Default [Q]Mute dock/undocking sound?

Does anyone know how to mute the sound the phone makes when docking and undocking in magnetic dock?
Loud as hell and kind of annoying.

Thanks!

If you can't find any option to turn it off. You can remove the .ogg file with RootExplorer
I did that on my other devices a few years ago to get rid of a round I didn't like

Don't take this for granted as Im on a custom rom but the file or files to remove is
/system/media/audio/UI/Dock.ogg and /system/media/audio/UI/Undock.ogg

download Sony Smart connect off the playstore.

When you insert headphones, link bluetooth or connect to dock it will open and prompt what you want to do.
You can make an app open when you place on a dock, or sounds etc...

Huh, mine doesn't make a beep, and it has never done it either. Just checked it just in case with the volume on, and it doesn't make any sound. I haven't deleted anything that should disable it and I can't remember unticking anything. Hmmm...

I did not have it in .510 but since .257 it's there. I'm on stock.

Hi i have the exact opposite problem, i lost the docking sound, don't know when, maybe after updating to 4.3 ? can't remember

I want that dock sound, the audio files Superuser mentioned above are still there but i can't find any option to enable them again.


Thanks
