Hungarian sounds reasonably unique to me, although it has elements that resemble a lot of other languages as well. It feels strange to encounter a language with a similar rhythm and intonation as Finnish and Estonian in the middle of Europe. But of course its words and sounds are very different from the Finnic languages.
The Hungarian /a/ is very cute sounding, because in Finnish kids pronounce our own /a/ like that if they're pouting or being coy or cutesey (or pretending to be). On the other hand, /á/ is a loud vowel a bit in the same way as Finnish /ä/. It just... sounds loud. And expressive. When Hungarians say /á/ I kind of imagine them waving their hand like an Italian, emphasizing the syllable.
So then when in speech these two vowels pop up after each other at steady intervals, I can hear it as a bit of an expressive roller coaster (if I switch off my filters). Cutsey, slightly aggressive, cutesey, slightly aggressive. Well, it's just something I entertain myself with when people speak Hungarian around me and I've lost all sense of what the topic is.
The "soft" /l/ in Hungarian also adds to the cuteness factor.
So my overall impression of Hungarian is that it sounds cute, in a positive sense.
