Trying to identify air vent type


I seem to have two types of air vents for the hvac on the second floor of my house. Attached are pictures of the two types. One vent has a round metal air flow control inside which apparently can be turned to control air flow. The second vent seems to have a plastic baffle which doesn't seem to be adjustable. This vent seems to make more noise when air is flowing and I'd like to reduce the noise. I don't know what this second type of vent is, or whether it should be replaced with the other type. Can anyone help me identify what this is? Thanks.

one is to supply air to the room and the second one is to return air back from the room to the furnace/air handler. not much you can do.

that's interesting. I'll have to check the other rooms to see if they are similarly vented.
