How much quieter are cannisters?

Compared to a HOB? Thinking of getting tank #2 in the same room as the first. Want to cut down on noise.
Thanks!

Most canister filters are very quiet, They are usually under the stand. I run Rena canisters and they are extremely quiet. I can't hear them at all.

Definitely the loudest thing about my tank would be when my bubble decoration thingy vibrates itself out of its very specific quiet spot hahah
