    That being said, I like silence when doing BLD, but I normally listen to music when speedsolving.
    Sorry, I was on my phone and it doesn't show some stuff.
    I live in Canada, I literally have to warm up before I cube :)

    I can't deal with complete silence, I need some kind of background noise. But if I do listen to music, it can't be something that has a lot going on. Sunn O))) is good for blindsolving, haha.

    I become so pissed off if I hear anything while doing BLD. Sometimes tithe point where I just yell, "Shut the **** up!", end the silence happens for 5 or so minutes.

    If speed solving I love listening to metal.
    I <3 one of you on here.

    Under ideal conditions, I would love complete silence so I don't have to use earmuffs. The reason is because I can hear my heartbeat when I wear earmuffs. I never used ear plugs though, but that's because I only do 3BLD as of now.

    It occurred to me that I should mention: Best album title for BLD solvers: Dream Theater's old album Images and Words. (I blew the dust off it and listened to it this weekend on the way to Hillsdale.) I did some 3x3x3 BLD practice while listening to it a few years ago; it was good distraction practice.

    I don't think I could do it. The keyboard solo in Take The Time would make me start to bob my head and put the cube down.

    I like listening to music for regular speedsolving, but I prefer silence for BLD.

    I do listen to music, calm and tranquil ones. Though that I have to make sure its on repeat and volume is in 'intermediate' level, loud enough to cover background sound, and soft enough for me to concentrate. :P

    Silence for BLD is best for me
    Music for speedsolving is fun, I wish we were allowed to listen to music in comps

    i agree it would be awesome.
    but i suppose it depends what type of music you are listening to.
