I am fortunate to have lived long enough to have heard both the Concorde and the B-58 takeoff with me at roughly the same distance*, by far the B-58 was nosier.

* With the B-58 I was standing about a quarter mile away and with the Concorde I was in the cockpit of a 727 in the left (facing seat) seat with the DV window open and was actually closer to the Concorde than I was to the B-58.
