Default Office Music?

Anyone stream music at their desk or in their office throughout their work day (NOT through headphones)? What stations or genres do you find acceptable to the broad majority? Obviously you can't put on NWA radio and let it play....but you also don't want Bette Midler's greatest hits to put you to sleep.
Sports Radio maybe? Or should I be THAT GUY and put on Holiday music mix?

Stream here but keep it to headphones. Office is noisy enough with boomer chat, gross chewing noises, and people that can't do anything without shouting on the phone.

I've never been more triggered at a post in GDD than this one.

I'm realizing I'm up and about more and more these days around the building. I don't want to keep putting headphones in and out, it gets old. I'd rather just have something playing in the background. My hallway is pretty quiet for the most part.

Headphones only, or close the office door and listen at a low volume. Nobody at work wants to listen to someone else's music.

I have my own office so I close the door and listen to what I want. Right now I'm listening to The Flatliners.

The question is, how far away from others are you.

We are in cube land and people 4 feet away feel it's ok to have conference calls on speakerphone, when the person talking is 10 feet away, so I hear it in stereo...........

I get where you're coming from, I'm in and out of my chair all the time and half the time I realize that I've been sitting there for a good while forgetting to put my headphones back on.

What about wireless headphones so getting up often doesn't matter? Never been in a professional enough setting to have this issue. Could see headphones in ears looking bad too

I have my own office, and it's in the middle of a hallway with 4 other offices. I wouldn't be blasting the music, so MAYBE the one guy next door would hear it a little, but it wouldn't be anything that would bother anyone.
I could definitely close my door and listen to anything I want, but I prefer my door open. The culture here is kind of a "bounce around" environment. People always popping their heads in, asking quick favors, etc.

An actual office with a door for the win!

I go through phases. Sometimes it's Def Leopard Radio, sometimes Credence Radio, sometimes 90's rap, etc.

Really just depends on my mood.

On Fridays I always play Party like a Rockstar first thing in the morning. I have an Altec Lansing PC sub and speakers and I BUMP that ****. Then I open the door to get the floor folks bobbin.

Yeah I interact too much when I walk out of my office to have earphones in...and the building is rather large so the music would go out of range as soon as I left my area.

Not a bad office if you ask me.

Kind of miss having a regular job with a sweet office and co-workers. Working from home means I've only got the dog to hang with.

1. I would LOVE that office. Cube farm ftl.
2. I see no issue with you playing music without headphones in your own office. If you can hear it outside that door, then it is too loud.

I have the biggest office in this "secret building," because they were intending on making it a work space of the future concept but instead I just have a giant office now.

There's a big empty office right behind me. Thinking about sneaking all my stuff in there while everyone is taking time off around Christmas

damn, I miss having an office!

We are trying that whole collaboration BS where it's one big open area with cool chairs and all that hip, bright *** furniture and all.
We have low wall cubes too, even the managers have desks out here with an optional office on the other side of the building.

That's why I like remote days. I get the best of both worlds.

Sweet office and people to socialize with as well as wake up 5 minutes before work in gym shorts days.
