Help Me Choose A Diffuser (Noise Related)

Ok so I have one of the more expensive ada / branded diffusers which looks great.



But my goodness it's driving me crazy and has been for a while. In short it whistles. I clean it repeatedly and have even tried turning up the bps to no avail so I've been looking into other alternatives and just wanted your input?

Aesthetically I'm not a fan of ladders and so far my choices are down to two.

A. Up aqua co2 diffusers or B. Atomizer Diffusers I'm leaning towards B



But in truth I'm willing to consider any option just so long as it cuts the noise down.

Do you have a canister filter? If so, what about an inline reactor?

I'm not really a fan of those to be honest

Upaqua also comes in with an inline atomiser, IMO that's perfect for you, since it's inline it does not spoil aesthetics an' literally gives 100% diffusion and definitely zero noise, reason I say it -> I personally use this

Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.
