Regulate the angle of the downspout

Adjusting the angle of the downspout is one of the simplest fix that involves using a longer clip or spacer to move the bottom side of the downspout more away from the house. By doing so, you will be stopping the water from falling directly onto the elbow joint, rather it will hit the side and trickle down quietly.

Exchange the metal elbow with a noiseless fixture

Changing the metal elbow with plastic or Vinyl should lower the sound rather than act as an echo producing chamber.
Insulate the downspout

Insulating the downspout always works as you remove the vibration, thereby dampening the sound. For this purpose you need to wrap the downspout with some insulation material like the foam insulation, whereas using spray foam will work equally well in this situation.

Use a speciality product

If you search for plumbing product on the Internet, there are products specifically made for reducing the noise created by a noisy gutter. These plumbing products are usually made from a soft, flexible foam that can easily be pushed into the opening and fixed in a place.
