Foam ear plugs. It makes your own breath sounds much more audible, if that's the right word, and that's the perfect white noise for me. Plus it blocks out other noise.

I use a small vortex fan on the bedside table for white noise. I started using it in college and quickly became addicted to it. Introduced my wife to sleeping with a fan and now she can't fall asleep without it. It drowns all the creaks and small noises the cats make at night.

I almost need music to fall asleep. Once I'm out I'm fine though, so I usually just put on one album to help put me out.

I use to but I grew out of it. When I got out of the Navy, I learned real quick how the concept of quiet is relative. I got used to the constant noise on the ship, so when I got out and moved back home, the night I unpacked the moving van I couldn't sleep. So at 2am I was digging through boxes to find my stereo and speakers so I could sleep. It was just TOO damn quiet. Not sure what I did to get out of the habit, but sometimes I miss hearing my stereo in the middle of the night.

+1 to white noise. Fans rock.

Our one year old sleeps in our room and I keep a noise app going on my phone, usually waves on a beach. It's a long audio clip so it's usually fine unless I'm almost asleep when it loops back, then I'm wide awake thinking about how easy it would have been to use a nice, gentle crossfade. I can sleep through almost anything, so I think it's just because it annoys me that there's a flaw that could have been easily fixed. I used to use a fan to put our daughter to sleep, but my wife doesn't like the draft.

Fan helps. I used to live in the last apt building before the runway at the San Diego Airport. Nothing compares to the rhythmatic landing of jumbo jets to keep you asleep. Now the slightest noise wakes me. I'm very tired.

I grew up without any neighbors so I like it nice and quiet when I go to sleep.
