Why was music played through headphones to the dreamer?

The headphone is always placed on the dreamer of the following level and is a cue that a kick is about to take place, urging them to start the kick process for the dream of the next level.

The music will be incorporated by the dreamer into their dream, and all those in that dream will hear it. This acts as a signal to prepare for a kick. It is an instance of the more general phenomenon of something experienced by a dreamer entering the dream in some form - for example, the water of the bath enters Cobb's dream, the champagne drunk by Yusuf on the airplane enters his dream as rain, drowning in the van enters Cobb's limbo dream as the experience of being washed ashore choking, etc
