Longer barrel with a lot of porting and a good paint match.

You will get the most change with a new barrel like the dw or 14" freak with the inserts

Not an upgrade, but something else to consider - you could try increasing dwell, and the lowering the HPR pressure. Won't make the marker quieter as such, but the report should be less sharp.

If you have a lot of money for upgades I think the best one is ego 10 =)
I'm talking with many etek3 owners before I bought it and read a lot of forums pages and result is - etek3 is a good marker in stock it has all what you can demand from marker with such price. And if you want get less kick, more accuracy, better efficient or OLED board you better buy ego becouse if you start buing upgades such ZickKit, Cure3 bolt, emortal board and other you will get worse marker for same money. Only upgrade I can advice you It is shaft 3 barrel back kit.

I wouldn't recommend the shaft kit because the smallest back it has is the .685 and that is pretty big for how small the paint is now. you would be a lot better off getting a full barrel kit or a .685 one piece barrel

follow uziel's advice

get a barrel with a smaller bore and more porting

maybe a hush bolt; didn't really make a marked difference in sound, in my experience

.685 is big if you are trying to underbore, but if you are overboring, its really not that far off. the reason i wouldn't suggest one for this users needs is because it still does not address the need for more porting, leading to a quiter sounding marker

Up dwell to get lowest possible pressure, use a good potted barrel. Mine doesn't sound nearly as bad anymore.

Adding inserts to the end of your barrel won't change sound signature that much.......

Im using a DW 14" barrel with inserts, cure 3 bolt, zick2 kit, the sound got a lil lower compared to the other eteks I was playing against.

I would like to compare me firing my etek3 and another stock one within seconds apart for I can really agree if its a big difference.

i have the pooty modded Cure3+ bolt, Zick2, and two Disruptive Paintball barrels (.678 and .688). I kept the stock parts (bolt, rammer and barrel) id like to do a comparison as well. BUT I have no solid way of measuring sound.

My Etek 3 is really quiet when I got all those upgrades done.

Also the Pooty Modded Cure 3 is supposed to work wonders too

Try messing with the dwell but if you dont know what your doing you might screw up your gun. And adjust the Lpr.
