Used a Bell RS1 for years. Recently got the Bell Bullitt. Noisy, but looks great and I feel great wearing it. ─░mage

It's a simple, not expensive jet helmet. Over the years I tried different ones, all jet helmets. This one I like most. Fits well, is not too loud and if it's raining, the rain stays outside even if he falls upfront in combination with wind. In case of an accident, stop I don't want to think about it, but I prefer the open feel while riding. You can't have it all.
Also I own a Schubert J1, which can imitate an integral helmet and I used the Schubert over years. After a while I switched to the HJC, feels more comfortable to wear.

I wear an Arai RX-Q which feels comfortable, is reasonably light and I think is a high quality lid. Two questions I have are: have any of you worn the same helmet? and how does it compare to a Shoei RF or Schubert, particularly from a road noise perspective? If I ever fail to put my ear plugs in before setting out on the highway, my ears start ringing with the whistle of +60 mph airflow quickly. Just curious if competing helmets are better or worse as I'm only a season away from replacing it. Thanks, Tom

There may be helmets that are quieter, but none will protect you from hearing damage if you are consistently riding at 100 kph.

I had an Arai RX -Q for 4 years and this spring I replaced it with an Arai Signet X. The new Signet fits me better than the RX-Q and has MANY upgrades , less wind noise, Pinlock shield and more.

The Ferret turned me on to silicone putty earplugs. They have worked great for me both in comfort and in noise reduction. One tip: you may think that they will expand into your ear canal, but they tend to hold the shape into which you mold them. If you taper them too much they will not as much of the sound. They work better for me when I sort of press them into my ears with my thumbs.
