Apparently, no.

On the S3 there's limited control over the beeps, on the S1 it's apparently not present.

Presumably if you messed with the control board's firmware code, you could disable it.

If you don't mind (mostly) doing away with beeps altogether, try taping off the buzzer (it's the black cylindrical bit with a hole in the middle at the corner of the board), or desoldering it completely (can try sticking an LED across its pads if you want to keep some form of feedback).

Thx. I'll definitely need a better soldering iron for that one!

Case closed.

Luckily the beeps on the S1 are nothing like the S3, when mine beeps for a period of over 10 seconds i just flip the jumper to reset and it that usually sorts it out.

IIRC you can't turn off the sound in the software,  but if you really wanted to you could probably remove the buzzer from the circuit board.
