Default pneumatic rifle gunshot noise

How does the noise of a pneumatic (= compressed-air-powered) rifle being fired compared with the noise of an ordinary explosive-powered rifle with the same caliber and muzzle velocity being fired?

I shoot a 22 cal. air rifle in my back yard,And believe me it is not as loud as a 22 cal. rim fire.
