“Coming Alive” Through Headphones: Listening to Messages Via Headphones Vs. Speakers Increases Immersion, Presence, and Liking

We assess whether listening to media via headphones or via speakers changes listeners’ attitudes and perceptions of these auditory messages. Across several experiments, we demonstrate that relative to speakers, listening to messages via headphones: 1) increases immersion, 2) decreases perceived social distance of the speaker, and 3) enhances positive perceptions.
