I can speak to springers mechanisms being louder than the shot itself.  But, even at that, my wife cannot hear me shooting from the bedroom window, so it’s still fairly covert.  If you’re outside, yeah you’ll hear it – but it’s not loud.

What matters a lot is barrel length, and the energy of the power plant.  My gun puts a consistent 10ft-lbs of energy into whatever pellet I’ve got loaded.  Longer barrels, higher energy power sources, and price are what it comes down to.  

Take a good look at the Air Force Talon and Condor.  They look very much worth the price.
