Waves involve the transport of energy without the transport of matter. Waves are a disturbance that travels through a medium, transporting energy from a source location to another location without transporting matter. Sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium - gas, liquid, solid.
