I know what you mean about the intake sound, not noise, more like music. With the closed helmet, I like the option of wearing sunglasses during the day, and being able to pocket them as night falls, for street riding. Polarized lenses cut sun glare on the asphalt quite well, but make lcd displays partially disapear. Off road, I prefer the open helmet with clear goggles, as the woods can get dark even in daylight. I can normally mitigate the sun with the peak. As far as wind noise. The right grip makes that disapear pretty quickly. Or is that just a perception?
