    I use headphones all the time. Yesterday I commented that, I was'nt being antisocial just needed some space and maybe the office should think of having pipped music... Boom! The response was interesting; a fear of disagreement on what to play and personal preference in genre across the team coming up as a top concern...I would'nt really care as long as it was decent music - 'define decent' back to headphones!
