Like most of you, i love anime, but i could never really focus on the sound. It felt like characters were moving there mouths and sound was coming out but they weren't really speaking, and the background tracks just felt... there. But then i tried putting my ipod earphones into my laptop (it was at full volume too) and had an almost euphoric reaction. I could hear everything vivdly and there was no lag, plus it was from headphones so playing it loud won't bother anyone else. Before this I never understood the appeal of K-On (i know its supposed to be "moe" or cute but hat wasn't enough for me to consider something a good show) but with the sounds and music playing clearly right into my head i started to love the show. I think this is 1000x better than listening through speakers, if you have headphones lying around try it,

TOGETHER WE CAN START THE IPOD ANIME REVOLUTION!!!!

I've been using gaming headsets for a good few years, it's only natural to want some privacy whilst listening/watching/playing but I'd assume that majority of people would have already been doing this.

Also a heads up for people using earphones, I suggest using the sockets from the PC/Laptop instead of plugging through speakers, it often distorts the earphones and the quality of pitch it produces.

I always watch anime with headphones since I don't want to bother anyone in the house when I'm watching late at night. Really I think the quality would depend upon your headphones and speakers. Since I have cheap pc speakers my headphones do sound better but I think my stereo speakers would have even better quality than my headphones.

I don't think I've ever watched it without earphones or headphones. Well, maybe once, when I was watching it on our HD TV at full volume and I was home alone.

They're just earphones; you haven't discovered anything new. People have been doing this way before you have, including myself.

hmm maybe the fact ( headphones + laptop = better quality ) surprised me so much is because i've never met anyone else who watches anime, i didn't think it was done so much already.

I've used them before but I didn't find it any better than watching without earphones.

Were you high on something when you had this magic moment with earphones?
Posted 1/16/11
It's okay... I only use earphones whenever I don't want to disturb the others around me.

lol try watching it with "beats by Dr.Dre" ever since i tryed them instead of my surround 7.1 speakers (which is a beast for partys) i been using them regardless of the day.
if u can't afford "beats" then try get "Bose", their sound is comparable to beats.
don't get skull candy, they ain't comfortable in long preiods.

and yes u do hear everything u don't relise in speakers, thats confirmed... even if your using the stock apple headphones (tho its not as refined as the headphones)

don't lision to people saying beats are crap, they say that because they can't afford it... unless they are talking about beats solos, then yeh sure they are crap. Solo HDs, Studios, Pros are the way to go, tho i haven't notice sound difference between Pro & Studios.

Just of notice - Thank you for reading!

if u was using stock apple headphones or any old cheep 1 then thats why.
but it could be your Soundcard in your PCI Slot or Built in your motherboard is utter crap.

either one of them two. *UNLESS* you wasn't watching 480P or 720P thos also some times have affect with the Audio you're streaming
