At our ages, whose hearing is that good compared to 20 years ago? (And now the legions of listeners who can hear mice piss on wool are sure to chime in). Fortunately, these are all expensive TOY purchases anyways. Try living in tranquil, scenic Forest Hills (NYC) surrounded by the Grand Central, LIE, and Van Wyck on a street with a major bus route no less.

A huge sound killer - (most) energy-efficient refrigerators that hum, whistle, click, thud, shutter, etc. at least thirty minutes for every hour of operation.

My problem is not from within the house, but from the street with the idiots and their subwoofers passing by. The other problem is nieghborhood barking dogs. Why would anyone want a creature that leaves crap everywhere and uncontrollably produces loud sharp noises? Get a goldfish for crying out loud! And these punks with their crap cars that tripled their value when they added their stereo! What ever happend to noise ordinances? Oh and I guess the refridgerator does make a humming noise once and a while.
Don't blame the dogs ! Blame the owners . We have had many fine canines , I was able to teach each and everyone of them not to bark unnecessarily . It was allot easier then teaching the better half not to natter away like a mad squirrel .
I guess I'm lucky , my listening/living room is free of annoying noise except for low level heating and A/C noise .
