It’s actually possible to use sound as an object of meditation (instead of seeing it as an obstacle to meditation). When you become aware of a noise, simply note “sound”, or “hearing, hearing.” You don’t need to identify what the sound is, try to follow it, or try to make it go away. Eventually you can also notice how you’re relating to the noises - irritation, frustration, or if they’re pleasant - happiness, etc. - and see if you can just be with the sounds without judging them as wrong or bad.
