Headphone privacy

“It’s not just that headphones carve privacy out of public spaces. It is also that music causes us to relax and reflect and pause. The outcome of relaxation, reflection, and pausing won’t be captured in minute-to-minute productivity metrics. In moments of extreme focus, our attention beams outward, toward the problem, rather than inward, toward the insights.”

Derek Thompson, The Atlantic

In this open office work culture, headphones are a necessity. But the right type of music can make you even more productive.
