Hmmm I find them quiter than the Dunlops. Though my Dunlops had had a rough 4500 miles on them.

Now, what I do find is that they RE050 are not as predictable when pushed to the limit, the break away hard, not like the dunlops that broke away very progressively, giving you plenty of feedback. Also, the re050 squeal somewhat when pushed hard, the dunlops never did that....though I have not played with the air pressure yet.
