No, but I put earbuds in and pretend to be listening to the conversation when I'm actually listening to music.

I usually do the opposite.
But I don't set out to do this, sometimes I pause and listen.
92% percent of the teen population would be dead if Hollywood said it wasn't cool to breathe anymore.
Put this in your signature if you are one of the 92% who wouldn't be breathing.
I voted for the third option actually too.

The only pair of headphones I own are some vintage noise canceling Koss that are hooked up to my receiver.I dont own earbuds , or an MP3 player.
This looked like it was going to be such a good thread. When I started reading I thought he was going to say "Do you keep your earphones on but the music off so you can....stop annoying ass people from talking to you when you dont want to talk to them." And I was all ready to say "Me! Me! I do that!"

Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:
I like to put the earbuds in my asshole and play Pulling Teeth by Metallica at full volume and then poop out a little lars urlich

i've done it before. it's not something i do regularly, but if i hear something that catches my attention i will pause the music for a bit to see what is being discussed.
I tried to. Because i like to eavesdrop. But i couldnt resist the urge to switch the music on.
Yes. I blast my music up loud (or as everybody think is loud) and then when people talk about me in front of them, they don't realize I can still hear them. Then at the end I say "I can hear you guys"
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

UG Challenge

My music is usually loud enough so that people around me can tell whether or not I'm listening to it. I don't blast them, I just like to be able to hear the 'full' song.

My mind is going. I can feel it.
Well, my headphones are like earmuffs so I can't hear much without music playing. :/ If I think someone's talking about me though, I'll pause the song and listen as hard as I can. I still have my old headphones, which are actually just a headphone. They broke. Anyway, I use that when I take the bus so I can hear if anyone's saying anything about me. Call it paranoia, call it a deluded sense of grandeur, whatever. :P
i cant not evesdrop. if i hear any conversation, i cant tune it out no matter how hard i try. so i use headphones to ignore people. no one's got anything good to say anyway.
I have no opinion on this matter.
Sometimes. Depends on what kind of info's going around. You'd be surprised what you hear when others think you're not listening.

I only did this once. I got on the bus (with music on) and saw some girls I know and said hi and sat near them, I noticed they got really quiet when they saw me so I assumed they were talking about me. I blasted my music for a few seconds so they thought I couldn't hear them, then i turned it down all the way.

They were actually talking about my best friend and how they heard he was cheating on his girl.

I didn't correct them for the lulz

No I just listen to music and their conversation at the same time.

Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.
