6'4, 220ish here. Stock screen is fine. I didn't see a good description regarding your buffeting but, you need to distinguish between normal everyday wind blast and buffeting. Some new riders consider buffeting to be the increasing resistance they feel on their body as their speed increases. True buffeting is a rapid, rhythmic, (think "fluttering") of the head/helmet. Those who have experienced it, know it. It happened to me on a buddy's FJR, except in the very upper limit of the power windscreen, and on my VTX when I installed a batwing fairing, regardless of height or angle. I ended up selling the fairing because of it.
As for noise, higher rated ear plugs (they should have a decibel rating on the package; the higher the number, the more noise suppressing they will be), quieter helmet (notice I didn't say "better" helmet, because the two are not necessarily interchangeable).
Finally, it's a motorcycle. Ride it, enjoy it, both the wind and the sounds. Otherwise, I hear Cadillacs are nice and quiet.
