accepted Is it possible to reduce the sound, when two metal objects collide (perhaps with some coating) without reducing the rigidity of the surface?

That's a cool idea. Still it an interesting physical question, how to derive this relationship between soundness and rigidity.

It's a helpful link. Still looks like most of the materials are soft

I'm sorry for not mentioning all the constraints. Basically I can't change anything dramatically. I can't change size substantially. Ball bearings are quarter of inch in diameter now. I can potentially decrease their size but not increase. I can change the form of the dents. (They are conical right now. So sphere enters the cone)
