Noise blocking headphones

In the past few years, more people than ever have joined a way of life already known to freelance translators, that of those who work from home. Many of us were already familiar with the challenges of trying to stay productive in our not-so-quiet home office or a busy coffee shop. Although we cannot stop your relatives from interrupting you when you are on the zone, or make the baristas less strict about the time of Wi-Fi connection allowed with a single cup of coffee, we know of a good way to avoid distractions, help you focus and block the noise around you.

Our favorite resource for environmental noise blocking is This site was created by Stéphane Pigeon and boasts an astonishing variety of soundscapes that have other applications apart from noise blocking, such as tinnitus relief, relaxation, or an atmospheric addition to a role-playing game. One can become a patron in exchange for a small donation, but the free options already offer exceptional customization features. A mobile app is also available, although the web version is more complete and, in our opinion, more practical to use.

But this resource is not only useful for work-from-home pros or digital nomads. Those who had to return to the office and miss the peace and quiet of their previous solitude can also use’s resources to block noise. You won’t be able to stop office gossip, but at least you won’t have to hear it.
