versus the RF-1000

Anthony - This thread has been a huge help!

It is time to retire my RF-1000. I like the helmet, but want to move to a modular - I think. Two questions: How does the quite compare between the RF-1000 and the C3?

I am running a wired Autocom system for voice and audio. I am not using the helmet speakers in the 1000, I have custom ear buds for the audio (yep, like others posting here, I only listen to music on those long, boring stretches - when it starts getting fun, off goes da music) and use the Autocom boom for the voice part (bike to bike talk - no phone yack on a bike in motion!). It seems some folks are concerned about clearance of the boom. What kind of issue is this really? I am OK with the idea that the boom will be hanging out there when you flip the front up, but is the chin part so close that the VOX activated voice part is going to let my riding partner know every time I take a breath?
