headphones

anybody playing atmosphairic rpgs and not having headphones is missing much much much!

unless you're living in alaska (but still the sealions would make some noise) get the headphones that cover the whole of your ears and insulate against outside noise.

Immersion x2

I'm playing with REALLY improperly positioned 5.1 surround speakers!

I play with fine German engineered Sennheiser headphones, the girls use them, too. Zpapa uses AKGs, being a music professional guy.

We throw away earbuds in this house.

Remember when they sold regular headphones because earbuds were bad for your hearing?

i dont think they are unless you crack up the volume?
headphones i think are better not only because they insulate against outside noise but also because at i feel more safe when plugging them in a PC.
Some things could go wrong in the software/hardware and when you start listening to the relaxing ambient wind and the gentle throttle of tree leafs in skyrim, something goes wrong and you hear a hardware screaming 10 times the original volume?

it's better if that happens when wearing headphones and not the flea size onces.

(that has never happened but it could happen)
