Please...please... If want to listen to music & play, do it like Garfield! I've seen ppl listening to songs by using the phone speaker! F&$!#% irritating. It's very common to see at Mandai Executive range.

ok, so there is two ways to look at it...

1) listen to music to help concentrate

2) listen to music to create distractions.... so have to learn to block out the distractions...

Which is it?

I think #2 but also helps with tempo...

No thanks. My FT Tour works very well, esp in M'sia.

Anyway, I may be in the minority but I think those Sunnies of urs are still pretty ok.



But back to topic. I did try listening to music via earphones on my iPhone but the wires sometimes got in the way so I stopped doing it.
