Right I bought one and after a couple of thousand miles use I can now state for sure it's much quieter then my old interceptor. Where before I was struggling to hear all but the loudest music at legal(ish) motorway speeds I can now hear the quieter sections of "Dark side of the Moon" at erm... quite a bit faster. In fact I did the 6 hours back from Wales pretty much non stop and it was good and quiet all the way back.
With the top front vents open it did get a little noisier but even then it was still way quieter than my previous Shoei Interceptor helmet
