Is it just me, or did anybody else notice the irony in a 'stealth plane' being loud enough to be compared to a Phantom, while in full burner?

Unfortunately, I have never heard a Phantom, and I doubt I ever will, however I have heard that at full power, it hurt your ears even with ear protection. I don't know how true that is, but if it is true, then saying that it is a pretty loud aircraft is quite an understatement. So why is something so loud being implemented in to a stealth aircraft?

Also, how is the engine going to cope? How many maintenance hours will this engine need per flying hour (approximately)?
