(2) issues with music at work.

1st - if it is played over an office sound system, _everyone_ has to like
it. Otherwise the benefits would never overcome the negative feelings.
Plus, do you want your customers to know that the entire design team is
listening to Black Sabbath backwards while working away on an important
dead-line?
2nd - In a small office with partitions, and limited telephone access,
people who do not respond to requests to answer a phone message because they
are buried in a CD cut become targets for thrown objects.

Here's something for everyone on this thread.... An excerpt from an article
on Music and Brain Damage:

What the heck's wrong with music?

Only reason I can see to ban it is that you might not hear something else or you might distract
others. If you use a walkman and don't try to blast your eardrums out, what's the problem?

Where I work = no "unheadphoned" music; thus MP3's rule the world on my
machine (over 2GB worth as of this writing). I always have tunes playing if
I need to do some serious concentrating on drawings, but when I'm
programming I generally turn it off to keep my head clear and in the
groove.

Where a friend works the BOSS set up HIS stereo in the studio, with 3' tall
speakers; they listen to jazz & classical all day, but not that wimpy Yanni
dreck. It's the most laid-back office I've ever seen.

If there are headphones, I cannot see a problem.
