If it has an anime, I will often listen to the best music from the anime (OST, OP/ED), mainly because it it's designed to fit the mood of the story.

Mostly everything else is too distracting for me, especially if it's too vocal.

Other than that I don't really know, it depends entirely on your tastes.

I listen to different genres and languages of music. Generally, English and Japanese (mostly anime) songs.

I'm not really distracted by music too easily so I can listen to almost anything when reading manga. However, I do have a tendency of listening to scores — especially any composed by Murray Gold — but I doubt that's in your alley.

I listen to a lot of game and anime OSTs, asides from that I listen to JPOP, instrumental and electronica.

I listen to instrumental stuff, mainly film soundtracks and albums by Ludovico Einaudi. Anything that isn't too loud and doesn't include any lyrics pretty much, as I wouldn't be able to concentrate otherwise. Although sometimes I read with the television on.

it depends what kind of manga I'm reading

like if it's a romance genre, I'll listen to a love song

if it's a horror genre, I'll listen to a dark song

and well you get the point

Trance, techno, good stuff without a lot of words, or non-English music, so you don't get distracted easily. Like mentioned, the OP/ED if it has an anime, or something.

Whenever I read something, I listen to One Winged Angel - Sephiroths theme song. :)

I was thinking about playing that song when I walk down the aisle when I get married. <3

normally music doesn't distract me... so i listen to whatever i like...

sometimes there are songs that really seem to suit the manga (like Story of a Girl to Kimi ni Todoke) and i listen to those songs more often while reading that manga...

It basically depends on what music do you like =)
Of course, if you can't find anything, listening to the anime song is always a good option!
