Just don't take them off ... ever.
You're just trying to get some work done, but all around you, it's talk-talk-friggin-talk. 'You know what? I don't care about who is screwing whom in this office, so why doesn't everyone just shut the hell up!' you do not say. Instead, you put on your WeSC Tambourine Headphones, and suddenly, you don't have to deal with anyone anymore.
