Can anyone recommend a QUIET floor/standing or box fan?

We need something in our home office that moves a good amount of air, but the mics on our phones are very sensitive and I don't want it picking up the sound of the fan.

I'm willing to pay a premium if it's a truly quiet fan, but I don't want to blow a bunch of cash on something that turns out to be too loud, then have to deal with returning it, trying a different one, etc.

Generally, the smaller the blade, the more revolutions it needs to push air which means the more noise it would make.

Next, as the blades rotate, the whole body will vibrate--anything not sturdy will tend to make noise.

So you're looking for something with big blades, with firm casing/housing.
