Is campy 11 drivetrain inherently noisier?

Been a campy user for literally decades and recently upgraded to Campy SR 11 (2015) from Record 10.
For the life of me, just can't seem to get the drivetrain whisper quiet throughout range on the new 11 stuff. This is especially true for big ring in front and the upper range of the rear cassette - last 3-4 cogs - not including the very last.
Now is this something that can be tuned out or does it take a long time to break-in (have about 1000km on this drivetrain)?

Thoughts, experiences, suggestions as I just hate a bike that makes noise.
It only hurts if you think.

10 speed record was immaculate in set-up, running, feel and reliability and sets an incredibly high bar for 11 speed.

My experience is that 11 speed is more particular.

Have Record '15 ( but older 5 arm crank ) - I didn't noticed any difference in comparison to Veloce, Centaur and Chorus '14 in being louder. It's more quiet than Ultegra 6800 & Sram Force which I had/ have .

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)
