    Nowadays, there are many, many ways to access songs only available on records. Computers, tablets, music players, phones, CDs, etc. are now all common for almost anyone to get to. So, how do you listen to music?

    When I am at home, I'll listen to my music on my laptop or my record player (I collect vinyl nowadays). However, I'm normally outside of the house, so I'll typically have my phone with me at all times. I listen to music almost all the time when I'm walking to class or out at lunch or even in class but shh ;). It's quite the invention. I use spotify mostly for my music, but for the songs outside of it, I'll download them and listen to them on iTunes.

    There's Spotify which I use at home and my normal downloaded(purchased) music on my phone. I only use youtube for videos.

    I mainly use the music I've bought and Spotify and YouTube when I'm at school (Spotify doesn't work on their Wi-Fi but YouTube does lmao)

    I typically use spotify and youtube a lot, or youtube streaming extensions. I have a fair collection of mp3s stored as well that I can bring up when offline. When online, I typically prefer spotify

    I listen to my music with my nose, because I'm edgy.

    I listen to almost all of my music from my computer, and a tiny bit from the games I have on my 3ds. Since I currently lack a smartphone/tablet/ipod, I do not have a way to portably listen to music. The thing I like best about using my computer is the freedom I have in choosing my music choices, as I have all of Youtube and Soundcloud without having to use data.

    Spotify is the only way to listen to music.

    I listen to music by plugging headphones into either my laptop or iPad. I'd use my iPod too but it's old and I have no clue where it went lol.

    My 2 main methods of listening to music are through Spotify or my music app on my phone. I use Spotify on both my phone and laptop, it's nice to have all my music available on more than 1 device.
    For any songs that aren't on Spotify, I usually download them and listen to them with my phone's music app, or I listen to them on YouTube if I'm too lazy to download them.

    Does anybody here have ears? That's how I listen to my music. Wizard's almost to this level of avant-garde-ness...

    My music is all on my desktop. My laptop I have networked to stream music from my desktop, and that covers most of my music needs. Other than that I have an old (but perfectly functional) Zune I use when I'm working out, and my car works best with CDs. Yeah, I burn myself a new CD every month or so. It's hard picking out a variety of songs to barely cram into an 80 minute list, but I'm getting better at trimming songs. Removing and fading intros and outros, all that.

    I'm finally getting myself a smartphone soon, so that will replace my Zune for exercise and public transportation music, but I'll still have CDs for my car for a while yet.

    I usually listen via Youtube or Spotify on my computer. I just find it easier to stream music without really having to pay and download it.

    I listen to music on my good old Walkman, which I won from one of those gaming machines with prizes they put in arcades.

    I put most of my music on my iPod, which I listen to with headphones when I'm out. When I'm driving, I plug it into my speakers and set it to one of my various playlists on shuffle. Way better than listening to the radio!

    When I'm home, though, I either listen to music on my iTunes or look up music on YouTube. If my parents are home I'll listen with my headphones, but if I'm home alone I'll plug my laptop into my external speakers and play it through there, haha.

    @[member="Deltheor"] I agree with Del on this! Typically if I'm out or at school I'll pull out my ipod and listen to it or songs from youtube on it. If I'm home I'll use my laptop and hook up a speaker for better sound quality. I'm really a nerd when it comes to music quality and refuse to listen to it through anything that doesn't catch all the beats.

    RIP my ears.

    I listen to music a lot. Usually I'll just find a YouTube playlist I've made and let it run on my speakers as I'm doing stuff throughout the day. Sometimes I'll use my ipod and listen to music as I'm walking to my classes, but I tend not to because I like being able to hear stuff around me as I walk.

    I pick up a lot of songs from other people or browsing YouTube. And as a result I'll listen to it on YouTube, but if I can buy it I'll download it to my phone.

    I use Spotify or my phone's music app. I use Spotify on my phone too, but some artists aren't on Spotify and when I want to listen to them I break out the music app on my phone. Generally speaking though, both on the road and on the computer, I use Spotify unless someone is showing me a song by a YouTube link.
