Default Silencing Air Pump

Hello,

I recently bought a 4way air pump and this pump makes so much noise.

Is there a method where you can construct a box with little inverted air vents to silence this?

Any practical tips would be welcome or any science theories on how to silence the air pump efficiently.

I was thinking of a wooden box with silicone all around with only 1 hole for air to enter in and the remaining tubes out of the wooden box?

U'm willing to try anything, im so tired of this hummming noise

I put air pumps on a thick folded towel.

Hang the air pump by the air line or some other means. Or get a quieter version.

I use an air pump thatís actually used in baby brine shrimp hatching system and thatís super quiet but not very powerful.
