Not far from Gareth's answer but I think this could be

But I got haters too

  • $\begingroup$ You got the word "working". Right one $\endgroup$ – A J Jul 4 '16 at 14:07
  • $\begingroup$ @BrentHackers your answer is right. I meant profession/job by "working". $\endgroup$ – A J Jul 4 '16 at 14:10

    $\begingroup$ @AJ OK cool. I think Gareth might be right about the question having a lot of possible good fits though. Feel's a little like a "Guess what I'm thinking of!" puzzle. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jul 4 '16 at 14:11

This feels like there might be multiple equally-good answers, but how about

a music player (could be CD player, MP3 player, old-fashioned record player, ...)

The clues apply pretty straightforwardly; the weakest link is "But I got haters too" for which the best I can do is

to observe that e.g. sitting on a bus or train next to someone with loud music playing through their earphones can be really annoying.

  • $\begingroup$ Gud one, but the reasoning for I soothe your mind is not entirely correct because gambling is a game full of tensions as far I know. $\endgroup$ – A J Jul 5 '16 at 11:58

I think it's a

portable Bluetooth speaker.

Most of you love me

Most people love this gadget. Hundreds of thousand of them are sold in a year.

But I got haters too

But some audiophiles can't stand them because of the sound quality.

I play when I am working

I am working while I am playing

It's in working order when it can play music. And it's playing while it's working.

If you play the right music it might soothe your mind.
