Your chain + music for studying

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Just wanted to hear what headphones, sources, and music people use for studying or working quietly.

 

Right now I use a rockbox'd Ipod classic going into a fiio e12 mont blanc and into my ATH M50S when I'm in the library. However, I find the ATH M50S clamps a little too tightly, so I'm moving to the dt 770 (I have a T90 and find beyers very comfortable).

 

I like listening to any classical with a cello or low-key electronic or indie music.

 

Post pictures if you want!

Anything + anything :). One album did pop to mind though, Kid A by Radiohead.

I love Kid A for studying. King of Limbs is another Radiohead album I can study to.

Kid A is a great album. Although it took some time for me to get used to it, compared to Radioheads former albums.

 

When it comes to studying I'm an old fashioned guy. When I study, I don't listen to music. I don't need entertainment. I just study :beyersmile:

Any music without singing, pretty much - I find it's the singing that disrupts my concentration.

I also like listening to music with which I'm familiar - so I don't suddenly find my interest diverted

by something new, different, and possibly terrific as well.

Pretty much exactly how I am.

I find the best music for working where I need to be able to concentrate on reading things is instrumental, my favorite being soundtracks. Hans Zimmer in particular is fantastic. Then instrumental Jazz like Dave Brubeck or Miles Davis is good as long as the songs aren't too busy.

Moby

And yeah, rediscovering Kid A with better headphones is awesome.

I agree that the music has to be familiar or it will distract me. I also find that I can't listen with my best set of cans because the music demands too much attention.
