Unfortunately they don’t like loud noises at all. Guinea pigs like a nice settled environment and get startled very easily at any unforeseen noises.

This means that any bangs, blaring noise or such like, does not go down well with them and they are likely to run off and hide.

This is not to say that they don’t mind mild noise. If they are around your family for instance in the home, they may well enjoy the chatter and the chaos of family life.

But its the sudden loud noises that they won’t like at all.
