For anyone with kids, both options sound highly appealing.

Unpopular opinion: most people use punctuation incorrectly.
Sometimes you don't need to hear your officemate's conference call while you try to code, though.
It depends upon the job I think. It can make doing mindless tasks infinitely more enjoyable, even on a mediocre setup for me. Obviously YMMV.
@supertransformingdhruv Especially when the officemate insists on using speaker phone!!!
@Skyline @Cspirou You guys should see my bathroom rig.
@zerodeefex - i totally admit to using what punctuation feels right
@Skyline - I got kids. I actually listen to speakers more because of them. When it's headphones I can't hear one of them murdering the other.
Bathroom time is used to reflect on my poor choices in life
I agree, both are fine, I dont see the reason for the comparison though :P
@SoupRKnowva - just feel like both use the medium as a distraction rather than treating music/literature the focus it deserves.
I mean to each their own, but still
I guess that depends, with reading in the bathroom, what are you distracting yourself from? youre just sitting there, reading seems reasonable. with music at work I can agree, it depends on your usage, for me I cant listen to music with alot of what I do, but sometimes I do something relatively mindless and listen to music as the main event
True story - I had a friend in high school that took War & Peace to the bathroom with him and didn't leave until 4 hours later
