The 'How Are You Listening to Music' graphic examines the habits of music listeners today. Since we have moved on (mostly) from records and CDs and entered the digital era, the way that we listen to music has dramatically changed for most people. Now iTunes, Amazon and Spotify have become hugely influential in the music world as they offer both free and paid downloads of music straight to your computer.

Downloadable books, TV, movies and music have changed the way that consumers are consuming entertainment. It is faster, more immediate and available right when they want it.

70 percent of respondents answered that they pay for music, while a lower 60 percent admitted to downloading free music. Pandora, Spotify and Last.fm have dominated the social music scene -- offering free listens and the ability to connect fans.
