    Definitely headphones, but depends on the activity too. If I'm out for a jog/run/biking, then definitely earbuds. If I'm sitting comfortably somewhere, I prefer the sound quality and comfort of normal headphones.

    In-ears are smaller, easier to carry around and sound better IMO.

    Headphones for better sound quality, earbuds when on the move.

    Headphones can be kind of bulky but are worth it in desktop applications. Earbuds are better in all other scenarios.

    It depends. If I want high audio fidelity, my massive Sennheiser. I have a separate wireless headset that is convenient for walking around or doing chores or what have you and is good quality. Then I use earbuds on the train because I can roll them up and shove them in my pocket. But more often than not, headphones.

    I prefer using headphones when I'm at home. It has better sound quality in general. But when I'm outside, I would use earbuds.

    As mentioned above, it all depends on your intended use for these items... When I'm home, I'll use my headphones. However, when I'm out then I use high quality earbuds with my iPhone.
    Headphones generally create much better sound quality than earbuds, but good luck getting them in your pocket.

    Depends on your activity. If you're gonna use it outdoors like while running or on your way to work(listening to portable mp3 players), use earbuds. If you're gonna use it to do a project like sound editing, or you simply want to enjoy finer sound quality, use headphones. Brand affects quality too. So choose wisely. :D

    Ideally, we could all pick whatever we liked whenever we did.
    So I would vote for:
    Both!
