[QUOTE=roob1;1713019]Will it work for the sleeping person, when one rises earlier then the other and is using the main area of the home early in the AM? Don't think so...


I have been using Hearos Xtreme ear plugs to sleep for years now. I don‘t hear my wife snore, or when she is up and around the house before me. Can’t sleep without them now.

One person is up before the other, and is in the main house area. This disturbs the sleeping person, who can not wear earplugs.

Please no more headphone suggestions!

Our bedrooms are very quiet, but I think it's a combination of the doors and the insulation.
We did the same although just around the master bedroom. We haven't moved in yet so I'm glad to hear it works

My dog & I travel frequently but she barks at every voice or door closing so I use a free App on my iPhone called White Noise. It has a lot of options but she does best with a constant dull rumble so I use the oscillating fan. Works wonders! I like to sleep to the sound of waves too.

We didn't have the option to get a different door or increase the insulation. It's not just TV noise. It's the clanking of dishes and silverware, microwave beeping, cabinets closing, etc. The slightest noise carries. We try to be really quiet in the main area if one of us sleeps in and use a white noise machine in the master bedroom.

Since I grew up in St. Petersburg and we didn't have A/C in the 60's, I always slept with a fan. I've gotten to the point that if I travel I take a fan with me. Cannot sleep in a totally quiet room, must have the fan or in some motels the A/C unit is in the room by the door and will work as well. I've been through about 4 fans in my life.

Hmm. That means you won't hear your wife if she falls and can't get up...

We also use a cheap fan. Perfect. Cannot hear anything outside bedroom. Even when family visit we sleep soundly.
