Little information. The song of Rufous Sabrewing is described as "varied, strong, squeaky chipping and chattering, also short, rich, warbled phrases" (Howell and Webb 1995).
None reported, other than the usual "whirring" sound of the wings in flight, audible (as in most hummingbirds) at close range.
