I read that the claim was 10 db quieter, which is about half as loud.

If you would like quieter, use Live View Silent Shooting, mode 2. No mirror sounds at all as it stays up the whole time for Live View. Mode 2 the shutter does not open for the LV of the next shot until you take your finger off of the shutter button. You can even focus quietly by using Live View "Live" which is contrast detect and the mirror does not flip down at all.

If it is 10 dB quieter, it would mean it is now 1/10th as loud. Half as loud would be 3 dB less.
