Does an iPod Help You Concentrate?

Emily claims it does. Others think so, too. (Scroll down for some interesting discussion about hyper-focusing and ADHD.)

For me, my iPod is all kinds of fantastical and I like to listen to it while I'm working or surfing the net and I'll admit that when I have my headphones on, I'm tuned in not on what's coming through my ears but what's in front of me. So, yes, maybe it's true. But then, sometimes it's just nice to listen to music while at a task and that pleasantness might be mistaken for concentration. Work goes better when it's pleasurable.
