Low pitched sounds correspond to low frequency sound waves while high frequency sounds correspond to high frequency sound waves.

Both sound waves travel similar to each other but they can appear different when hearing them.

If you do appear to hear the high and low pitch sounds different then it's because of what's known as the doppler shift.
