Habit that really shouldn't be necessary
Everytime im hooked as survivor i press my Xbox home button so i don't have the hear the loud ass screaming. As killer there's really nothing you can do and you can't just turn the volume down because of how important sound is.
I would KILL for a way to turn down the just specifically the hook screaming. There are a lot of other loud things in the game (like the demogorgons roar) but this is the only one that really serves no purpose
