It is very noisy outside my apartment. I wm collecting options for solutions.
-earplugs? White noise apps?
Is there another option?
I was thinking if there is such a device as earplug that is also an alarm clock, that wouldnt keep me ftom hearing the alarm clock.
Also, how about adding some soundproofness to the room in a cheap way?


Hello. My name isXXXXX is actually an easy solution for you. There are ear plugs that attenuate ambient noise while allowing higher frequency noises to be audible. Here is one example:
Claratone Alpine Sleepsoft


Here they are on Amazon (above is a UK link)

Alpine Sleepsoft Earplugs

Soundproofing is expensive and potentially dangerous, since most sound-proofing is not fire rated for home. And you would have to soundproof the entire room for it to work. Not only that, but based on my having been in soundproofed recording studios, the feeling one gets in a soundproofed room can be a bit uncomfortable - it's a very unnatural, isolating feeling to have absolutely no ambient noise, and for sound in the room to feel "dead".

I have extremely loud neighbors, and these ear plugs work well for me. It let's me sleep through their construction, their music, the occaisional jackhammer on the street, but still I have no problem waking up to the alarm on my smartphone.

Let me know if there is any more information you need.

sounds great Mike.

do you know a website where I could buy it in dollars and get ut shipped from the usa?


Yes, here you go....

Alpine Sleepsoft Earplugs

And Amazon offers free shipping on orders over $25, I believe, so if you order two pair, you'll get them shipped free.
