Totally forgot about these. Yup, these are a good option. Run a low frequency sine wave non-stop and they might start seeing ghosts, or just go nuts.

Can't you call the police for anti-social behaviour like that?

Seriously. What are you trying to achieve?
Retaliating is not going to modify your neighbours behaviour. Move.If that is an option.

Really? Move?

 

Retaliating might change your neighbour's behaviour.

 

One day, when it was particularly loud, I finally tired of the unremitting noise coming from next door. 

 

I got down my Strat, connected up a very loud and not particularly musical solid-state instrument amplifier that is part of my armoury and gave them a 20-minute demonstration of just how disturbing unwanted noise can be. I never had a problem after that.

 

The oft-unappreciated beauty of an electric guitar is that you can make a louder, more unpleasant noise for longer, with less effort than by virtually any other means whatsoever (even a saxophone).

Well I'm suprised but pleased to hear that
sometimes inconsiderate neighbours respond to treatment. OP. Time to go electric!

The thing about deep bass frequencies is that they are omni-directional and you can't really keep them from going in a particular direction.  Not without some SERIOUS insulation.  Basically it takes a layer of concrete between floors to keep low bass notes from intruding into other rooms or floors.
