The right mix of music can go a long way towards improving your productivity levels. Here are the best products and services to bring music to your ears.

Bose headphones

Best headphones for private listening

If you work in an office with other people, you may not have the luxury of being able to ‘rock out’ to your own music selection. Even if you do have that luxury, sticking the headphones on is always a good ‘do not disturb’ indicator for other colleagues.

The best speakers for the office    

If your office encourages background music, why not make the most of it? The Sonos Play:5 (RRP $599) is an excellent, compact speaker for the office, boasting an impressive, richly-detailed sound that’s loud enough to fill a small office. Since the music queuing feature works similar to a jukebox, co-workers can all add music to play using the Sonos desktop or mobile software, and these tracks are added to the end of the playlist. 

The Sonos Play:5 also supports most online music streaming services, including Spotify, Rdio, Pandora and MOG, and if you have two Play:5s, you can set up them up as left and right speakers for proper stereo sound.
