Expensive air pumps vs cheap(er)

Boy Howdy. Last week, the (ancient) air pump on one of my sons tanks died, so I went to get a new one. I asked about quieter pumps, as I usually buy the cheaper Profile air pumps. I was shown several different models, all ranging from $12 on up to over $34. I settled on a smaller Whisper model (the $12 one) as I didn't need a bigger one, and my husband would kill me and swear I died in a fit if I spent $34 for an air pump. I was told this was supposed to be very quiet. Well, I got it home and plugged it in. It is much, much noisier than the cheaper Profiles. Much Noisier. Bah humbug.
