We can all probably relate to the noise issue with your air pump, I never had any that were really silent and I've learned to mask the noise in similar fashions as some of those who have already posted.
I would not leave the tank unfiltered while you figure this out.. I would also want the sponger filter to remain in working order to ensure the bacteria remains alive.
I think the power head is an excellent option and will solve the noise issue. They can certainly be purchased for the same price (or less) as an air pump... so I'd go the power head route....
