The Duraflame Electric Log Set does not make any sound except for the minor hum of the blower. Northern does sell a Kracklebox fireplace sound system (#172950) to provide convincing, realistic sounds of a crackling log fire.

There is no crackle sound. The fan makes noise but it is not too objectionable. You can add the Kracklebox sound unit, but I have not tried it because of the cost.

The blower is nicely concealed behind a finely perforated grate underneath the metal-looking, vertical "rungs" of the grate holding the logs. You can't see it -- you can obviously hear it when it's running, but it's not so loud that it's annoying when running.
