what is a air pump supposed to sound like?

when i got the 10G it came with a small air pump, a jet stream 1500. i didn't notice it being this loud yesterday or the day before but it seems very loud today. and it almost sounds like someone is taking a breath between the hum. it also seems to have a slight rattle...maybe... i wish i could make a recording of it so i can show you. but in any case is it supposed to make this noise? did i just not notice it before? it still seems t be working fine though. the air flow isn't stuttered or anything. is this normal?

It sounds like a cheap pump. Often they are loud and get louder as they get warmer. If you have a good one you should not hear it much if at all.

I have 2 whispers and they are pretty quiet. I think back in day I paid $17 each for a double outlet.
