N5R2401 is from a radio with 2 power levels (a UV-5R variant)
N5R3409 is from a radio with 3 power levels (a BF-F8HP variant)

The BEEP bug was the last known user detectable bug a UV-5R variant.
It was introduced with the N5R-20 firmware back in the summer of 2014
. It fixed in September of 2014.

As long as the radios have one of the N5R2xxx or N5R3xxx firmware
versions, you aren't going to notice any difference between firmware

Except for the fact that CHIRP is the only way a consumer can
determine the "real" firmware version of these UV-5R and BF-F8HP
variants, this discussion has nothing to do with CHIRP and should
probably me moved to a Baofeng/UV-5R related forum.
