How loud are sumps?

I'm planning on building one, but if it sounds like a waterfall then im gonna just buy another silent fluval 404 canister filter.

You have 3 places where water has to "fall". There might be a way to make a silent one, but I'm not aware of it.

I personally find the sound comforting (and I hate cleaning a canister)
