I did 300 miles this Sunday for 5.5 hours, my first long distance ride with the Scorpion helmet, ( after shaping the foam core at the forehead ).
It's a keeper.
After reading your other post on the topic, (and the subsequent fall-out. Sheeesh, some people), It looks like you tried the Scorpion. If the overall cranuim shape didn't seem right and was obvious the second you put it on, then you should probably pass.
As I relayed in my previous post, the foam layer is quite thick on the size XL, so can take a bit of compression shaping without compromising the potection. I only had to indent it maybe 2mm to relieve the pressure spot
Before shaping, I was getting a hotspot at the top of my forehead in 1.5 hours.
Regarding installing a microphone, I found the Scorpion easier than the Arai. The Arai uses adhesive tape to secure the chin-bar foam piece, whereas Scorpion has it structurally "wedged" in. It's a much more positive removal and replacement proposition.
One other brand you may care too look at, if you can find it, is AGV. I tried their modular, flip-up model and it felt good for the 5 minutes I wore it. Not a single one of the other flip-up brands can I bear for long.
It's very disappointing that Arai changed their shape with the later Signet series and now the Profile.

I checked it at the store today, and they looked OK, but still some pressure on the head... maybe if some brake-in it would be better...
