Default Bad Wheel bearing?

What are symptoms of bad wheel bearings? I have replaced one before on a suzuki swift, how ever it was quite obvious it was bad - there was excessive play in the wheel when on the left and some noise.

My wheel has no play but i have this loud voom voom voom noise when driving over roughly 50km/h. It sounds like excessive road noise. The noise is pretty constant after increasing speed from 50km/h.

I couldn't feel any play in my wheels, noise still there in neutral/clutch in, doesn't matter about engine RPM, seems to be wheel speed related.

Noise almost goes away when turning right (at speeds 50km/h+).

Noise is the same when turning left (at speeds 50km/h+).

Things I have tried;
Swapped out tyres with another used set - no difference.
Swapped out right hand side front axle with a spare as suspected noise was coming from there - no difference.

Could it be a wheel bearing?
How can I be sure?
