This topic comes up several times a year. I've never noticed M1 being noiser than other oils but there are others who make the claim.
Yes it does come up often.
OP- My suggestion would be to stick with an oil that doesn't cause noise. You might read that the noise is harmless, doesn't exist, is in your head, whatever. Bottom line stick with an oil that doesn't cause your engine to be noisier. I had a similar situation with a very popular boutique oil often touted here, and caught some heat for mentioning it. I changed it out and never looked back.
I used Mobil 1 for years with no problems at all. Go figure.
