I think this one will be easy.

I speak but do not listen

I am round but not a circle

I am soft to your ears

I really like to sing

I have a friend that listens but does not speak

What am I?

I think:

Headphones and / or headsets

I speak but do not listen

You can listen to them but they don't listen to you

I am round but not a circle

Most headphones have round cups for the ears

I am soft to your ears

Well obviously the cups are soft to your ears or you'd never wear them (for long)

I really like to sing

Most people use them for music

I have a friend that listens but does not speak

Some headphones have a microphone and at least headsets do have a microphone

is it, given that you didn't expect it to last long:

mouth

I speak but do not listen

mouth speaks, but cannot hear, obviously

I am round but not a circle

mouth is round, but obviously is not a circle, just an opening on the face

I am soft to your ears

people "Like the sound of their own voice"

I really like to sing

a lot of people sing, and all sing with mouth

I have a friend that listens but does not speak

the face also houses the ears

You might be:

Earpods

I speak but do not listen

Earpods produce sound but do not listen like a mic does

I am round but not a circle

They are round

I am soft to your ears

Usually they are softened with soft materials

I really like to sing

People use them to listen to music

I have a friend that listens but does not speak

A microphone

Pretty sure you're a:

Robin bird

I speak but do not listen

To us, a bird is not listening

I am round but not a circle

Round robin

I am soft to your ears

A robin's song is sweet

I really like to sing

It seems all robins do is sing

I have a friend that listens but does not speak

Us, we listen but don't speak to the robin.
