Do you listen to music / audio when working (or do you sit in silence)?

Would love to see what people listen to (or don't). I've always listened to lo-fi music when working and it actually makes me somewhat productive but I'm curious to see what others do 😊

I rely on music a lot while doing my work. I prefer concentration music, as it keeps me focused.

@tanoy27 What is concentration music out of curiosity?

@richardfliu Oops, my bad. I should have been more specific while replying to your question. Concentration music is binaural beats; it helps you to focus and concentrate in your work for long hours. Let me share a sample with you, it will give you a better idea - Link -

I listen to lo-fi as well. I like having some background noise but only a little!
Rachit Nigam
I too listen to lo-fi music, it brings a sense of concentration and reduces the work triggered stress sometimes.

Depends. If it is something that I need to concentrate I prefer not but if its a routine work it is boring without music

@begum_bayram That's true - sometimes when I need to focus I turn off the music just to focus up for that short amount of time :)
Rain sounds do the trick for me. I use the 'Relax Rain' app which has 37 variants :)

@skipvs I've used this before! Haha I actually tried the ambient New York Rain sounds one where a guy walks around New York for 2 hours. That was pretty nice as well :)

I also listen to lofi music! It keeps me focused for some reason, seems to always do the trick!
Sometimes I listen to Music and other times audio books I have already listened to. I don't like sitting in silence. I end up getting bored and feeling drowsy.

Only when there is a lot of distracting noise otherwise I am super proactive when there is a small background noise :) Check this fake office background noise site it's great !

No music works best for me. Wish music I get distracted and start singing haha

I listen to lo-fi a lot while working. Immediately improves my mood and grants me the drive to finish my work.

If it's deep work, I listen to music that is repetitive like House. Can't have words or lyrics though - they are distracting.

I too listen to Binaural Beats. Helps me concentrate on my work and also relieves stress.

I love listening to LoFi beats while working; it makes me productive. It gives me this concentration and helps me relax during my uptime. I'd love to explore other options as well. Can anyone give me recommendations other than LoFi?
