Does using your phone as your mp3 player drain the battery much quicker?

Does using your phone as your mp3 player drain the battery much quicker? I'd listen to around an hour of music on the way to work and back. Wondering if I should get a separate iPod.........

Plus, it depends on the phone. If the screen's off and you're just listening through earphones, you should be okay.

Uses much more if getting them from the cloud, if stored locally it's not a huge drain while the screen is off, but 2 hours a day would be noticeable.
