Let's say I am listening to Beatles (already for two hours, and still..), and somebody calls me..

Can I say "I'm listening to Beatles for 2 hours already", or is it more correct if I say "I have been listening to Beatles for 2 hours already."

I want to make it clear, that I am listening to them right now, not only that I have been listening to them only until now.

Please help me with this one, I'm very confused if my first example can be used or not.
