Does anybody else think coworkers look ridiculous walking around the office with giant noise cancelling headphones on? I understand wearing them on the road.. but around the office...😏

clearly you don't work in an open office environment.


I don't understand your emoji choice here.


They are a necessity for me. Open offices destroy my concentration. Noise cancelling headphones are a life saver.


People don't understand how noise-cancelling headphones work. They don't cancel out all sounds. Only consistent, repetitive sounds, like the A/C blowing.


Huh SPM1? definitely not wearing these in the car. Apart from not safe it's illegal.


Hahahaha what floor?

Depends on how noisy your office is, they can be hugely useful in an open office plan.

Though it's weird to walk around with them on. I usually take them off if I'm leaving my desk

Copywriter 1 my bose quietcomfort 35s cancel out most sounds pretty well. Even those that are not repetitive/background (not 100% of course). It's pretty amazing though.

Noise cancelling headphones on the road? That's not safe...

@SDP1 that's what OP wrote lol

Only way to survive in an open office

Ahhh. Yeah thought it was in response to mine. Makes way more sense now. Duh.
