I personally prefer silence
... or ...
white noise or ...
(if I'm in a really musical listening mood) trance music so that it creates a great background sound but one I won't focus on (foreground).
Other possible sounds are Eckhart Tolle audios but I don't do that often when coding/working.
I find that 99% of the time when I encounter a problem to solve, I prefer silence. That being said, I would love to hear what others prefer to get some different perspectives.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
