In my experience Arai's (Giga, RX7, Corsair) have been some of the noisiest helmets I've ever used, the Tour X are reputed to be worse than the above, so must be really noisey.

I've got an X-lite X-551 with peak, use common earplugs and a Rally Raid screen. Did an 1150 mile trip (mostly high speeds of 80 - 90 MPH) in 23 hours last year and had absolutely no issue's whatsoever.

Only very occasionally in strong blustery headwinds do I have any problems, but tbh that would be the same on pretty much any bike.

IMO you should try (borrow) a few helmet/screen options before writing off 'the best bike you've had'.
