To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I should write such an article or not. One side of my brain was telling me, this is a really useless idea and the article will be useless, as well, and the other half of my brain was telling me that I have to write this article, especially for the younger generation that most probably wouldn’t know how to listen to music if their headphones break.

And guess what?! As always, I chose to sacrifice my peace of mind in order to write this article and help the youth! Yes, we both know that I don’t get appreciated enough, but that’s okay!

In this article, I’m basically going to go through the ways you can listen to music without headphones! Yes, this is the moment when you realize that you can actually listen to music without headphones and that headphones aren’t really a necessary item in your life if you aren’t using them for professional purposes.

I’m going to go through three main ways that I think are side options to listen to music when you are missing your headphones or you had them broken for some reason!

But, since you made me write this article, you are not allowed to escape that easily. You are not going to only read the three ways of listening to music without ear headphones, you also will read everything about them and every detail that I’m going to include. No, that’s not a threat but I am advising you to do so.

Here I go!

How To Listen To Music Without Headphones?


Yes, is that simple. No ear headphones? No problem, just connect the speaker to your computer or phone and enjoy listening to your favorite playlist. Let me get a little bit into more details about speakers.

One of the most popular output devices for computer systems is the speaker. While some speakers may be connected to any type of sound system, some are made expressly to function with computers. The goal of speakers is to generate audio output that the listener can hear, regardless of how they are constructed, although the sound vibrations don’t go directly into your ears, you will still be able to hear them in a really good manner.

Transducers, like speakers, transform electromagnetic waves into sound waves. A device, like a computer or audio receiver, provides audio input to the speakers. This input could be digital or analog in nature. The analog electromagnetic waves are simply amplified into sound waves using analog speakers.

Digital speakers must first convert the digital input to an analog signal before producing sound waves since sound waves are produced in analog form.

Stereo sound can be produced by speakers, which are normally sold in pairs. This indicates that the left and right speakers send sounds on two distinct channels.

Since our ears are accustomed to hearing sounds coming from both the left and right at the same time, utilizing two speakers makes music sound much more realistic. Four to seven speakers (plus a subwoofer) may be used in surround systems, which further enhances the realism.


Yes, believe it or not, you can still listen to the radio if you don’t have headphones. I know that sounds old-fashioned, but I have discovered the best songs listening to the radio. So, listening to the radio is the best way to expand the range of songs, a good way to not be limited only to the music you are used to listening to.

Just like I did with the speaker, I’m also going to get into details with the radio, as well, so keep reading the details, too, cause I might know that you are skipping the part that follows.

The use of radio waves for signaling and communication is known as radio technology. Electromagnetic waves with a frequency between 30 hertz (Hz) and 300 gigahertz are known as radio waves (GHz).

They are produced by a radio transmitter, an electrical device that emits waves when attached to an antenna, and are picked up by a radio receiver, which is connected to a different antenna. Radio is utilized in a wide variety of applications in modern technology, including radio communication, radar, radio navigation, remote control, and remote sensing.

Radio waves are used to carry information across space from a transmitter to a receiver in radio communication, which is used in radio and television broadcasting, cell phones, two-way radios, wireless networking, and satellite communication, among many other applications.

The transmitter modulates the radio signal, imprinting an information signal on the wave by changing some aspect of the wave. In radar, a beam of radio waves emitted by a radar transmitter reflects off the target item, revealing the location of the object. Radar is used to identify and track objects like airplanes, ships, satellites, and missiles.

Yes, you read that right! Believe it or not, radio was used as a tool of communication once upon a time, and you sure can use it as a tool to listen to music.

Vinyl Record

You might or might not be familiar with vintage vinyl albums in the current digital era. They do appear to be resurging. Or perhaps you’re a die-hard vinyl record collector who has albums on every shelf and wall in your home.

Whichever way you tend, you could or might not fully comprehend how vinyl records operate. It can certainly be a little mysterious. Even if it is a mystery created by humans, it is still a mystery. What about sound waves? So they can be played back, were they etched and recorded? This is what kind of voodoo?

Relax. Friends, this is not voodoo, just the significant changes and advancements that have been made in technology over time.

To put it simply, a vinyl record spins on a record player as the stylus travels between the grooves of the record. The record arm is equipped with a stylus, which is manufactured of an industrial gemstone (sometimes a diamond).

The stylus “reads” the grooves on the record by generating an electric signal and transfers the signal via the cartridge out to the amplifier. Please be aware that some record player cartridges employ magnets and some use piezoelectricity, although they all ultimately send the same signal to the amplifier.


If you are not familiar with CDs, then I don’t know what to say. If you haven’t listened to your favorite CDs in your car while driving, then you don’t know what adrenaline really feels like. That’s what I and my friends used to do when we were younger. Don’t get me wrong, we still are young, but now there is something called Bluetooth, so we take advantage of it.

Sound Beaming

Noveto Systems has developed “Sound beaming,” a cutting-edge audio technology. You can listen to music without using conventional speakers or headphones thanks to sound beaming technology.

This gadget sends audio through ultrasonic waves and surrounds the user’s ears with sound. As a result, the audio is audible solely to the user and is not disruptive to others.

Using sound beams and being a relatively new technology, sound beaming hasn’t really taken off yet.

Any ordinary audio system, however, cannot compare to the convenience this device offers. You can listen to music unbothered without wearing earphones around. However, only the user will be able to hear the music.

Final Words

Now you know that it is not the end of the world if you don’t have headphones or if your headphones are broken, you can still enjoy your favorite playlist and have an amazing listening experience through the ways I have mentioned above. 

Vinyl Records might be a bit of an expensive option if you are on a budget, but if you aren’t, I say go for it. The most practical way would be a speaker that you can pair with your phone or computer and have a great time listening to your favorite music. 

I’m actually glad I wrote this article, and you can thank me later!
