Maybe you should try what I did at work. I was 
blasted day in and day out by the school 
bell going off at the end of periods 
that  was located _inside the class a few 
feet behind me (never  measured the 
sound but it was easily 100 dBA or more). On top 
of that I had to put up with the speaker 
firing at me with announcements 
throughout the day.                                        

Solution: one day after school when most had left 
the building, I  climbed up on a desk, 
disconnected the bell and put up 
muffling in front of the speaker but behind the metal grill. I 
should have done it a year earlier!
