However, my experience is that it's difficult to LEARN to do this when the sound is REALLY ANNOYING. You might try training yourself by actively focussing on sounds while it is relatively quiet, and while some of the sounds are pleasant. Notice how, for example, the birds and the wind don't bother you, but the traffic and TV do...

when we stop fighting with the sound, stop having aversion, we can let the sound arise and pass away

Definitely move out. Get your own place. I highly recommend it.
However, I think you'll find you'll take your annoyances with you.
