Sounds like you have a vacuum leak in the brake booster. With your foot off the pedal, no vacuum should be leaking.

I think I know the noise he's talking about, mine have done it since I've had the car and they work fine. Nothing needs to be replaced lol

I had something like this once and it was a vacuum leak, the dealer replaced the power brake unit.
Pinpoint the source of the noise under the hood.
