    I know I can mute it with the shift key but does anyone know a way to mute it all the time and without also holding down the shift key?

    I believe it's in the System Preferences "Sound" options.

    You would think that turning off the OS alerts would do it but it doesn't turn off the volume alert.

    I could swear it is in the Sound preferences, volume feedback or something.

    It indeed is, it's a checkbox.

    in the system preferences go to sound,
    then the Sound Effects tab, and uncheck "play feedback when sound is changed"


    i had been trying to figure it out too.

    I think SilentPanda means you can do it by checking "Play feedback when volume is changed" in the Soundeffect tab. You can locate it at Sound in System Preference.

    Ha ha! Thanks! I was also looking for this. The popping is so damn annoying when you've got headphones on, and it's on the higher volume settings.
