What is your night sound?

Do you need to have it absolutely quiet when you sleep at night or do you have to have some sort of noise in the background?
Please explain.

I love the sound of the rain at night, but I hate to hear the television or people talking while I am trying to sleep so I turn on a fan next to my bed as "white noise" to drown out other noises.

  • I need complete silence when 'm trying to sleep. DH watches TV in our bedroom. I can't fall asleep till it goes off. Or I'll turn it off as soon as he's snoring! lol. In the summer I do like the sound of the fan or AC though.

  • If I am tired i can sleep through anything--the T.V. a dryer running, people talking, anything.

  • if i'm exhausted it doesn't matter. however on a normal night it has to be quiet, i can deal with a fan or the ac running but the tv or people talking i can't fall asleep. dh has to have the tv on so we take turns on who gets to fall asleep first (once i'm asleep it doesn't matter as long as its not loud) he'll wait for me to fall asleep and turn on the tv or i wait for him to fall asleep and turn it off. he has to have some kind of noise, tv or radio i can't do it, it always catches my attention and i want to watch or sing along

  • I don't care about noises in general while I am falling asleep. However, I do not like music unless it is very quiet, for some reason it distracts me more than it helps me to fall asleep.

  • We have a fan that runs at night. I need it quiet to sleep and without the fan there's still little sounds that bother me. We all sleep with fans running year round.
