but playing music that everyone can hear is a choice, and one that can be avoided.
And in my case a choice I made with my colleagues...
A colleague that I shared an office with used to almost shout "where's that music!?" if I wasn't playing any.
The colleague I now share an office with also very much dislikes the new 'no music'-rule and he even suggested he bring something from home that allows us to both listen to my music while both wearing headphones.
Really, I DID actually discuss the whole playing music thing with my colleagues and they DO actually appreciate my music.

You're like the third guy here who is blaming me for all the annoying people everywhere that play loud and distracting music at the office without thinking about their colleagues. I am not that guy!

If the new guy had just asked me if I would turn off the music I would have, but when I asked him about it he was okay with it.

Your idea that headphones are not a solution because you're often on the phone doesn't float with me. If the phone rings, you just take off the headphones and pick up, and put them back on when you're done. I had a coworker who did that all day, and it didn't kill him, and he didn't suffer from any repetitive strain injury.
I find the music that is pumped directly into my ears discomforting. Headphones shut you off of your surroundings, which is annoying for me and for my colleagues who try to communicate with me. Putting them on and off and on and off all day is annoying too.
Just like some people prefer absolute silence, I prefer not wearing headphones. And I probably prefer silence over headphones. Or maybe I'll have to get used to headphones. Time will tell.
It's an OO world.
