Ear plugs help, so does listening to soft music thru ear phones, also the noise blocking ear covers they sell with heavy equipment like jackhammers, giggle, the only problem with them is they are pressure noise reducing and are a relief for the head and outer ears when removed. When i use to go to concerts cigarette filters were useful for ear plugs, the noise was blinding.Even the birds chirping in the morning are annoying. I have only found things wrapped around my ears to give any relief, there must be other things out there I have not discovered them.There is also sensory vibration to play at part, the vibrations from machines, trucks and engines, even though we may not hear it we can also feel it but are so accustomed we think we dont notice. Even cotton in the ears help. If you find any other solutions please share, thank you.
