Earbuds have come a long way in comfort in the past few years but for many people, having buds in for long periods of time can become very uncomfortable. This fatigue can be even more problematic if you work from home or need music to help with your concentration. An old-school Hi-Fi stereo system is one solution but you give up a lot of convenience and portability. A neckband speaker allows you to have a personal listening device without leaving uncomfortable earbuds in your head.

Also, since you don't have something crammed in your ear canal, you can hear what's going on in your home whether you're making sure the kids aren't fighting or waiting for someone to arrive at the door. Not to mention the potential health risks of earbuds.
