New helmet needed, N44?

getting into riding again and I'm looking at the Nolan N44 with N-com. I want a quiet helmet that I can stream the radio into during my 65 mile commute. pros/cons, other suggestions?

I've been researching helmets and the n44 is not quiet from what I've been reading. The N91 is high on my list.

Nolan N44

I just purchased a Nolan N44 on Hi-Viz orange. I think the helmet is superbly made. It's a real step up in quality from my previous Fulmer helmet. The N 44 is a light, comfortable, well ventilated helmet. The vents on top of the helmet do make it much noisier than I expected. But it's in different kind of noise from my Fulmer. It's a lot more bearable. I started using earplugs after I got headaches from long rides. So the Nolan with earplugs is very very quiet obviously. I am not sorry that I bought this helmet. It looks awesome and it feels like I got my moneys worth. I would totally recommend anyone to purchase it.

The ventilation of this helmet together with a huge eye port made it totally worthwhile.

not N-44, but I did buy an N43 on super discount. It's a little small with the chinbar and I can't bring myself to use the peak/goggles but I do like it for easy, comfortable and simple commuting.

Quiet? NOT without the chinbar.
