Louder engine noise in 2nd 4th and 6th gear

Hello!
Today I noticed my engine noise is louder when in 2nd 4th and 6th gear on manual transmission. It feels strange, because noise changes even with clutch engaged or when the engine is idling. It happened after some offroad driving with 4wd engaged, noticed when I was on a highway again.

Did anyone have any problems like that with manual?

Sorry, was on a hurry and forgot to mention that the car is 2010 JK and engine noise only changes inside the car, like when you open a window and you can hear it louder.
2nd, 4th and 6th gears somehow lets more engine noise inside.

Just speculation, but the foam donut under the shifter might be deteriorated or out of place. Having the shifter in the lower position might create a gap, letting more noise in.
