I find that when I am on the computer, I put on some music, and after a little while, I just have to turn it off. My head starts hurting and I get annoyed at sound going on around me. My cell phone battery is low, and it beeped at me, and it made me angry for a minute. It's odd being a musician, and not being able to handle listening to music. In the car, I am fine, most of the time, but even then I get fed up with hearing stuff. I tend to listen to talk radio a lot because music is generally too much sound for me sometimes (and my CD rotation is a bit small right now). But I can go to concerts, play guitar/bass no problem.
