Last year we shared the best sounds for getting work done with you and the science behind using them. Today we want to hear about whether not you use ambient sounds when you work.
What kind of ambient noise or music do you use to help you get work done? Is the hum of the server fans enough? Do you listen to ocean waves even though you’re in a cubicle in Kansas?

If you’ve never toyed with the idea of using ambient noise to help focus, definitely check out our full guide to doing so. It’s packed with online resources for downloading and listening to ambient tracks. If you’re already doing it, let’s hear about it in the comments. Alternately, if you don’t find listening to anything — music, ambient noise tracks, a fan in the corner — is helpful we want to hear about that too.
