E-M1 iii audible noise while shooting

I am testing an em1 iii  for purchase without another to compare it to. I have an em5 iii that is completely silent while shooting with electronic shutter. The em1 makes a whoosh sound  (for lack of a better explanation) when shooting  and it happens for every activation. I have turned off ibis, AF and have used a manual adapted lens. The noise is also there with mechanical shutter but the shutter sound dominates. I may now be looking too hard at it, but the battery drops very rapidly while and I’ve been testing, not sure if it’s related. My inclination is to send it back, this is a long term camera for me and while the price is attractive, I don’t like having doubts about it. Can anyone confirm whether this normal?
thank you
