"noisier" or not it all depends on the speaker. but somehow, i seemed to find "poorer" places to have the "harshest and noisiest" sounding languages though. I think every language can sound beautiful, but depends on how the majority of the speakers speak it. I tend to think and notice people with status and class speak prettier "dialects" than people who work on farms or are uneducated.

even mandarin, i've heard very pleasant mandarin vs very harsh mandarin.

anyone agree?

As to Hakka, I've had many friends who are hakka, same thing; some are very pleasant sounding, others are a bit harsh.
