perhaps headphones
I have a €228 Sony headphone, best of the best I'm told by various sources on the internet.
The sound quality is indeed superior, but it can give me a splitting headache.
I have a lot of headaches, especially in weekends, but the headphone-headache is unique in that it feels like my skull is going to shatter.
So I prefer regular speakers.

More expensive != better quality.
You often pay for the brand and such, although a much more expensive set is probably better than a cheaper set.
That said, I prefer my €30 Creative over my €100 Bose, the Creative really is surprisingly good.
It beats listening to my laptop and my phone and at a certain point I can't hear the difference anymore anyway.
Of course the €30 set lacks some depth and range, especially a subwoofer, which it doesn't have, but good enough for the office.
Also, good speakers can only make good music sound better, it won't make bad music sound good and it won't do much if your sound files are of low quality (e.g. a 128 kbit MP3 file).
Besides, it's only for some background music at work, not like I'm hosting a music event Wink | ;)

May I inquire what kind of music you prefer during work Maybe Mozart is a good idea Isn't he recommended for those yet to be born Maybe JS Bach Bach is somewhat intellectual I can't imagine work during a Rolling Stones concert
Mozart not really, Bach sometimes.
I like classical music, but the constantly changing dynamics can make me pretty crazy... One moment I can't hear the pianissimo and another moment my ears are bleeding from the fortissimo!
So for those moments when I have ambient sounds or I can't put the volume up, like in the car, when I go to sleep, or in the office, I prefer something a bit more constant, like pretty much anything else.
If you've ever read the Sound of the Week[^] you'd know what I listen to, it goes from black and death metal to dance and trance to classical Smile | :)
