Is it the syphon or ball valve if ball valve fit a torbeck valve reduces
noise without the need to place fingers in ears.
You can also fit one of the new type flap valves for syphon these are
operated by push button and are again much more quiet.
Both available from Plumbase
If it is flush noise you are trying to get rid of, rather than the cistern
filling noise, you need to replace the pan, not the cistern. Syphonic types
are much more quiet, and very common in the rest of the world. Some people
hate them for leaving streaks, but they are very suitable for en-suites
where you don't want to wake the other half (or half a dozen screaming kids
down the corridor). Fit a decent quiet cistern valve to take away the
filling noise and you have a very discreet system.

Several things to try:
Try turning down the isolator valve (if there is one) a bit to
reduce/change flow rate.
Change the washer.
Replace ballcock with a Torbeck (tm) type. Remember to check that the
overflow will handle the full flow from the valve held open though.
Personally I'd go for the last option.
