With my baby we used to 'snap' our fingers either on the left or right side of his head - about 10/15 cm from his ears and he would turn to the side where the sound came from. As far as I know all baby's are sensitive to loud noises - so if he does not react to loud noises then you should seek advice from your Baby Clinic or local Paediatrician. Good luck
