The reverse sound

What is that sound that stick shifts make in reverse? What causes it? Mine does it and I think it sounds sorta cool. Does the sound very from brand to brand?

Forward gears have helical cut teeth. The reverse gears in your transmission have straight cut teeth. It makes them noisier.
