I can hear mine always. Not loud, but it's there. But it does not change in volume when gaming, idle, or "off" that I have noticed.

A) It isn't a lot of PS4's with those issues.

B) Both consoles are equally quiet. Both occasionally spike up in terms of fan noise, but both also go back down.

I sit far enough away from both consoles that I can't hear either while playing (they sit next to each other), but if I stand next to them in the middle of a long gaming session, my PS4 is noticeably louder and running hotter than my XB1.

I own both systems and they are both much quieter than the previous gen. 95% of the time you won't even realize they are on.

My Xbox only gets loud when it's installing a disc.

I would imagine the PS4 should be louder, it has a more powerful graphics card, which uses more power, which creates more heat, which needs better cooling, which means higher fanspeeds, which means more noise.

yeah i suppose it's all subjective, i can hear everything though, maybe the x1 would be kinda loud to me aswell? gonna check some youtube videos maybe an see..

although it does seem the ps4 can be generally louder than the x1.
