I've been running this vector for years, but I've come to the conclusion that I should have gotten a size smaller and am in the market for a new full face want something quiet as I also have an AGV AX8 DS I love for looks and slower blasts around town. Any recommendations on a super quiet helmet??

After using the new lid for a couple of hundred miles, my view is that it is lightweight, very comfortable, the drop down tinted visor is great. The ventilation system works superb, the peripheral vision is really good. It is quieter than my other helmets as in i don't get the horrid buffering noise that hurts your ears at speed, but it isn't as quiet as I expected for the price!!
I think there is a compromise between good ventilation and noise pollution, you can't have one without the other.

I bought a decent AGV and use BT ear plugs. They block wind noise and I log lots of hwy miles and enjoy tunes/podcasts. My lid (Horizon) is ready for speakers and comms but don't think the convienience trade off will be worth noise at speed.

I have fitted a bluetooth headset into the GT Air, it already had recess for speakers, I use it for the sat nav and occasional passenger, works well even at speed, I should try some tunes through it, but its only cheap system and speakers not the best quality. It would ruin some good tunes + feel i could loose some concentration if i was listening to tunes.

Good tunes turn a good ride into a great ride in my book. Beats white noise of 80mph wind blowing through your lid.
