I have both a Schuberth C3 and a Symax II (not a 3), and while there is much ado about the quietness of the C3, I find that once the vents are open, it is all academic. While the C3 is slightly quieter than the Symax, neither is quiet enough (in my opinion) for extended rides without hearing protection. I found the Symax to be a very good helmet. Why did I replace it, you ask? Because it impacted the side of a utility truck in a glancing blow at 40mph then the pavement with my grape still inside. Dislocated hip, smashed clavicle, crushed bones in my foot and ankle. Zero head injury, no loss of consciousness, no failure of the locking mechanism of the chin-bar. Great helmet, and I will own one again.
