They're not too bad. I hear them when they kick on for the computer desk I have, but have no problems with the AV cabinet when the music/TV's on.
Something to keep in mind is make sure you tell him how you want to vent the air. I had to flip the fans once I got them since he had the grill end on the inside of the cabinet and I wanted them the other way.
The thing that is a little loud is the thermostat he uses. It's a cheap home thermostat that makes a metalic twang when it kicks on or off. Not a big deal, but I'd be willing to pay extra for something that quite, but that would then also require power too.
