Sixty per cent of young adults say remembering their headphones is more important than their wallets.
A survey by electronics brand OPPO found that people listening to music on their headphones is what helps them work, shop, workout and even declare love. 72 percent say it evokes our most powerful memories.
The survey also found that over half of 18 to 25-year-olds use listening devices at work. Four-in-ten say they would struggle to get any work done without their earphones. The younger generation are most likely to resort to music to drown out the sound of colleagues at work.
2 in 5 have one artist they listen to on repeat when getting over a heartbreak while half say they have their 'own anthem' – a song that inspires them
But it’s fair to say that we’re not always using music as a force for good as a quarter said they play music they know will annoy their partner when they’ve fallen out.
On average, young adults listen to over nine hours of music every day. The findings demonstrate how music powers our everyday life.
