Scroll right to the top of the PlayStation homepage and shift to the right side, where you’ll find the settings cog next to your PS profile. Select settings and then scroll down to the Sounds Tab, located closer to the bottom of all the options, just below your device storage. 

Once you’ve entered the Sounds options, scroll down to the last option, Volume. Here you’ll see the settings for headphones, controller speaker, and the related settings, which will have the Beep sound below them. Scroll to the Beep sound and press X. Once you’ve selected the option, you’ll notice the toggle next to the Mute Beep sound. Press X to turn the toggle off. If the toggle is white, it’s on. If the toggle is grayed out, it’s off.

If you for some reason enjoy the Beep sound, you can always adjust the sound settings by turning it low, medium, or high. High is the standard setting that the console comes with. Sony released a major update in the early parts of September, which included the Beep sound update and many new features.
