Yes, unless I know my I'll be under 45mph. The wind noise above that is the equivalent of running a chainsaw and I value my hearing. I do know that every helmet and bike combo produce different results and have tested my HJC ac-10 by standing up while riding. When standing up it is perfectly quiet. Once I sit down again the turbulence returns. I've tried all sorts of windscreens, helmet skirts etc. and just returned to earplugs.
