Unless I'm using voice chat (which is not often) it is much easier to use my speakers, so speakers it is. Also wax does not build up in my ears when I'm listening to speakers. It just gets uncomfortable after awhile.
 
By the way, what are "headohones?" :tongue:

really depents on what time it is :P

 

most of the time i am gaming around 10pm, so then i just put on headphones because of the sounds the game makes, during the day i use speakers.

I like headphones, but I do only have terrible speakers so maybe I would like nice speakers better.

Headphones are more immersive.  Especially for games like Amnesia.

I prefer headphones but my gaming sessions are usually too long for that to be comfortable. Anymore I use speakers mostly, but still prefer my headphones.

Since my rig is in the living room with the TV, gotta use headphones so as not to disturb the wife.

Always headphones, far better experience in my opinion unless you've got a decent speaker system and the ability to up the volume without upsetting anyone.
