You don't know "whistling" or helmet noise. Back in the early '70's, I bought a new Honda to ride to college classes. Helmet was on order, so I duct taped an aluminum collander to my head for a helmet....could hear me whistling for miles down the road.

The only problem with Shoei is that it has an egg shape shell, and the only place where the whistle noise comes from is right under/behind your ear, where the jaw line starts. So depending on your jaw line structure compared to the helmet's structure, a wind passage is created right under/behind your ear. That's why the whistle gets louder when you turn your head cause wind is flowing in directly thru that passage. What I do is I wear a Bandana which covers my whole ears as well, blocking a direct path of wind thru that passage behind the jaw line. Try doing that. On the street I try to avoid ear plugs, cause I want to hear stuff around for my safety. I love shoei helmets btw, got 3 myself.

P.S. lot of people don't know about this problem and blame the vents or the visor not tighten enough. Try this... next time you are out riding above 40mph (where you get the problem), put your left hand index finger behind your jaw-line, you will notice the reduction of sound. make sure you do this when it's safe to do so. Good luck.

Yup, agreed. That's why Arai too has different helmets for different head shape, like Arai Profile is different than Arai Vector, one is more round than the other... So before you buy a Helmet do your research.

+1 for arai, but any helmet will do this if it doesn't fit properly.
