The reason you hear noise is that raw PCM can be any sample format,
and the sample format the PCM device is set to is not matching the
data you're sending to it.  The default sample format expected by a
Linux PCM device depends on which kernel API you are using as well as
details of the specific kernel build (that is, there is no reliable

Command line players are able to set the specific sample format
parameters for playback (otherwise they could not function) and most
will expose these controls via command line switches.
