Recently I discovered a very good music source for me to concentrate at work. It’s called “Elmnts.“ Elmnts is a Chrome extension that provides 6 different sounds
- Coffee Shop
Once you download it, you can play the music even offline. My current favorite is listening to forest and water sounds.
There is another product, “Noizio” that is similar to Elmnts. Noizio is a free Mac software that provides 8 sounds:
- Coffee shop
- Thunder storm
- Forest (day time)
- Forest (night time)
I think Noizio is better because it has more sound options, but basically both Noizio and Elmnts can fulfill my needs well.
Before Noizio and Elmnts, I alternated between Pandora’s “Relaxing station” and Spotify’s “music for coder.” However, after going through different kinds of background music, I have to say that I prefer natural sounds.
What kind of music do you listen to while you work? Please share!
