A bad wheel bearing is always noisy. As you drive the car, steer it like you are changing lanes( to shift the load on the bearing) and listen for a change of pitch in the noise. If it is bad it will change pitch. Wheel bearings have to be REAL bad to cause vibration; are you sure you don't have a bent rim/ bad tire?
