My experience with wheel bearings is that it didn't matter much if you were turning, they always made noise... just a little more under turning load.
Could also be CV and/or loose axle-nut (splines rubbing in hub) issues.

He was right. One of the bearings was so stuck, they sent it out to a shop with a hydraulic jack to get it loose.
Looking at the old bearings on the shop bench, that one was just rusty orange all over -- it'd been rusting out for a long while, probably had new grease put onto it in that condition several times by the previous owner.
He got rid of the Subaru because he thought it was too noisy ...
No idea how long it's been bad, bought it used and have been slowly finding out that it involves eventually replacing all the parts.

Is the noise similar to this?:
It is definately a bearing noise. Sounds just like a wheel bearing going out, but not the right symptoms to be in the wheels. Will test drive again, I think I am beginning to hear some chattering, but not sure. need to recheck. Would not exactly call it a whine. I'm not sure what the difference is between a bearing noise and a whine...but not quite the same.
