If you "zoom out" a bit in the man page you're reading, you'll see that 
you're reading about the functionality of the readline library linked with 

That implies that this setting must be made in your "~/.inputrc" file. Note 
also that this setting is effected with the "set" command, so the line you 
need to add to your .inputrc file is this:

set bell-style none

Lastly, note that depending on your audio hardware, you might be able to 
make a separate adjustment for the headphone port (i.e., assuming there's a 
separate output channel for your headphones).
