Music to program

With the rise of the open space, a headset is mandatory for anyone who wants to focus on something. Some famous people talk about having private office for developpers, but hey, if you're not there, then you need some sort of noise control.

A solution is to wear a noise protector gear like the one workers use.
nice headset

Personally I prefer listening to music, also because even good noise protector don't provide full silence.
So below is my list of stuff I listen.

And for the actual hardware, I'm using the Sennheiser PXC 310BT:

Apparently the sound is not the greatest, though I can't tell. The killer feature is the bluetooth. I can wear them the whole day, and still be in my bubble. Pretty happy with them ^^

So here are my main sources when it comes to block coworkers noises and focus. It's not very social, but if you want to get stuff done, it's a good way.
