A sort of complete silence then? We can't have that anyway because of (business) phone calls.
My (not new) collegue takes all incoming phone calls and our biggest customer calls directly to me.
Another colleague takes all phone calls from our second biggest customer (usually redirected from the first colleague).
On busy days it's a cacophony of ringing phones and people calling Frown | :(

I like a little background noise, like the music I was playing, to help me focus. In complete silence I hear to many distractions, like the ticking of a clock, the typing of my colleagues, coughs, footsteps, cars from the street... Colleagues talking on the phone is not what helps me focus though.

We moved to a new building and we're now all in one (big) office. It didn't get any quieter.
Actually I think my music should be the new guys least of his problems Wink | ;)
It's an OO world.
