Will 3 80mm fans @ 32 or 34db be very loud/noisy/annoying? (i know this is opinion, but still)

Is there anything you could compare the noise generated by the aforementioned fan combo?

And, in your opinions, would that be particularly noisy?

fan noise isn't additive, 2 32db fans wouldn't be 64db it would likely only be 33-34db, I have 5 near silent 80mm 30cfm fans going and together they aren't as loud as one of my 47cfm 80mm fans
