The law: criminal law? traffic regulations? internal regulations of a company/in particular place?
Is the law common to everyone?
Is location relevant?

Sure, here's a RECAP

We're looking for a law and a clever way that was found to circumvent it. The law in question is neither a natural law nor a traffic law.
I said that it applies to everyone, which might have been confusing, so let me re-word it - as soon as you're in a particular situation, you have to obey it.
Location is very relevant.

Would the situation apply mostly to:
Infants? (0-2 years old)
Preschool age kids? (3-4 years)
Elementary school age kids? (5-10 years)
Middle school age? (11-13)
High school age? (14-18)

Young adults?
Middle aged?
The elderly?

Relationship status:
Single?
With boyfriend/girlfriend?
Married?

Would it be likely for parents?
If so would it be more likely for single parents? married parents? blended family?

HINT: Usually, groups of people who engage in a particular activity together are affected by the law.

Outdoor parties relevant?
Does one need equimpent to perform that activity?
Was the law introduced for safety reasons?
Is it relevant how big the group of people must be for the law to apply to them?

Quieting down at a certain time relevant? Throwing a party on the day the clocks are adjusted so you may add an hour to your party?

WAG: using a silencer to circumvent laws against firing a gun up in the air at a celebration (New Year's, for instance)? If it's not heard, then it's not investigated...

Does the relevant law set a specific time after which any loud noise must end? or does it forbid noise at all times?

Does it refer to a specific source of noise? for instance, prohibiting electronically amplified sound? if so, do they find a means of making sound louder without using the prohibited technology or method?

Or, going on that last line of thinking from the last post, do they only make noise when there is already something else making even louder noise nearby?

Wearing headphones relevant? very! I think this is enough for me to declare the

********SPOILER********

In Germany, there is a law that forbids loud outdoor noise after 10 p.m., which means that you can't have outdoor parties or concerts after that - or can you?!
Some clever people invented so-called "silent parties" or "silent discos" where the guests listen to the music using wireless headphones.
