LOL Kidding on ;)
I think it's just the same noise as any Hamster
Maybe a bit higher pitched?

My 3 week old WW is very vocal. Even while still in the petshop, he is one which screams alot. Not really scream.. sort of squeak but very high-pitched. He squeaked one time when i tried to hand feed a sunflowerseed but it fall instead on him! hehe He also made a sharp sound ( really like screaming) when i checked how he is doin' in his new found egg box home. I intend that egg box only as a place like labyrinth for him to explore but he lived there instead. I also have 3 Syrians but they are calmer compared to Kepps.

My lone female campells is a squealer - she screams in her cage by herself though is in no apparent pain and is in perfect health (she has done this since we got her), she is however very aggressive which is strange as her sisters are all friendly hams.
The two campells girls who live together make little noises sometimes - like a small breath but abit louder.
My robos make hardly any noises though my boy sometimes squeals if i have to pick him up.
I guess the best way i could describe the way most of the sounds actually sound is if you suck air in through your teeth.

However, the one Syrian Hamster I had almost never made any noise, besides the occasional squeak when she was scared after I first brought her home.

I have 2 chinese hams, they both like to make different noises, and lots of it.
Smudge chatters away constantly to me and when I talk back he loves it, he waits until I have finished and then continues to chatter, like a little conversation that I really don't understand but wish I could.
Stitch on the other hand is a squeaker, it's quite a high pitched tiny squeak, akin to that of a cartoon mouse. He specifically likes to squeak for attention, when I walk past his cage and don't say anything to him he squeaks as though to tell me off for my ignorance.

They barely ever make any noise but here are some:
- When Padgett was younger if he was in his cage and was really happy, like if I gave him a peanut and he was in a particularly good mood that day, he would run to his favourite corner and roll around making a strange fairly quiet guinea-pig like noise. He only did it a handful of times, but he just seemed so full of glee somehow. My other two dwarfs haven't ever done this.
- Once when Padgett was trying to steal food from Peppin's mouth, Peppin let out a very short but quite loud squeek that sounded almost exactly like a squeeky rubber duck! It didn't sound like it was actually from a real animal at all.
- Once when I took Padgett out while he was still quite tired and just wanted to be left alone and then clipped his nails (which he hates), he was very annoyed at me - so he made a clicking noise.
- When Pompadour went to the vets I opened the travel cage and she put her hand in - but before she even got close to him he literally screamed at her! A loud reasonably long screamy squeek. Didn't think a hamster could have made a noise like that either!
When you old them to your ears sometimes I hear the little whispery noises too, they are cute.
