I am listening to music basically all the time. But I am not a big fan of using headphones while sitting at a table with other people. I understand that it can be helpful at live games but Im alittle oldschool and think its disrespectful.

Depends how high the demand is. If i'm 1 tabling I find music helps to keep me engaged, if i'm 4-6 tabling then I need silence so I can focus fully.

Music helps keep me in a good mood (or to control my mood) during long grinds.

For the best focus stuff check this out https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM0YvsRfYfsniGAhjvYFOSA

You'll find what you want there, promise :)

I've noticed that music changes the rhythm of the game sometimes.

Live... If the table is quite, however if we have a chatty cathy then I will listen for tells. Sometimes I'll have my earphones in and off or really low so I can hear the conversation and take down mental notes on various players and the hands they played.

When I play for a long time to regain concentration (usually at play in the tournament) has to include music! This is for me the most neutral way to get back in the game!

No I do not listen to music because it detracts from the game.

Online always. Every time i play poker online i have music on. No exemption. Live i never do it. Its more fun and easier to read someone when you speak with them at the table.

I listen to music during the tournament to be calm
sometimes some players get on your nerves music distracts from them

For me personally, I don't have music. I need to focus during gameplay.

Of course, it depends on your mood. Usually music helps me focus. I prefer classical music.

playing online I listen to music relaxes me, in a matter of focusing it does not affect me at all, neither benefits me nor affects me:jd4::jd4::jd4::jd4:

When I'm playing online I try do another thing between hands to reduce the mental fatigue. But most of times i'm not listening music.

I used to play poker and listen to music, but then I realized that it distracted me from the game and did not allow me to concentrate. So I prefer playing poker in silence.

I like to play music while playing online. It just makes me more patient listening to music than when I am not.
