Default Quiet air pump?

I have a small 2.5 gallon tank set up next to my bed and plan on using it as a breeding tank for shrimp. I want to split the air between a sponge filter in that tank and an air stone in my 10 gallon. Later I want to use the pump for a larger 10-20 gallon shrimp breeding bucket during the summer so I would like it to be powerful enough to run a few sponge filters.

Would a tetra whisper be quiet enough to use in my room? I would like it to be quieter than my top fin 30 power filter. I found a tetra whisper 40 and 20 for the same price but need to know if the 40 or even the 20 would be louder than my power filter.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
