Now I am sure we all know what happens why you buy the cheapo versions
of manufactured goods. Fork out a bit, for the big fat ones, with
rubber rims (like accoustic couplers for your ears).

I recently found, one way to disperse local chav kids, or get them to
turn off fat car stereo's in the street, is to blast out classical
baroche as loud as my speakers will handle. I am more of a fan of
other styles, although I can deal with classical, however, the chavs
really do go away. Then I go back to listening to soma fm.

Maybe such tactics might work in the office...
