If he was off world on a tropical by unpopulated planet then I'd say he could. On Earth it would be overly complicated.

Superman would never take a vacation, the one time him and Lois did after there honeymoon. Adam Grant was murdered by the toyman robot. So I think he learned his lesson.

I think that's not just a Superman thing. I'm pretty sure that once you don the tights you're pretty much making a full time commitment. Once you become a superhero you become part of the active eco-system, so to speak, and removing yourself from said ecosystem leaves a lot of the people who where depending on you completely at a loss. I think even if Superman couldn't hear the cries for help, his conscience would still keep bringing him back.

It would be fine with me if Superman took a really really really long vacation.  He could get some earplugs and head gear maybe even a motorcycle helmet to put on to muffle the noise and then fly off to some distant galaxy far far away.   
 
:}  Go Supes go get a little R&R.

First, turn around and shoot those birds in the back ground.  They are noisy!
 
To me I always thought Superman's hearing was a volutary muscle, not a involuntary muscle. Just like his x-ray vision and heat vision he controls like a switch.  It's not always on, but he would have to sorta focus and turn it on.

He could vacation on the Moon perhaps... Anywhere the sound wouldn't get to I guess

He did leave the planet in the 80s for a bit. Had a little breathing thing and left. Came back with a beard.

superman has taken breaks and vacations before. 
other heroes ahve as well. 
if superman felt guilty that he wasnt saving people on vacation then he wouldnt have a secret identity and waste time on a career when he could be saving people

Supes has tried to go on vacation before, but he just always gets pulled back to help when he tries to take a serious break. 
 
But honestly, Superman is doomed to the life of never getting a real break. 
 
True heroes can rest when they are dead.
