I've also flown both many times and found the A350 to be quieter during cruise and landing but the 787 to be quieter during takeoff. The A350 is simply louder on takeoff due to the higher power engines (I'd imagine). The 787 during cruise and landing just has this annoying high-pitched whine. Bother...
