You're saying that sound would still just be a one-dimensional thing? I can't see why not, but you never know with this kind of thing. :-) So 4D guys, despite having 3D "eardrums", would still only have those drums oscillated in one dimension by the sound? So then, assuming the 4D guys could build a device capable of causing a device in the 3D world to vibrate, they would be able to play us 4D sounds. What the **** would they sound like? IB.
