Is it because your pump is noisy or because the bubbles are noisy? If its the first, you can run a long air line and put your pump somewhere else.

Does your filter provide any surface agitation ? If so, you probably don't have to worry about it.

With the exception of a few specific circumstances, the air pump is completely unnecessary and is for your viewing pleasure. Adequate filtration will oxygenate the water.
