As reported at the first blast test, The sound was heard as far as Denver, and the blastwave and heat were likened to standing in front of a blast furnace! Sadly the sound recordings of the time are terribly distorted due to the intensity of the blast!

The initial impact you don't hear, either that or it's a loud ringing.

Depends on how close you are, if you are very close you will get burned up.
