Quieter tyres?

Can anyone advise please? I've searched the forum and can't find any reference to Battlax A41 tyres being quite noisy. My '21 Scrambler's tyres (A41s) start to howl and scream from about 15 m.p.h. So loud that I thought something was wrong with the bike. A high pitch sound, very penetrating. Pressures OK, fitted correctly. Noise stopson very new smooth road surface, about 3% of my commute! Otherwise, these tyres are amazing.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Can anyone recommend a tyre based primarily on lack of screaming resonance?

Thanks... hopefully :)

I went to Pirelli Scorpion II after the Metzelers were finished and not satisfiying.
Guess I'll stay with them when another replacement comes to date.
Quiet and a good dry/wet/pavement performance and a good medium gravel choice. A friend uses Dunlop Mutants and is happy with them on his SuperTeneré. A matter of look as well, I think.
