by Mike Hunter

Work environments are enhanced by great design and technology to improve productivity. Today, sounds are an added benefit to the office experience or to the ear buds. Here are our picks for the best options to getting those great tunes to do their thing:

Apple-MusicApple Music

Apple Music is, to quote the company, “All the ways you love music. All in one place.”

So … in non-marketing lingo, Apple is attempting to put together a service that combines the user’s purchased music library and ripped tracks with the power of its Apple Music streaming catalog. $9.99 per month

Users can explore this vast trove of music to their heart’s content by just dropping the name of a favorite song, artist or genre into Pandora and letting the Music Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings — new and old, well known and completely obscure — to find songs with interesting musical similarities. $4.99 per month



There are millions of tracks on Spotify, so the right music is always at one’s fingertips. Users can choose for themselves or let Spotify surprise them. Users can also browse through the music collections of friends, artists and celebrities, or create a radio station and just sit back. $9.99 per month
