Give it a few weeks to 'break in' and was previously mentioned you will hardly notice it, if at all. You will get used to the sound very quickly. It's the fact that your listening out for it, when your in the room, that makes it louder!!!

I'm not sure there are any HOB filters out there that are any quieter, though. You'll be pleased to know I set up my QT in the bedroom yesterday and I slept right though the quiet hum of the AC 30.
