I am very sorry to hear that you are not having a good experience with the SRC.
I am going to check into the battery issue and find out if that is normal.
I do appreciate you acknowledging the "quiet" as compared to everyone's different setup.

Yes, I know this is a "quiet" helmet, but that's all relative depending on the wind protection your bike gives.
I removed the SRC last night, put the chin curtain back in and am going back to my custom molded ear buds from BigEar for longer rides. For commuting I'll back to enjoying the rumble of the motor.
