This is normal behaviour for Outlook. It only makes a sound for the first email in a little while; it you get 10 in rapid succession, only the first will invoke a sound.

Not sure if there is a registry hack to alter this behaviour. Another workaround would be to create some inbox rules, specifying a sound be played whenever email arrives. You can even make it a different sound for each user.
