    Well, for whatever reason all the people in my office have decided that they must have the absolutely most noisy keyboards around, and I find the constant striking of said noisy keys be incredibly irritating and distracting.....

    Anyway, I wanted to see if anyone had advice on how best to cancel out this noise, has anyone used noise-cancelling headsets in the office? Are they any good?

    I say you need to get a Model M IBM keyboard so you can make more noise than them.

    You can't have been there long! Like the noise of children you soon learn to ignore it!

    I have a old BT (British Telecom!) Unix keyboard that has a little speaker inside that actually beeps when you press a key...... I guess you could get your own back on them :p

    Any decent pair of in-ear headphones or cans playing music (even softly) should drown out a keyboard, but that depends on if your work allows it.

    As a Das Keyboard user at work, I can attest that you need to deal.
