I’d say that more so than parabolic vs. shield, it’s a matter of how tall the feather’s profile is. Taller shields are definitely noisier than lower profile ones, in my experience. I’m using 4″ shields and they are as quiet as any parabolics I’ve used. I think offset is also a factor to pay attention to.
