I experience this very often to the point that it has become annoying. However I think I may have a theory.
The song in which this most occurs for me is "Bangarang" by Skrillex.
If I listen to it through speakers, usually it is lightning fast. (At least 20-30% faster). Pitch does not change, sounds fit equally as well as normal. However, if I listen to it through my producer headphones, it slows down greatly. If I listen to it through in-ear headphones, it's even slower. So, being the curious **** that I am, I started to experiment with it. I found that if I have my producer headphones over my ears, it is, again, slow. However if I put them around my neck, and crank the volume a bit, it gets faster. So I came to a conclusion that, the further away the speakers are from your ears, the faster the song goes, or appears to go.
But why is this?
Well, my theory is that sound waves become progressively faster when they have reflected off of more surfaces. And I think that if a sound is playing through a speaker, it's coming from many different surfaces into your ears all at the same time. If it's through headphones, then it is going straight into your ears. Making the sound appear to go by slower. This is just a theory, and may not apply to all people. But it has been made true in most cases I've experienced.
Glad to see I'm not the only one. Well, not with the time going faster part but I do experience the same thing, for example songs seem to slow down for me when I'm running and appear to be faster when I'm just passing the time. I'm curious about this, too because no one I asked has an answer.
Haven't experience it but I think this is just psychological
Weird. I cant say I have ever experienced this, but I know sound effects me in other weird ways, like a person with a really soft voice makes me relax instantly. I read up on it and its all psychological. I bet its a similar thing with this.
The same, I also have never had this thing happen to me. Consider mentioning that to your doctor next time you visit him.

But to actually answer your question, this happens to me all the time! I'm still trying to figure out whats going on " src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" /> but I'm sure its somewhat normal @appleoutsider
