That's odd, I have a plexi and before that a 356 windshield. I've never even noticed any issue with wind from freeway speed bothering my ears / hearing. I live about a 25 minute freeway drive to get into town and never have an issue.

Foam earplugs are my answer to wind noise.
Thanks for the tip on a big umbrella.

I have the full windshield, I'm 5'8" and my seat sits a little higher (1-2") than I would like, but I can't guess what could be different between our cars.

I doubt much is different. My seats are right on the floor with minimal cushion. I'm 6', seats as low as possible with a low plexi. You are 5'8" with seats 2" off the floor and a 4" higher wind screen. All said and done you would be sitting higher but the windscreen would give you better shielding.
