Small apartment, had a baby, sold speakers. I'm thinking about buying a stereo again, but I'm happy with IEMs at this point. One reason being that I often spend time in the kitchen or elsewhere. If I had a stereo for music in the living room, I'd have to stay there.

I usually play too loud, but neighbours on four sides also has something to do with it.

Simple answer, sometimes I just wanna hear a single song or put something on conveniently and easily without throwing a record or CD on, which I do plenty of as well!

In the evening I sometimes just use my A&R AR25 with Meze Classics, cant be bothered firing up the main system. If I'm ready for a session I still have to think of others, so I will probably still use headphones ( I have a pair of stax lamda on the main hi fi).
When everyone is out though, its speakers all,the way.

I'm interested to know why people use headphones at home:

That one is easy ... I decided I didn't want anyone from PA hearing it!

Besides, they wouldn't be interested in music, anyway, just songs, right? Wink
