Case 1)
I normally play really really loud Metal or watch American crime
dramas to drown out the chatterboxes in my office. I want to hear the
pings of a new IM coming in, because it usually means something
significant server-wise.

Case 2)
I want to hear my VOIP phone ringing over the perfect noise of Rammstein.

and that's just me... there must be thousands of other legitimate use cases!
