I just got back from Revzilla where I purchased this helmet. This is my second try with a modular, the last one a HJC Symax which I hated, so much so I went back to a ff for the last 3 years. I switched over my Sena before the ride home which was around 80 miles, and I could hear my music and my wife with no trouble, but it is slightly louder than my ff. I only have the Symax to compare it to but the Scorpion is much more quiet than the HJC. I wear eyeglasses and having the sun shade and being able to put the helmet on without taking my glasses off is wonderful. I felt about 5% more buffeting, riding a S10 with a Givi airflow. With the ff I have almost no buffeting. I can handle that. Looking forward to getting some miles with this helmet.
