Dear Mr XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

Though the information you supplied is limited and sounds are best heard than read, I would like to give best possible explanation for the same.

The sounds that are associated with breathing in are usually lound scratchy or harsh sounds and they are called stridor like sound. Such sound may be audible all over chest or stomach. This sound is produced due to disturbance produced by secretions or pathology in airways, to the air breathed in.
Common disturbances are related to nose block, throat secretions, airway infections or low calcium situations.
Sounds that are produced due to breathing out are different, they are soft and more musical.

I hope this answers your question. please accept the same if no further queries..
