Recently interest in calculations of the speed of sound in QCD under conditions like constant temperature $c^2_T$ or constant entropy per net baryon number $c^2_s$ arose in the discussion of experimental results coming from heavy ion experiments. It has been stressed that the former in particular is closely related to higher order cumulants of conserved charge fluctuations that are calculated in lattice QCD. We present here results on $c^2_T$ and $c^2_s$ and compare results at vanishing strangeness chemical potential and vanishing net strangeness number with hadron resonance gas model calculations. We stress the difference of both observables at low temperature arising from the light meson sector, which does not contribute to $c^2_T$.
