Does music help you or does it distract you from coding?
It mostly distracts me, but sometimes helps me when I'm doing simple UI work etc. Or when I want to block normal people (even quietly) sitting or waddling around.

    I have music on most of the time.
    It does help me concentrate sometimes, but only with music I know well.

    And there is a motorcycle bar 2 buildings over, so sometimes I need to drown out the sound of the FUCKING LOUD motorcycles. I keep wondering why the law doesn't count it as sound polution

    Yea, I kinda need music to code.
    Especially in my office, where people are always walking around, talking and all that stuff.
    Let's me concentrate better with music on.

    And i honestly hate it when it's too quiet around me (especially when coding at home)

    This. I use the music just like you.
    If i need more concentration I turn off the music. And also is good to avoid some people!!

    Need the music for coding like air to breathe.

    Friend is having TV running when working. He says he needs that to concentrate.

    Depends on the mood, but generally speaking musing helps me zone out and keep working (especially at night)

    I already asked myself why you would comment on your own comment 🤦

    without music (or something similar) I get distracted by my own random thoughts

    I play something not as loud (just to have the headset on because people tend to not bother as much) and not something I know that can cause a distraction. Seems to work wonders for me

    Headphones (noise-cancelling) with videogame soundtracks are great, since these are made to not be a distraction. I can't stay focused really long if I don't listen to music.
