HJC helmets?

Im looking for a new helmet. I currently have an HJC CL-12. It fits well but gets a little hot and loud as hell once you hit 60 and up. I'm in college so I cant afford any of the really good helmets which is why Im looking for anouther HJC. Ive been looking at the CL-SP and the CL-15s. They fit well and dont seem to be to hot but I cant exaxtly go riding with one on unfortunatly. If anyone has one or has tried one and can tell me how they are on the noise department I would really appreciate it. Also if anyone has any reccomendations on helmets either a different HJC model or anouther brand all together I would love to hear em. Ive set my price at $150 or less so no Shoei's unfortunatly

Thanks alot,
Sepias

PS anyone seen a review on these?

HJC kicks scorpions arse...well at least the 06 models. The CL-SPs and CL-15s both come with an anti-fog shield like scorpion has. They fit so nicely and vent way better than Scorpion does...read some reviews if you wont take my word for it. HJC imho has never reall been a top of the line helmet but the 06 models are getting close to it! Hope this helps...

I've got everything from the CL10 to the CL14 (and some of them I have a couple of). I'm pretty impressed with the maturity of the line of helmets they produce. The inner liner is getting way better, the faceshields are awesome, the ventilation is great, the visibility is good also, and they fit my box shaped head.

Try what fits you. Order what fits best and has the features you want. Then, only run a helmet for a couple of seasons, as you sweat/cologne/suntan oil/etc will have wore it out from the inside.

I appreciate all the responses. Im planning on getting the CL-SP Animas. Im planning on replacinng my helmet every year or two since they seem to take a beating pretty fast, also the newer "better" models would be out. Thanks again for all the tips and advice,
