I put headphones in when I don't want to be interrupted and trying to concentrate. The thing is that I dont have any music on my phone/pc, I just do it to block noise and stop my work neighbour (not in any way involved in my team) from chatting to me!

I use them when I need to concentrate. I tell my office mate I am putting them in and to give me a tap on the shoulder if she needs anything. Early next year we are going to a massive open plan office and I think they will be essential then or I won't get any work done.

We house 2 call centres in the same space, it's so noisy.

I think it depends on the role and workplace environment.
I don't think they're any good for those who need to be regularly approached by others. If it's a job where you kind of just knuckle down and get in the zone without having to deal with people much - okay.
OP, I can see why you want to wear the headphones! Call centres are buzzing with distraction (I've worked a desk job in a call centre before myself).

DH wears them all the time. He works in the IT department in an open plan corporate office. He wears them for a variety of reasons.
1. To listen to music
2. To block out the noise
3. To give off that "***** off and leave me alone vibe".
All IT requests are supposed to be logged through a phone call to the help desk, but many people think that doesn't apply to them, so they wander down and harass the IT guys. They assume everyone in IT does the same job, but they don't. DH is the systems administrator/network engineer, so he doesn't deal with the day to day jobs like the printer has run out of toner, my computer has frozen kind of jobs. By wearing headphones (sometimes accompanied by a post it note stuck to the ear saying "leave me alone" lol) it sort of stops all the interruptions and lets him actually do his work. He is the first person the come across as they walk in, so he's always the first to get harassed. Plus his bosses aren't even based in Brisbane so that side of things is a non issue.

I wore them in my last job, I was doing lots of data entry and found I was way more productive when I had my groove on It depend on the job of course, but I don't find them unprofessional if you aren't dealing with people much.
