I have a guy who listens to his music not "loud" but I can make out the words. He listens to one of those "Country Hits" stations, and they play some Carrie Underwood song "Blown Awayyyyyyyyyyy" song at least 7 times per day, and I hear it every time.
Same guy, our office is very quiet. Usually all you can hear is keyboards and mice clicking away. When he answers his phone he talks at like an 11. I'm like, "I'm pretty sure these phones (new in the last 2 years) work pretty well."
Ok, I just think it to myself. Seriously, it's like he's yelling into the phone. There's no background noise, and I talk to the same people at just above a whisper, they hear me fine.
