Being a youngster with limited resources, I generally just listen to my music with my iPod using bluetooth headphones or wired earphones. 

When my ears hurt, I just play the music either through my laptop's speakers (not ideal) or through portable speakers.

If you are a youngster you need to take care with your hearing ( I am assuming that it is your hearing rather than the outer ear which is hurting). My brother and some friends now wear hearing aids because of early life noise exposure.

Agreed - please take a moment to look at the Action on Hearing Loss page: https://www.actionon...loud-music.aspx.

 

I use earphones if listening on my phone etc but they are good noise cancelling ones and I have the volume turned quite low.

At home, I have a substantial hi-fi system, input to which may be turntable, CD player, iPhone/iPad/PC, or the satellite receiver. In the car, it's either radio or my phone via USB port. I sometimes listen at work using headphones and phone.

I only really listen to music in the car or on the PC (with or without earphones).

Thanks for the advice :) I will take that into account. I do try not to listen to music for prolonged periods. And also, I listen less and less to music when I head out, and listen more to nature.

I imagined the opposite as I find earphones uncomfortable in less than an hour. I have to use over ear ones as I can't fit even small in ear ones comfortably at all.
