That works for laptops, not desktops.

I only place the headphones on my head when I want to listen to
something. When I expect a sound. Beeps are unexpected.
On my laptop (and probably most modern laptops) the
"PC speaker" is not a physical piece of hardware on the
motherboard: it is purely virtual, and its audio is piped through
the main speakers/headphone jack/audio channel *regardless of
system volume*. So If you followed your normal routine with my
hardware, one day when you were wearing your headphones with the
volume down low or muted, you would accidentally hit the backspace,
up, or left arrow key in a GTK text view and there would be an
incredibly loud angry jarring beep right your eardrum at max
