I purchased these wind chimes about a month ago and love them. They aren't that high pitched chime sound, but more of a deep church bell sound.

Are all your neighbors going to appreciate you sharing your nonstop noise with them?

I like the cathedral ones. They sound like bells from a church with deep soothing sounds but not too loud. I also enjoy bamboo chimes. Better yet, capiz shell chimes...

I had a windchime tree in my back yard. Full of all kinds. Neighbors loved it and kept their windows open at night to hear them. Had a waterfall in my yard too. Neighbors loved that as well.

Tbh, I couldn’t care less about one of my neighbors. I’d get 20 more if it would convince them to move.

As far as my great neighbors, our houses aren’t very close, they might hear it on windy days. It beats the construction noise in the area.

I listen to my neighbors' cars, motorcycles, kids, lawnmowers, weed whackers, dogs, leaf blowers, and snow blowers. I WISH one of them would can it and just get a nice wind chime.

Don't people turn them off at night?

Corinthian Bells. They have a distinctly rich, warm sound and are incredible. We actually have them indoors over a floor vent so we can hear them throughout the day. Truly a delight.

They come in various sizes and musical scales: https://whimsicalwinds.com/Manufactu...ls_Wind_Chimes

The best wind chimes are found in a trash can. What we don't need is more noise pollution.

Wind chimes are truly an annoyance and I'm glad I'm not the OP's neighbor.
