Looks like V Stream or WRS is the consensus winner? How are they with wind noise?
Im 6'1 on a 22 AT AS, the wind noise makes it impossible to listen to music with my cardo, so Im looking for solutions
Medium/Tall VStream (with or without the Batzen extender) is "fair to good".

But, how does your helmet cope?

Yes, I'm now looking for a better windscreen for my 2022 AT Standard. I have a nice Sena Outreach R Bluetooth helmet for music/comms with other riders that sounds great until I go over 50mph than I struggle hearing. I'm slightly hearing impaired also. So looking for a windscreen that will help buffeting at the higher speeds.

Been reading here but still don't see no clear winner? I'm 6'2" if that helps. Currently looking at the Givi D1179 that's 6.3" higher than stock & Honda OEM 08R70-MKS-A00 that's 6.8" higher than stock. Plus interested in the Tourtech (thank you forum members) except it's only about 1" higher than the Honda and $90 more. And honestly I don't want a super high windscreen. I want to stay with-in these three (3) specs.

It would be easier to speed $300 more for a Sena Stryker Bluetooth helmet with blasting Harman Kardon speakers but then I'll still have the buffeting issues. If anyone is using anyone of these three (3) windscreens I mentioned (hard of hearing a plus) I'd like to hear your feedback. Thanks!

In terms of screen height flexibility, you could consider the Batzen adjustable riser:

As somebody who suffers from lifelong tinnitus, more volume from your communicator is definitely not the answer here. I use earbuds with Comply (noise blocking) foam tips with a Freecom 4x and don't need to crank the volume in order to hear music, other rides, and phone calls well...

I'm the same height as you and I too would like a slightly taller windshield for my '20 ATAS.

Now this looks interesting! I need to look into a bit more. But I can do everything as before with my Senna Outreach R helmet i.e. communicating with my Honda, music, answering phone calls, google maps, Bluetooth to my Android phone etc etc etc? And hear everything "CLEARLY" with the 40mm JBL earbuds to boot? Boy I'd like to see this system before I throw $300 at it...... Thank you
