Default 1997 Es300 Weird Oscillating noise 35-50 MPH

Its a sound that isn't really heard until I hit 35 MPH, and gets softer after 50 MPH. Its heard with or without load. Here is the video of the sound:

Make sure it's turned up and you have a decent audio system or set headphones.

Shouldn't you turn the stereo down when making a video to demonstrate a weird sound to your audience?
I couldn't hear anything but the engine revving and the music.

Difficult to hear, but based on your description it could be a tire that isn't balanced properly or wheel bearings. I'd get the tires balanced first.
