In the dark/at night, in bed, with headphones, eyes closed.
For me the ultimate way to listen to all ambient/atmospheric electronic music. It adds so much more to the experience than just 'casual listening' (eyes open / no headphones / while doing something else).
The only true test to determine how much I really like the music. My all-time favorites in electronic music all came to be after listening sessions in bed.
At the risk of sounding arrogant, but I have a hard time taking people's opinions on ambient serious, if they never listen to ambient like that. If there's one genre in music that just asks to be listened to this way, it's ambient.
I agree with you with 100%
It is only in night in bed with headphones I can fully sink into the music and shield of the outer world completely.
I also always use an "Mindfold" (can be bought from steveroach.com)
Both Steve Roach, robert rich and Asianova probably give me the most deepest listening experience...
