Is listening to music while you're working okay?

I like to listen to music while I'm doing homework, but my parents both think that this is distracting, unhealthy, and stops me from completing my work. However, I keep my grades high (5 of my subjects are above a 95%, while one grade is at an 88%) and I never have a problem with getting my work on. They say I am too obsessed with music and I need to stop listening to my ipod while I'm doing my homework. I am all for respecting my parents wishes, but I do not think that they are being reasonable. Does anyone have any advice about what I can do to fix this problem? I have thought about talking to them but I don't think they will listen... Any ideas would be nice, as well as your own opinions about whether or not it is appropriate to listen to music while doing your work.
