You'd probably have to install insulation strips like for
weatherstripping plus use a floor stop to block the sound coming
through below the door. I would try a white noise device such as a
slightly noisy fan. You don't want one which knocks (ting! ting!
ting!) but rather one where the air rushing past the blades/housing
creates some blowing noise. I've used 'muffin fans' used to give air
flow in computer mainframe chassis.
