Personally i don't unless there's a P.A. set up but this is 'cos i can't stand in ear headphones.

Though everyone always wants a soundtrack to life like in the movies.

I listen to music 9 times out of 10 - I find it's the easiest way to get hyped or relax and I had a bad experience with Steve Birkbeck commentating once and I landed upside-down cause I was laughing haha so it also blocks everyone else out while you are riding.
On top of that, I guess it helps me to not think about what I'm doing so much which helps me ride better (because I'm busy singing along).

Generally have music in one ear at 50% volume, so I can still hear the sounds my board is making! Does help my concentration and determination to get back up if I fall.

Agree with this 100%, I'm amazed at the number of snowboarders who ride with headphones with hundreds of people on the same mountain. Seems risky to me regardless of boardtype, especially given that ride in traffic alot.
