HONDA Civic 2002 drive issues

Hi guys,
My Girl got a problem with her 2002 Honda Civic EX Coupe.
I try to find the issue in order to help her and fix it.
While driving the car is making a real loud and bad noise kinda like a airplane.
It is directly connected to the driving speed. So the frequency of the noise gets higher if you drive faster and lower by slowing down. The Volume level on the other hand is pretty consistent no matter what speed I drive.
When I accelerate hard the noice is gone until I let off.
I was guessing on drive shaft bearing but she is telling me the noise exists now since thousands of miles so I would say a bearing would have died long time ago.
There is nothing to feel at the steering wheel at all no vibrating no shaking nothing. Its steering easy and the car is running perfectly straight.
Im out of ideas to be honest.

You guys got any idea???

possibly worn CV joints

If the noise stops on accel.I would say it is inside the trans,but usually Hondas make noise on accel and are quiet while coasting.
It, hard to say without hearing it.
