I'm 5'6". The lower/standard screen is perfect for me. In its lowest position, the screen etc. is completely out of my line-of-sight (downward peripheral) and visually its like being on a naked bike. My helmet is in "clean" air. (This is my preferred position, Etymotics or 32 db plugs under my lid usually, althought the C2 is pretty quiet.)
About half way up, I'm in a quiet bubble (not much airflow, so the C2 gets pretty warm inside) and I still look over rather than through. Alll the way up, and I get a little bit of back pressure when the wife's not on board, but can open my Shuberth at highway speeds. I'm still looking over, but it's a bit of a stretch. Very little rain hits the helmet in this position at speed.
In no position do I experience any buffeting or booming. Like I said, its perfect! This is riding on the low (comfort?) seat in the low position. FWIW the low seat for me is a keeper. Already racked up a few 1K days on it with no problem.
Good luck guys.
