Headphones in the Workplace

An HBR article on the effect of wearing headphones in the Workplace.   Largely, a view that suggests that the inability to capture random and casual information can inhibit creativity.  Of course if you are not at the office,  or there is no office, then this does not matter as much.   A few experiences I had where I gathered real insight at the 'coffee cart' may not have happened if I had been wearing headphones.    It may well depend on the kind of work you do, focused,  detailed work will be made more efficient by screening out the noise.
