Music: The Great Distraction?

Recently, I noticed more and more knowledge workers wearing headsets while at their desks. Not just earbuds, but noise-cancelling headsets, the kind you’d expect to see on an airplane (indeed, Bose invented the noise-cancelling headset over 20 years ago specifically for use by pilots).

While some people are simply using the active (or in some cases passive) noise-cancelling feature, most are listening to music.

What choice they make in music will unquestionably impact their productivity.
