I too have LED’s in the house.  Slowly converting all.  I have not noticed any extra noise from them either.  They seem quiet, but still get quite warm at the base, in fact warm enough that I can’t keep my fingers on for more than just a touch, hot in other words.  

Time will tell how well they hold up.  The one in the shack is a Feit CEOM40 7 watt 2700K device.

I recently converted about 30 ceiling floods to LED.  I used the Phillips
brand 90W bulbs and I have not noticed any noise.

ceiling lights from Home Depot that turned out to be pretty noisy.
he didn't get a screen grab but he described the noiseas broadband. Below

GE flood lights and a snap in trim piece.

I also put GE LED light bulbs in the bedroom ceiling fans and they are

Best approach to changing over to LEDs is buy one and test it before you buy
for the entire project.
