I can point to one study that shows music is the best and one that shows music is worst. But back to the real world...

My problem is when I can understand the words, even if I don't understand the topic.

If it's just loud voices but I can't understand what they are saying (like in a mall's food court) I don't have a problem.

But if someone is talking normally 3 cubicles away and I can understand what they are saying, I'm doomed. It doesn't matter if they are talking about their dog's diarrhea, the latest discovery in Quantum's mechanics or what did Descartes really meant when he said "Cogito ergo sum".
