Shrill piece-placement sound

Hello,
first of all I would like to say: great job with the HTML interface!

The only thing that's a bit annoying right now is the shrill piece-placement sound. It hurts your ears when you use headphones. It is also not realistic at all. (Realistic would be *no* sound most of the time, since most of the time in real life, people just silently move the piece.)

I would like to suggest replacing it with a more muffled sound that won't hurt your ears. An example would be the lofi sound of shogidojo 24's java applet, or a muffled sound like chess websites such as chess.com or lichess.org use.

I'd love to hear what you guys think of this idea!
Greetings

well, yes! Especially the byoyomi warning is a must, but getting audibly notified when your opponent made a move is also extremely convenient.

Do you really need sound for online chess?
