Quietest Skimmer Contest

I probably shouldn't have put this one in 'getting started'...
If there was a contest for the quietest protein skimmer on the market today, which one would win it?

I have an ASM G1 skimmer in my sump and it is truly silent.....my HOB filter is even louder than it is. The only one I have ever tried was a skilter (horrible and loud too) and a seaclone (not loud, not quiet, but it doesn't work so it doesn't matter)
