Yep you won't believe the difference changing to a shoei . Or actually any helmet without the covers over the visor pivots.That's the problem with Arai helmets, they are easily the best helmet but also the noisiest.

I will definitely check out Schubert and Shoei. Any recommendations where to get personalized earplugs or general earplug recommendations?

As a last resort I will use Nitrouz’ tactic... ;-)

Thanks again for your help.
i got the Ducati Arai Corsair X helmet and i found it more noisy then my Ducati Arai Vector 2 helmet. mate of mine said it is normal as he found AGV GP pro R is more noisy as well, the more top shelve helmet is more noisy as you weren't supposed to wear it for long hours, for racing, 1-1.5 hrs max.

BTW, i never wear ear plug, enjoy the bike symphony mate!

thanks again for your help guys. Went to the store today and will likely get the Shoei X-Fourteen/X-Spirit III - Any experience with this helmet? Didn’t immediately strike me as being quiter than Arai but obv difficult to judge just from quickly putting it on.

Also tried the Schuberth SR2 but didn’t really fit.

Personalized plugs are on the way too...!

Hopefully can discuss Panigale soon again rather than helmets... ;-)

Just googled earplugs / motorcycle out of interest and came across this on CycleWorld..

"Say “motorcycle noise” and most people think of loud exhaust pipes. But savvy riders know there’s a much greater enemy—wind. Exposure to sound louder than 95 decibels (dB) can cause permanent hearing damage. Street riders on quiet bikes can expect wind roar to exceed 110 dB even inside a good helmet; racers can expect 115 dB. Fifteen minutes of 110dB a day, five days a week (can you say commute?) can cause up to a 30-percent hearing loss within a year."

The thing is, its not hearing loss at all frequencies so you may not even notice it initially..

What? Pardon?

I really noticed the noise of the V4s in stock form. I kept wondering how they got the bike past the sound checks to import it into the USA. By far the loudest stock bike I have owned. The wind noise seems average though and no buffeting.

Actually in my case the issue is the engine/exhaust. Wind noise i already bad on my previous bike but apparently bike stock noise is 107db already at fairly low revs

A good amount of noise coming from 1199/1299/V4 is engine noise. Always liked slip ons or a full system to drown out some of that engine noise and used ear plugs most of the time.

For those of you using custom earplugs, would you recommend soft (silicone) or hard (acryl or titanium)? Was at the store today but uncertain. Would have assumed that given the helmet is pressing onto the ear soft ones are better?
