  • Sounds like what you want is a pair of noise-cancellation headphones. They tend to run about $100, and you can use them to get something approximating near absolute quiet, or use them as a pair of headphones to hear only music (and none of the background noise).

    I think Bose makes a pair. Should be able to find them in any decent stereo store (or high-end yuppie shop; they also work well on airplanes).

    Be careful that you don't make your work area too quiet. I was born with tinnitus, so I hear a constant ringing in the ears if the room is too quiet. I find that I need some form of light background noise to distract from the ringing. But too much noise is even more of a distraction. (I haven't heard ringing all day; now that I mentioned it, I'll probably hear it for the rest of the afternoon...oh well.)
