Startup sound is really great to hear for the first few days but it’s really annoying to hear the same sound again and again. If you don’t like to change the startup sound then you can easily get rid of it by simply disabling the startup sound in the Control Panel.
The startup sound was probably introduced when Windows PC would take a few minutes to boot to the desktop. The startup sound would indicate the user that the PC is ready to use. Since PCs running Windows 7 boot under a minute or two, the startup sound is not required for most users.
