"Great product."

However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. It has two places to hook up tubing to. It is quiet and powerful and doesn't get hot. Kudo to them for backing up their product.

"As far as noise."

I found calcium deposits were clogging the bottom where the air was supposed to exit. You'd think this thing would stop working, but it didn’t! Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. I have to unplug it every time I want to shut it off. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. The rubber bottom feet really help to keep the unit quite and in one place. The reviews sold me on this product but I was still skeptical​.

2. AZOO AIR PUMP 2500

Azoo First Impressions

"Very quiet pump."

This pump cost a bit more than the small quite ones but is way more powerful. I got the bigger size because I used it in my 450 gallon tank and it's perfect. The stone is very heavy, so it is easy to position and stays put where you want it. Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! Provides proper wattage for all my accessories. Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge.

"The dial never turns off."

Overall seems like a good air pump. Not to mention tank depth, etc becomes a factor. The motor was working but air was not moving. I hung it so its not touching anything. I honestly wasn't expecting that much of a difference but man was I surprised. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines!

"Works great and is quiet."

Considering the warranty and performance, I upgraded my rating by 2 stars. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. This would be the fourth attempt to satisfy my needs and my ears. Super quiet, lots of power and looks super sleek. I added a check valve to my airline tubing and works as expected. I'd say this pump would be loud if it were used in the same room as you. My first one may have been a lemon.

"The bubbles are amazing!"

They generate a TON of air and last a long long time. Its been on 24 hours a day for about 5 days. I hung it so its not touching anything. However Once you plug it to the Oxy tubes it is Silent! It just sounds like a large freezer. I was currently using 2 Whispers and they were anything but whispering. But this one has no noticeable sounds.

"This is both."

Seems very well built, does as advertised. But this one has no noticeable sounds. I guarantee the fan will help it's shelf life. But this one has no noticeable sounds.

"So far, so good."

I have this in our small aquarium with an LED bubble stone. I keep the pump and air valves in the box to lessen the noise. All the reviews from all the different models are lumped together. I have two of these running in my kitchen and my living room is right next to it. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full. Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! Its not going to vibrant on anything!

"It is extremely quiet."

This seems to be a good little pump that really puts out some air! The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. I use them in my Tilapia tanks and Koi pond. Just bought and started using it a few days ago. Ordered this air pump to replace one of my other pumps and the difference is amazing. These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. Larger tank owners won't have my issues.

"Definitely reccomend!"

This runs pretty darn quiet for a high output air pump. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. But this one has no noticeable sounds. They don't even vibrate the old school plastic tank hanger mounts they sit on. I just cleaned my 20 tank for the first time in, well too long.

"Wish didn't have to."

It really is pretty quiet- once you unclog the air pathway. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. If you leave one open, it makes noise. I started to write a poor review of the pump. I know my title sounds overly dramatic, but I'm not kidding. It's the second one of this model I’ve owned. I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler!

"Its pretty quiet."

Overall seems like a good air pump. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. Pay a bit more but the quality is worth it. Save some money by not having to replace your air pumps every year! These work better than any of the others I have tried in my price point. I had the Whisper models and they were way too high in emissions. I was wrong it has enough power to run all 9 with air to spare.

"Now close to the glass."

I have to put my head behind the tank to hear it! Yes it obviously makes some noise-but not at all as much as I was anticipating. Highly recommend if you desire HIGH air output on several tubing lines! The new unit works fine as a secondary air pump in a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium. The pump is so powerful that it pushed off the connection tube several times. The motor was working but air was not moving. I couldn't even think to do my work.

"It's easy to set up."

Buzzing, humming, vibrating- they were driving me nuts! Kudo to them for backing up their product. For now, I'd say I would gladly buy another. The air being pumped out can be quite warm as well. I'm sure it would run a much larger bubble stick also. If it craps out anytime soon, I'll update the review. Sometimes stopping all together if the water is full.

"It pumps PLENTY of air!"

My 20H tank is in my office, 3 feet away from my desk. Seems very well built, does as advertised. A simple piece of foam under the unit solved that. Overall seems like a good air pump. It didn't blow air out that line, while it still had a little water in the unit! Use large Air Stone Bars for giant columns of air bubbles. The current from the circle is so strong circulation is not a issue!

"What a difference."

I have 3 of them on different surfaces. I have the pump hooked up to a large sponge. The rubber feet dampen most anything that the sealed pump doesn't cover. I was going to buy 3 small air pumps to power 9 sponge filters when I saw this pump. Once, the water in this tank backflowed into the unit. But if it's in another room, it’s not bad at all. 5 Watts, Fusion 700 rated at 6 watts,Whisper 300 rated at 7.

"Great product."

I put a nice little fan next to mine and it now runs much cooler! I have it running 8 different sponge filters at high rate! Though the 18W model isn't so loud that it can only be used outside. The added tubing and manifold make this an even better value. I have been in the hobby for 20+ years and this is the best air pump! So I run two of these with gang valves on my 55 gallon tall living room tank. Almost all people will be highly satisfied with this unit.
