I prefer earphones for the portability, but jeeebus they do not stay in even with the loop around the ear trick.
get the ones with the little grippy inserts on them. i use the smallest size of grippies that come with mine; they stay put and dont feel weird in my ears. i think airtightness of the hard earphones (like apple's disasterous earbuds) or even the larger grips can mess with your ear pressure and its actually a very weird feeling

Headphones for the laptop or pc and earphones on the go. I bought a couple of great earphones 4 years back. Most of the time earphones don't fit my ears. Because of my ears being a bit small. I like my music loud and I like great sound. So earphones do the best job for me

I currently have a few sets of each, Bose in-ear, Beats Solo 3 wireless, AirPods, and a few review models of various options.

If I had to choose one, it would definitely be the in-ear AirPods. They connect flawlessly and are truly wireless which is super convenient for all environments.

Anything other than headphones I just find incredibly uncomfortable and/or don't like the sound of. Earphones I just find insanely uncomfortable and don't understand how people can even use them literally like putting rocks in your ears.

Earphones for when I'm out and about, headphones for indoor use.

I wear earphones, since I've always just found it awkward and uncomfortable to wear headphones.

Ear phones obviously. The wireless models are so comfortable.

I generally use earbuds because they're cheap and take up less space, but headphones are fine.

Headphones have better sound quality to me, and they don’t hurt my ears like ear phones do. they seriously really hurt and that why I don’t like them very much. I still would wear them if I didn’t have any headphones around, but if I could choose, it would be headphones 100%

Headphones due to better sound quality. Plus my headphones can raise and lower the volume. Great for when I listen to bass singers who go down low on songs. The major problem I have with earphones is that they are easier to break, they won't stay in my ears and it hurts my ears.
