My airpump seems to vibrate causing it to become a little noisy so I placed a rag under it. Other than that, I have not seen any airpump that seems very quiet. I've tested every pump my local fish stores have.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

But then again I don't know of any quiet air pumps.
Really? I have a whisper 20 and I find it doesn't make a lot of noise at all! But I could be wrong, I'll go check.... Ok so it does make noise.. I guess I never noticed before? The water coming from the filter is louder then the air pump. If you set the valve in the middle is doesn't make so much noise. I think it's all the vibrations that make the noise, but I'll try what lupin said and put a cloth under it

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
