I don’t remember adjusting power very often in cruise. You just set the thrust levers to the max cruise donuts on the EICAS and the aircraft settles in at M0.83 and that’s what we flew at cruise.
Noise level is mostly airflow noise. You do hear the engines when applying takeoff thrust, but once you get to cruise there isn’t much noise from the engines.
