I happened onto a CB screen (+3"), and find it to be an improvement over stock GS screen, but still too noisy (I'm almost 6'1"). Still tinkering with screen angle, and wanted to get the wings before investing in another (taller) screen, so appreciate the useful feedback in this thread! Thanks to all.
Mainly I did the Cee Baileys because they are cheaper. But I found out that the larger ones seem to work a bit better, and look pretty good too.

I use them with my stock screen and find them much better than the stock screen alone, and suspect it would help the larger Cee Baileys as well. The noise from most helmets is at the bottom when turbulent air hits them. The wings smooth and reduce this areflow from below and makes even the stock screen quieter. YMMV.
