I've got a nice iPod dock under my plastic delta sink on a simple wooden board, the display lights are set to off, and I use a stack of exposed paper to block my iPhone screen when docked. I use the remote to change tracks. I listen to a pretty varied mix of rock, classic rock, alternative, folk, and indie. Audio books sometimes but often times I have to go rewind as I get caught up with the motions of the print. Music helps a lot, much better than silence and the enlarger clicking on, or the drone of a fan. Keeps you going too especially when printing until sunrise.
