I've noticed a few times that the engine puts out a "wooo" sound on. Each time I've let off the gas and the sound goes away. I don't know if it is the ANC adjusting or what. It wasn't that loud, but definitely present.

 

Just adding a data point here. It isn't worth mentioning to the dealer. I think what folks are hearing on this thread is a lot louder.

Mine is the same.  Happens about 2200 RPM.  Go above or below and it goes away.  Mine is not that bad and not always there.  As you said I think some are much more noticeable.

Except on long highway trips I don't have the RPM gauge up, so I don't know where it shows up.

I know, as I said, I use it on long highway trips.

i have the drone/woo sounds right at 2350-2450 RPM on the scan gauge usually just under load like going up an on ramp or something if I keep it steady at that RPM. 
Usually don't notice it much with the radio on. lol

FYI apparently Wizzurp has found a solution:

I pulled the connector he shows but my C-Max doesn't make the noise much in the summer.

Sometimes I drive with the windows down and hear this noise, probably not describing it right but to me it sounds to me like a particular exhaust note..like how they tune the exhaust sound of the Mustang.  I don't think it's intentional, probably irritates the ANC in just the right way at a certain RPM with the windows down, etc.  I have heard it inside the car with the windows up too when ICE comes on within certain RPM range.  I just take it to be part of the way the car works.

 

Maybe it just seem annoying because the car is otherwise so quiet, still not as annoying as wind buffeting noise, and no where as annoying as that rental car I drove with the 4 cylinder engine mated to a CVT that kept pretending to make noises like it was "shifting" - that thing had as much noise and vibration as a prop plane..spoiled from driving hybrids.
