I have an HJC Multitech helmet. I'm trying to reduce wind noise and improve the sound of the headset. Thought about going to a Shoei Multitech. Does anyone know if the improvement will be worth the money? I also heard the regular J&M speakers won't fit in the Shoei helmets well because there is less clearance. J&M said this saddened them which is why they designed the "Thin Line" speakers. I'm not sure if the thin line speakers will help either.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

tnx

I have several kinds / brandsof helmets including Shoeiand I can say that the full-face and flip-face like your Multitech are the noisiest helmets for wind noise. By far the open-face or 3/4 helmets are the quietist. If you have a chance to try a open-face helmet,without any added face shield, just to hear the difference .... I will bet you will also find this to be true. This goes beyond logic in my opinion, but is truly the case.
For the least wind noise I can wear my 3/4 helmets, but I prefer the added protection of the full face for most of my riding.:action:
With all the discussion of wind buffeting and taller windshields or air deflectors... I can't help but think that some may just have a helmet issue!!!:baffled:
