Default Loud whining noise from front wheels

My 99' s80 is making a loud whining noise from the front of the car. it almost sounds like a turbo but there is no turbo on my car. it happens when im accellerating. i talked to a mechanic he said it sounds like it needs new wheel bearings. Not sure wut to do right now, so if someone can tell me how a bad wheel bearing sounds and can give me a better idea on what to do. thanks
