 10, 2013, 5:53 pm

  • Vanessa December 10, 2013, 10:58 pm

    iPhone because of portability (otherwise would be my car)

  • Ross Alison December 10, 2013, 10:58 pm

    Love listening to Pandora on my laptop, ipod, and iphone. Would love some good quality headphones to listen to them with.

  • Steve Hoang December 11, 2013, 12:09 am

    I love using my galaxy note 1 and my samsung galaxy s2. But the one i depend the most on is my laptop, it has all of my music and I can isolate myself from everything else
