Poll: Do you listen to movies or TV over headphones?

Sure, most folks are more likely to use headphones to listen to music, but some of you are also listening to movies, TV shows, or YouTube with them.

I suppose it's still a fair assumption that more people listen to music than movies with headphones, but there has to be a growing audience listening to movies, TV shows, and YouTube videos via their headphones. Thanks to the booming popularity of tablets, might the ratio of movies-to-music listening time be moving away from music? Or not?

I watch a lot of movies at home with headphones on. They present a level of detail that you can get from speakers only when you play them really loud. With headphones, I don't have to crank the volume. They're also handy when other people in my apartment are sleeping.

If you watch movies or TV shows on an iPad, you most likely listen via headphones. Some folks probably use a single Bluetooth speaker for movie sound with tablets, but then again, if you have a decent home theater you're more likely to listen with speakers. Do you watch movies on your computer, and if you do, do you prefer headphones or speakers? Do your headphones sound better than your computer speakers? Of course, where you watch may skew the headphones-versus-peakers preference one way or another.

Please share your movie vs. music listening over headphones experiences in the comments section.
