How many hours a day do you listen to music?

I am fortunate (domestically and professionally) in that I am able listen to music all day long and most days I do.  What about you?  How many hours a day, on average, do you intentionally listen?

3 to 4 hours a day. I'm retired.

I work at home on a computer, so I can usually get in around 6 hours of music each day.

I'm on long term disability, so depends on pain I'm in, but between 4-10 hours a day.

I'm working from home now as well, so 5-10 hours a day depending on how many meetings I have.

One cool thing about Roon is that it tracks all that:

Roon tells me about 30 hours a week.  Most of it not focused listening.  Often music playing while I'm working/researching/searching on the computer.

i think the real question is 'how much do you get to actively listen to music?' I'm lucky enough to office from home and have music on 3-4hrs per day through the Encores on my desk. However, listening to my main system with the lights low and few other distractions - not so much. A few nights/week for a few hours probably totals 10hrs/week.

As far as active listening, I probably average 4-5 hours per week.  That should increase quite a bit when I retire in a few years.

Another retiree, so 4-8 on average, but I can sneak in a 10-12 day a few times a month when my wife is working late.

Not as much as I would like.   Most of my time spent in front of my hi-fi speakers is while watching movies or serials (Book of Boba Fett, Peacemaker, Star Trek Discovery/Picard, etc.), although they do have great music at times.   :)

I'm also learning the hard way that my audio CD library is sorely lacking.   I ripped a few dozen of them to FLAC thinking they'd be close to HDA, but sadly not.   I didn't realize how big that difference was until I compared John Williams' Star Wars theme to an HDA version.  Wow!   Now I'm looking into HDA services.   ACD is definitely obsolete.

While we was on lockdown I was getting 8+ hours a day, now we are back at work probably 5+ hours as I still get to use my headphones at work.

Music is on almost all of my awake hours. In one form or another.

Maybe an hour or two during the week, an hour or two longer on the weekends.

I do not listen to music while doing another activity, or as background music. Almost all of my listening is done as my primary activity. So, I only listen when I have time to give it my full attention.

Except when doing research on YouTube, looking for new bands, composers, artists, etc.
