Use good headphone can sounds very good but I can't use it listening to music for long period.

I prefer using speaker for music, I use Hidizs AP80 via USB type C audio to cambridge audio DAC 100 to NAD amp to PSB speaker, not hi-end stuff but I am satisfied with the sound quality.

assuming both are the same price

Speaker setup wise you would need to factor in room acoustic while headphone and earphone just need to fix the seal with minimum acoustically issues. Not so much which is better but more which is more suitable for your needs. Like which it's more cinematic to watch a movie in the cinema, it is far more convenient to watch a movie via tablet on my bed in the middle of the night in my pj.


Price wise it is also not fair to compare since a speaker setup can reach hundreds of thousands on a big scale system which much lesser on a headphone setup.

There is pros and cons for each. i am currently having desktop setup (speaker) / with headphone (HD650) / CIEM (With DAP)

What i can say is i really like listening music / movies at home with my speaker on a day / early night time but night time if you need explosive sound i will go for my headphone and sometime my CIEM with DAP at home / going out.

All are good just usage on different purpose.
