If you don't happen to live in a city where nightly fireworks have become a new development, you've likely heard of them (and numerous bourgeoning conspiracy theories) by now. Short of screaming into a pillow out of sheer frustration (been there...) or turning on a meditation app in a futile attempt to take your mind off the incessant pops (...done that), you might be looking for ways to minimize loud noise while trying to get a good night's sleep.
We hear you loud and clear, so we've done the work and scoured the interwebs for the best noise-canceling items that'll actually work to help you get — and stay — fast asleep. From bulk bins of earplugs to fancy ambient noise machines, here's what we resort to when we need to get some much-needed peace and quiet.
