Open Office Spaces: Headphones are the new walls

Linked below is a good short read from the New York Times about the problems of open office spaces.  I'm in a cubicle farm at my current client site, and have to admit that I use headphones to make local discussions less distracting.

In my case, what I really need is better noise control between my workspace and the one directly in front of me (that is, through the cube wall).  I would like to experiment with the pink noise solution discussed in the article - I had not realized that the pink noise is matched to common human speech to mask discussions.
