This! Don't suffer from tinnitus like I do. By the time you notice the persistent ringing in your ears, it's too late...and damaged/destroyed hair cells in the inner ear don't grow back. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.

I'm with Steamboat and Hank on the adjustment. I have an Icon and Changing shields and pushing up on the shield causes the side mounts to get out of alignment with the opening in the side of the helmet. I can adjust mine and it will keep any wind from getting in. I believe if you adjust yours it will stop the noise.

Ear plugs are always a given. I'm surprised when anyone doesn't wear them.

do you have the visor set to vent? There are three positions on the lock Lock>neutral>Vent....the visor sill cause a whistle on vent.

I will look into this seriously. Would hate for my hearing to get any worse than it is already
