    Another quick silly poll for the forum ...
    What audio equipment do you (mainly) use when you are driving?

    (kick ass sennheiser headphones is my weapon of choice ... have a decent 5.1 creative setup, but apart from kids usually being in bed in next room when I drive, find the headphones give me every last ounce of detail without driving the neighbours mad :wink:)

    Headphones strictly, helps to keep the concentration very much for me. Sennheiser PC 165 the type, would never change it for anything else.

    Have a 7.1 speaker system, but still did not use it too much, apart from some parties to supply the music background....

    Got some Sennheiser headphones as well and am mainly using them. Have a 5.1 system (very old one) which I love to drive with - mainly because of the subwoofer =) - but I have to turn it up quite a bit to give a good amount of immersion and I still live at my parents home.. so when I'm at home alone I take the 5.1 system.. feels more real to me.

    I use my Speedlink Medusa 5.1 Headphones mostly, if I don't want something on my head then I'll use speakers.

    I use a set of Medusa speed link 5.1 headphones usually. Or I run a set of Mordaunt short 5.1 speakers through an Onkyo AV reciever when i want to annoy the nieghbours with the huge sub that shakes the room.

    5.1 speakers for me as i like the neighbours to hear when i race :)

    ESP is reserved for people like Attila who have alien sim racing powers :D

    I'm using a 5.1 Klipsch system with a Creative X-Fi card, but with all the people using headphones maybe I should give them a try. I have a pair of Sennheiser headphones...

    I use an X-fi Xtrememusic with Sennheiser PC-161's (dont need the USB shizzle of the 166).

    I have some Creative T6100 5.1 speakers but I rarely use them.

    I should have created 4 categories ... Sennheisers being the first on the list!
    Gotta say, wow, what amazingly good taste most of us have! :wink:

    5.1 speakers, although most of the time they are turned down as I work nights and mainly play between 2am and 5am.

    Should invest in some deecent cans.
