All of those except trams and horses.
Plus skateboards, a lot of kids ride those around here.

Also, helicopter - 2 common cases: every year when a fair happens down the hill from us there's one that gives people rides around the area. The other is a helicopter used by the large area hospital.
And hot air balloons are uncommon, but we've seen a few and even had one land near us. Well, honestly we didn't hear it.
I ride my ATV around, our neighbor has one too. We have neighbors with snowmobiles.

Emergency vehicles when they are in the area but not often. I, also close to a local commuter rail station so sometimes hear trains pulling into it as well as the casioanl streetcar (tram) from a nearby local transit station also our local subway runs underground near to my house so from time to time you can her it rumble by.

People walking, cars/taxis, bicycles (these would be hard to hear over the other noise, but for the sake of argument let's say I can pick them out), motorcycles, emergency vehicles, buses, and planes.

During the summer when we have the windows we can vaguely hear the few cars/motorcycles on the road out front and the occasional plane overhead.

Occasionally, planes, I'm only a few miles from London Heathrow here, also, cars and other motor vehicles, but only in the distance, boats on the Thames, as well as people walking by on the Tow Path by the Thames. It's very quiet here.
