I honestly couldn't tell a difference without mine...even went and picked my dad up to test my opinion (without telling him that's what I was doing) and took him around the block. When I asked if he thought my truck sounded any different and his response was "no...why, is it quieter or something?" I figured I was right...no real difference.
And he's getting to be old and crotchety enough that I could count on him to tell me if it was even slightly louder in the cab.
Outside the truck I couldn't say. Never heard it from outside before I lost the muffler and haven't heard it since I did. Mine's a 6 spd and I tend to shift it at or around 2k RPM the majority of the time, but it might be a tick louder above those engine speeds...I just don't run it up there all that often to know what it sounded like before.
EDIT: Mine does have a cat still...and I'm sure that stands to muffle it some compared to a truck with a truly straight pipe.
