My hearing is shot as well but the wind noise did it to me. Much worse than the exhaust. By the time I started wearing earplugs, too late.

I'd take the poll but there are only 2 choices. Too loud and too quiet. Don't like either one.

Sticking my head in the speakers at Black Sabbath gigs two nights in a row, plus a lifetime of grinding welds without earmuffs ( they're for girls right?)
As well as standing next to Top Fuel Hemi startup invite pits at the drags and not covering my ears cos I was drunk ten foot tall and bulletproof take their toll on hearing.
The last straw was Radio Birdman (google em)
Playing live at the Triffid over a year ago, my left ear copped a real flogging.
It was so fkn LOUD the vocals were unintelligible mush!
A bit like my brain was afterwards!
Radio Birdman!

Hardcore Aussie 1970s punk,
I saw them back then too.
They couldn't get venues that would hire them so they bought an old run-down inner city pub and started their own venue!
It took off.
Not to everyone's tastes for sure!

Wouldn't you have liked to have been there, I know I would. The sound of all those pipers must have been awesome.

I like enough to be heard while still being able to hear my tunes.

Tunes I hear are my RPW Slash at 3K-6K.....any other tunes would just conflict with the voices in my head!:grin

difference between Loud and Obnoxious can be as little as a washer welded to a bolt near the end a straight pipe,
or the simple mesh cone baffle on there RPW pipes,
Enough to take the 'snarkle' out on decel, cos that 'snarkle' is whats shocking, IMHO.

but I do understand where you're coming from, really I do.
