I can and it worries me, it's not the disc drive as I have nothing in there. It seems to be either a HD or fan. I am leaning towards a fan. It makes a very slight spinning noise. Not grinding but more as if a bug was rubbing his legs together in the night lol, hard to explain.

Anyone else?

I've never heard it while it's on.

Unlike the noisy PS4.

Still, nothing beats my jet engine 360.

What kind of bug does it sound like? That could help pinpoint what's wrong with your Xbox.

Have you tried putting your ear up to the power brick? Mine makes a pretty annoying noise.

Exactly how much noise do you hear, tc? Do you only hear this noise in a dead silent room? If that's the case, then there's not much of a problem there. The problem would be if you hear noise even with the volume turned up.

For example, My 5+ year old fat Falcon Xbox 360 sounds like a jet engine. I can hear that sound even through high game volume or through other noise sources such as a cooling fan blowing at me. That's real console noise. Noise that is audible only in a dead silent room is not anything worth mentioning.

There will always be noise in a console that has a cooling fan in it. The real question is: Can you hear that noise with the game volume turned up. Honestly, the most quiet system I have ever owned is the 160gb slim PS3 (not super slim). This thing is dead silent even after 3+ years.

Edit: Now I see you added that it's a cricket sounding noise. I thought you meant cooling fan noise.

It could be the power brick? Mine made a loud fan noise but that was because it was plugged into a surge protector. Plugged it straight into the wall and within a day or two it went back to being dead silent.
