Default Humming from 40-50MPH

Hello,
I am experiencing a low audible hum when traveling between 40-50MPH in my 2002 SSEi. The car drives fine otherwise, getting great gas mileage and the ride is wonderful. All fluid levels are good. Could this problem be anything else besides the wheel bearings? Braking is also fine.

Any ideas?

Might be a wheel bearing. Shift in in neutral (above 40) and if sound stays consistent, likely not the drivetrain.
