There is no sound for the science application, and one will not be provided by SETI@Home as the novelty effect would wear off for many users and wouldn't be worth the programming effort and added compatibility issues.

If you really want to hear something similar to the sounds of space, tune your radio to AM and move the dial in between stations. Nothing more than static like you assumed.
