At work and at home, I frequently get distracted by noises.  At work, it’s the cackling hens I’ve talked about and at home it would be the TV from another room for example.  I dropped $100 on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones from audio-technica and I’m in love with them.  They reduce probably half of the ambient noise around you and add a little music on top of that and you can hardly hear those distractions.  When I need to really concentrate, these guys have been my saving grace.  I’ve considered using them when I get a bad migraine too since you don’t have to be connected to a music source – you can just wear them.


I'm a 20-something full time geek, part time student and photographer with a life partner, dog, house, and the two cars. I also have an ice pick in my left temple every day.
