Same, my day would be ruined if I forgot my headphones for a day

Silence for coding mainly, unless it's something simple.

I use noise-cancelling headphones even when in a quiet room, there is some psychological effect that makes me feel more comfortable with them on.

I prefer silence for coding and singing along for music. :)

Usually with music. Electronic. Must not contain vocals. Sometimes I will use mynoise.net (I'm listening to Black Hole right now).

Music on most of the times.
Buuuuuuut: One could question this. IMO it's like sitting on the toilet with or without your phone. It would probably be better without but most of the times...

Music because it is almost impossible to be in a room with 100% silence. If you want to get into your Zen coding mode then music is the way to go.

I prefer Irish folk music when coding. That way coding goes a lot faster.
