I think I need one. Any recommendations? Or other suggestions for sleeping through my neighbors' and cats' totally normal noises? This lady needs her sleep!

I keep my desk fan on through the night, pointed away from me if it's not warm enough to need to be fanned. It drowns out most external noises.

My other suggestion would be earplugs - I can't sleep without mine. Noisy cats and snoring husband, argh.

I've slept with earplugs for over 15 years and I love them (because I wear them at work, I figured out that days I fly I can easily have earplugs in for 12 -16 hours!), but one of my cats has gotten adept at gently biting them out of my ear and hiding them. I never even thought about apps, I was sure I was going to have to buy some expensive machine! I have nowhere I have to be tomorrow, so I'm going to try no earplugs and simplynoise tonight.

That's kind of cute :)

I kind of get used to the truck that supplies the supermarket across the street at 5 am. (partially gets me out of my sleep, but not fully)

i do some work at a factory where their ear protection has cords, so the cat can`t go that far.... not sure if you can buy that type of ear protection at a home depot type place or not.
i do wear earplugs when i am on deadline, and they`re a lifesaver.

I have the sleep mate white noise machine. Best thing ever. I sleep with it on every night & even travel with it.

I jumped around youtube until I found the noise that works for me (brown noise! not white -- apparently there's a whole spectrum) and then downloaded it using listentoyoutube or something like it. I listen to it when I sleep or work or have a braincrash or whatever.

I use the myNoise app: http://mynoise.net/theApp.php

It has white noise and rain noise. For both you can adjust the sound by boosting/cutting certain frequencies (ok so technically it's not white noise anymore then..) and you can also animate this frequency changing (it's like the intensity of rain changing). And you can set a timer - I usually let it fade out after 30 minutes because I'm asleep by then.

I use one called White Noise. My favorite setting is "pink noise" for some reason, but it had rain, ocean sounds, jungle noises, fire crackling, fan sounds, etc. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/white-n ... 87597?mt=8

I bought a white noise machine/alarm clock and it was the worst. There was a clear loop that you could hear and the clock glowed bright blue and lit up the whole room. In addition to that, the numbers were back-lit, so I couldn't see them unless I sat up in bed and squinted.

I'm really happy with the app, and it was free.

I tried a white noise machine and it didn't work for me, nor did earplugs, but my neighbors' loud boom-boom music is beyond normal noise. I tried it during the day, not for sleeping, but to avoid being driven mad by everything vibrating with sound.
