Different sound tone to Gator blades

I just switched to them from the factory lift blades on my Lazer, ran them for the first time today. Idk if it's because I was freezing all day and was hearing things, but it seems like they make a totally different sound when spinning as opposed to how normal blades sound. Has anyone else encountered this?

I do have to say that they are seriously amazing with shredded dry leaves & cut perennials into dust! Almost cuts down the volume of how much is hauled out in half!!

Yes, the sail or fins of lawn mower blades create sound, it's mostly a humming sound, different mower blades create different hums.

Those teeth on the back make tons of noise. I'll run my hustler with regular blades for a day and the next day run my Great Dane with gator g6's and the Dane sounds like a frickin airplane taking off. Granted, the Dane has 3 18" blades and the hustler has an 12" and a 24" or something, but still.
