It depends on the music, for me instrumental music in low volume helps me focus better most because it isolates me from other background noises that would annoy me.

When I want to really listen to music, the volume is way different.

Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
