    I use to use High Quality Earphones, and sometimes my sound system. I like it better than not having anything plugged in.
    I use to love playing Mario Kart DS (on wifi) and you can hear what side the people are behind you. You can hear people throwing things.

    What do you use?
    Headphones, Surround Sound Speakers, without anything..etc

    I use headphones mainly when the music's good or is a big part of the game (e.g. osu), otherwise it depends on how I'm feeling. Never even though of using a sound system [​IMG]

    I use the built-in speakers, they're good enough for me.

    The speakers are working fine for me... Maybe I'll try some headphones sooner or later.

    Most of the time I don't listen to the sound in a game. Only Tetris, MPH, BiA and EBA/Ouendan do I bother. Tetris on the DS speaker the others headphones.

    60% I just play with the regular speakers. 38% with high quality ear phones, which is mostly when im watching anime/movies while laying on the bed. 2% when I connect the ds to the computer/speaker access for recording music that I particulary liked from a game. That pretty much sums it up [​IMG]

    Yeah I usually watch stuff (At the moment old Doctor Who, Sealab 2021 & various music videos) on the DS, the missus complains if I watch stuff on the telly or laptop. Its a pain having to convert everything but I don't mind as I can just relax. Don't like to watch stuff on the PSP as I have to hold the damn thing as I don't have a stand or anything.

    Got a some PC speakers in the bathroom that I use with the DS so I can listen to stuff when I'm taking a bath and drinking wine.

    Nice comfortable headphones are my preference. Or I hook up the game to my speaker set.

    I just use the internal DS speakers. I don't like not being able to hear things going on around me.
