Spider-Man Miles Morales sound samples locations: How to unlock the sound samples challenge set and the location of every sound sample explained

The exact location of every sound sample in Spider-Man Miles Morales.

Once you've unlocked the sound samples, you can explore Manhattan, finding these special noises to unlock the Back to the Beginning side mission, which, in turn, will earn you the Purple Reign Suit.

Below you can find the exact location of every sound sample in Spider-Man Miles Morales, because, although, you can easily find them on the map, you'll still need to know what is creating the noise.
