Personally would avoid the moulded earplugs. They are so bloody uncomfortable. I paid about 60 quid for a set then threw them in the bin. Best bet is a big box of good disposables. Hygenic and comfy!

Try this one

I also have an Aria - They fit my head and yes they are Bl%%dy Noisey

It replaced a BMW helmet - That was quiet, in fact you could wear it without ear plugs if you wanted.

Previous helmet was an Arai RX7 which I found noisy. Now use a Shoei X-Spirt which is a bit quieter, much more stable at speed 100MPH+ (it was on a private road, Officer) and just as comfy.

If your looking for 'super quite', try a schuberth

I have an Arai Viper GT (italian flag obviously) and it's not as noisy as the old version Astro R, but I do occassionally wear moulded ear plugs, try Ultimate Ear protections, they do a lot of their customers mouldings at bike shows, but you tend to laugh and move, so they don't get moulded perfectly, tip for you, look away from people when they are moulding them! They are on 02083094385. They will do plain mouldings, or ones for ear phones etc, I have found them comfy enough and they do cut down the noise very well.

An Ear Nose & Throat specialist told me of a company that supply world class musicians with Earplugs, but I can't remeber the name.:doh:

....cause when you get to my age you won't be able to hear a thing.

Protect your hearing guys, cause you wont get it back when it goes....or so the specialist told me :bawl:

By the way, does anyone know where you can store one of these on a Tornado?

Hey Col, I could maybe get it made in tartan to match the travel rug I use to cover my legs in the winter. I just hate those cold mornings on the bike :rolling:

AGV Stealth, but I wear ear plugs all the time now Didn't for a couple of years and now suffering with Tinatus its like having mosquetos in the each ear all the time:mad:

So guy's suggest you wear earplugs all the time unless you like constant buzzing in your head:(

I have a Roof Daytona which is superbly light, and quiet. Also the 'fighter pilot' style visor opening means I can glance down at the instruments, without actually moving my head. Side vision however seems more restricted than my AGV. Of course, I wear whichever best suits my outfit :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

quiet lid

Hi, i have a Schuberth S1 pro and find it comfortable and quiet, mind you the lids i had before that wern't the best so i dont have a good comparison. I bought some of those ear defenders that you mould yourself, their about £16but i didn't find them very good so i just go for the disposable ones on long runs.

Laurence that is the stupidest looking pipe i've ever seen.. You'll be asking if there is a Official Benelli Rack to put your slippers on next..

I use a Suome Lid. its comfy and lite but not that quiet so i use the disposible ear plugs. You can buy them by the box off of ebay.

I previously had an AGV XR2, then replaced with AGV Ti-Tech Evo which, whilst slightly quieter, is still not great for wind noise. I would also recommend Ultimate Ear Protection ear plugs, easy to fit and best of all they're actually designed to only cut out the unwanted frequencies of noise so you can still hear the lovely benelli noises without any pesky wind (also you can still hear people talking through them with only a small reduction in volume!). They can even add filters to let in even more of the particular frequency you want. When I got mine they initially didn't fit quite right (they made them slightly further into my ears than the mould suggested), but they rectified that very quickly and now I hardly notice I've got them in.

Quiet helmets

I agree with Lost Soul. I have a BMW Sport Integral. It is without doubt the quietest and lightest helmet that I have ever owned. They retail at about £255 but you can often pick them up cheaper. Best regards
