Background noise is so '06.
During the day at TN, the office can get pretty loud. With so many project and happenings around TN development I have to keep up with, a good pair of earphones to hecklers down. These earphones have been my bestfriend, helping to keep focus and working on the latest goodies set to grace the pages of ThisNext. A cool little feature is the small button of the side of the volume/bass boaster control. With a press it lower the volume of your music to levels that allow you to hear someone speaking to you. Would have been a bluetooth version, but sometimes you need a cord to keep you grounded.
