Expert Answer:

yes sound waves also gets refracted like the light waves.
Refraction is the change in direction of a wave due to a change in its median. Refraction of light is the most commonly observed phenomenon, but any type of wave can refract when it interacts with a medium, for example when sound waves pass from one medium into another or when water waves move into water of a different depth
