    I kinda prefer headphones to earphones, only because I feel earphones fall out of my ears too easily :erm:

      They say to me "I'm listening to music! And I have to make sure you know that too!".

      I use a pair of £40 Skullcandy headphones my ex-girlfriend bought me as a present on my birthday about a week before breaking up with me. They're pretty good, they've deteriorated a bit now and I had to glue them together at one point but they do provide a decent sound experience. I tend to listen to music with a lot of bass so tiny little iPod earphones are useless.

      It's bloody annoying when you've got them round your neck and stab people in the face whenever they try and hug you, mind.

      These were the headphones everyone wore before you could get in-ear ones :dontknow:

      I wear ones like that cos a) my ears are small and a lot of in-ear really hurt my ears after 30 mins wear b) due to small ears most in-ears don't fit and c) if I manage to get them to stay in my ears then if I'm walking I get in a big tangle trying to juggle handbag or whatever and the wires get caught in my hair and trying to organise myself I end up yanking them out. Headband ones stay on your head.

      Unfortunately the Bieber child is involved. I believe he chose the colour. The headphones are called 'Beats by Dr. Dre' hence the 'b' on the ear panels. Purple is my favourite colour but I made very sure in the shop that there was no physical trace of the little girl (picture, signature etc.) on them! :cool:

      In ears do get tangled and mine always break and have lower sound quality but are easy to store and inconspicuos. Outer ears are generally better although I would never walk down the street wearing them. They are too noticeable I would feel self conscious and a bit of a knob, saw a girl wearing them the other day and she was a typical coolio.

      Now you've made me feel silly for having some -.- Well I wear them because my little in-ear ones broke and I was too cheap to spend about £5 on new ones for my phone, lol. So I thought I'd just use the big ones with a handy little adapter on the end. They sound much better too, I care about stupid things like quality :/

      I'd feel a bit self-conscious wearing them I think. They just seem like the kind of thing that only cool/fashionable people can pull off. Whereas I'd probably look a bit geeky and stupid in them.

      Plus I'm put off by the fact that some people seem to just wear them as a fashion accessory, or to prove what a huge music fan they are :rolleyes:

      But if people are wearing them for the right reasons (i.e. practicality, sound quality) then I don't think there's anything wrong with them.
