Hitachi has a new portable air compressor coming out, model EC28M. It features a 1 gallon air tank, 125PSI max pressure, and oil-free design.
Hitachi rates its sound output at just 59 dBa, which is quite low. Extremely surprisingly low.
Additional features include a steel roll cage, industrial-grade regulator and gauges, and a simple control panel. It’s compact, and weighs 25.2 lbs. They make a point of saying that the compressor is ready to be used, right out of the box.

This looks to be a well-spec’ed compact air compressor, and I can’t get over how low the noise output is said to be.
