I know most of us on this forum are more concerned about creating the sound but what if you're trying to keep it out? What's the best thing to use if you want peace and quiet but you stay with noisy teenagers?

Hi, A sort of difficult to answer question as it depends on when the noise is problem and what the noise actually is. If it is just day to day racket...then you have a serious problem and unless you want to wear ear plugs all day it will not be easy to get rid of. Yes you can use a music player with head phones and that will mask the noise, but it will in its own way cause problems. If you want to make a room quieter...it is possible, but expensive. Sound deadening, baffles in air ducts, extra wall board levels, and so on. It would probably be cheaper to move out. BTW I find that quality over the ear phones actually seem better than noise cancelling ones. Snug in ear ones can be even better.
