Barring group rides, I usually ride listening to music. I know many people don't support the practice, but it makes me happy. I generally am pretty good about scanning and am visually aware of what's going on around me. The couple of times I have been passed and startled by someone streaking by at a full sprint, I haven't minded too much. All that being said it always amazes me when some yells at me angrily after I have passed them and scared the crap out of them. You are the one walking along impaired/inattentive/musiced/etc. After I have yelled to you (usually twice) that I am behind you and you don't notice, it's all on you. If you can't handle the outside world by paying attention to it, stay home.
