I am very sensitive to noise, and that disturbs me a lot when sleeping. How do I sleep without earplugs?

In brief: Controlled noise

Usually it is more startle that wakes people.
So if you are sensitive to noise, i would recommend a sound machine or white noise (like static on radio) that you can control so it may drown out little noises that may wake you because they are "out of the ordinary and unexpected.".
