I noticed similar things with my old Shoei RF200 and sometimes with my
HJC Symax with LaserLite plugs and those EAR yellow plugs. I have
tried a bunch of different disposable and reusable plugs and only
heard it with the Lites never with the Max or the reusables, which
makes me think that they attenuate different frequencies. I like the
Max plugs, YMMV.

Now if I only had more time to ride...
