Seashell-to-the-ear is a great description. It's just white noise, not some really ear-grating high-pitched whine or something.

Exact same experience down to my wife having a cat hearing
Seashell noise is right on the money...

Got the EM-5 just 5 days ago. Charged 'er up, started shooting.

Expecting the thing to sound like a leaf-blower or something, judging by what's been written. So disappointing that I didn't hear anything at all at arm's length.

Only when I pressed the "bump" against my ear did I detect a sound, kind of like that of a seashell down at the beach.

I thought it was just my lousy ears. But my wife, who has the hearing of a young cat, didn't notice it either even at close range to the camera.

As others say, "much ado about nothing".
