The continued popularity of open-plan offices has the unwanted side effect of making it difficult to concentrate (note that management invariably have their own, separate office).2

A good pair of headphones can make your work day much more productive by shutting out all the noise and distractions around you.

A cheap pair of ear buds won't cut it.

In fact, your neighbors will be put off their own work as they'll be able to hear your music.
