But Akra is the one that I think sounds just amazing and brilliant! And always go for the wireless option with Akra. Means you can chose when to annoy and when to not...

It really isn't that loud below 3k rpm (with the plug removed).

According to this, the static noise level is the same for stock and Slip-on..

I'm assuming that static decibels are the same as stock for the Akra slip-on with the blocking plate. However, if you get the wireless kit then it replaces the blocking plate with a valve that you can open at the press of a button and increase the noise level (I assume to louder than stock).

Alternatively, I believe you can buy the Akra slip-on without the wireless kit and then manually remove the blocking plate so that you permanently get the increased noise level all the time.
