How to eliminate unwanted sound (e.g., wav file executed on opening web page) while listening to music?

While i work, I listen to music using headphones plugged into the headphone jack on my MBP. Sometimes the music is streamed via iTunes radio, but usually mp3 files played through iTunes.

"I use FlashBlock for Firefox. I believe ClickToFlash is the same thing for Safari.

Of course that doesn't deal with other ways a browser might make noises, such as other plugins (I don't run any anyway, for security reasons; I don't know if you can remove the QT plugin on Mac though) and HTML5 <audio>. The latter is still rare though. Almost all the real-world obnoxious auto-noisy sites are doing it with Flash.

As a bonus, you get to restrict Flash cookies which otherwise make a mockery of your privacy settings."
