which helmet do you use?

hi, I'm looking for a good helmet.
Especially for mitigating the excessive noise.
What's your experience?

Shoei RF1200. Pretty awesome in all respects for a road helmet.

Shoei rf 1100. I like it, there is wind noise but I wear ear plugs. Long rides are soooo much better with ear plugs.

Shoei GT-Air here. Like it except it has a vent on the chin so I can't mount my GoPro there

Quiet except on some bikes I get a low frequency booming. Not too bad on the Gixxus though.

Bell RS-1 Emblem. suits my big head the best. I also us a HJC CL-16/17. Both helmets are the best fit for my head, Bell is probably best for reduced wind noise but I use earplugs, so . . . meh!

Arai chaser and HJC rpha st, very comfy on my noggin, but i also wear plugs so can't really comment on wind noise.

We're here for a good time, not a long time.
