Anyone use a Windjammer or like minded product on helmet?

Looking at the Windjammer 2 to put on my helmet to reduce some of the wind noise, anyone use one, or something similar?

Looks like it should help. I made my post before the link went up so had no clue what the Windjammer was... I had a Windjammer on my 82 GS 550L........http://kz900.com/kz/vetter/fairing/ss/SSl.jpg

Oh yes, that's what I think of when Windjammer is mentioned. Regarding the one on Amazon, it would play hell trying to open my modular helmet chin bars!

I get lots more noise IF I 'crack' my visor. Right now, w/ my 'winter' windscreen on, I'm looking about 2" above the top of it.
I wear foam ear-plugs, and for music... I sing to myself (at least - I call it SINGING...!).

Seems like the only Minimal complaints with the thing are issues of increased fogging. I think I may get one, but wait until the weather warms a bit like in spring.

In All honesty, I dont listen to my music often, its kind of a novelty I suppose since I just got the helmet which gives me the option.. BUT I would like to be able to answer a phone call if I get one. My son always manages to call me when i'm on a ride. And If I don't get his call, then he's hard to get a hold of.

Wearing contour foam earplugs takes away the wind noise and any tinny sound out of the SENA speakers and allows me to enjoy music and hear the phone.

I use ear plugs, and have no issues listening to music and BT headset with my friends.

I ride to get lost and find my way back.
