Quiet air pump

Which air pump is quieter? The EHEIM 100 air pump, the Fluval Q.5 air pump, or the Fusion 400 air pump?

I can't comment on the pumps but have found sitting them on a towel and making sure they are not pumping air too hard can help.

So this is crazy, but I've found that a lot of air pumps have little hook on them. I've started stringing mine up by those hooks under the stand, and you pretty much can't hear them at all.

Until you put a bucket too close. 😹
I'm probably on my phone.

I have a tetra 40 that is silent unless I let something lean against it.
