Referred to as the Brilliant Sound Survey, a comprehensive body of data derived from an online questionnaire highlights much of what many music-lovers believe to be true. Conducted by home audio company Sonos and several research partners, the survey incorporated insights from 12,000 people in 12 countries. Some of the stats astound: 74% of participants said listening to music helped them reduce stress, 58% believe music boosts their mood at work, and 40% admit that music has made them cry unexpectedly. Additionally, some 70% say that people with “good” music taste are more attractive. This information and much more can found at the Sonos blog.
