Dunno about the Leo but I had the Two Brothers carbon. I found its note a bit too much, like I couldn't stand to ride without ear plugs, even with its baffle inserted.
I since switched to a Yoshimura R-77 carbon, without the baffle it's still a little obnoxious but bearable, with baffle in it's a lot more pleasant for long rides and only sings loud when you give it the juice to do so.

Like with looks though, audio opinion is a personal taste. Best option is to go to a bike meet and ask to listen to what others have.

I have a Leo Vince gp Corsa Evo slip on and it sounds really nice with the baffle out, you get pops and crackles on deceleration without being too obnoxious. With the baffle in it sounds similar to stock volume if you find it too loud. I definitely recommend it.

I prefer a little quieter and the pop and crackle wasn't to my liking; easy fix was I remove the PAIR system 😉

I have GPR Furore Nero. It sounds very nice! Many bikers have asked me about the exhaust as they like the sound.

I just received an Akrapovic muffler with connector pipe from E-bay for $72 USD including shipping. For that price, I had not expected it to be of great quality, even tho I know the brand is a good one. Well, it appears to live up to the Akrapovic reputation. Installed easily. I had to make a muffler hanger out of 1/8" x 1" mild steel "strap" but other than that the installation was very easy and secure. I rode 87 miles on it in one outing, half-expecting the faux carbon fiber muffler would have melted, but nothing of the sort. I was looking for a little bit more sound (not much) and with the decibel killer left in it is perfect for me. The new system weighs 4# versus the OEM boat anchor muffler's 11#, so a 7# weight reduction.

The vendor is "betterprice_motor" and they shipped very quickly and the packaging was very sturdy. I am really happy with this purchase and recommend it for anyone wanting a lighter muffler with a choice of a little more sound or a lot more at a bargain price. Shipped from Kentucky, USA.

Ralph, I can pretty much guarantee that it isn't actually an Akrapovic for that price, and with the faux carbon fibre. It's a knock off - which I think is fine to install!

I'd assume that the set I bought for my '07 Speed Triple a few years ago is similar to what you're describing. 2 slip-ons for $100 AUD shipped from Aliexpress, no link pipe though so it cost me another $110 AUD at an exhaust shop to get some adapters fabricated. They were available from some other sellers with "Akrapovic" or "Yoshimura" imitation stickers too. Like you describe, faux carbon fibre. They've held up well to almost 20,000 km and 2.5 years of use so I'm quite happy with my solution. They're pretty raucous with the baffles out though!

For my '14 500R I bought a second hand Yoshimura R77. I quite like it, although I've never had the baffle so I couldn't tell you about that. Makes the exhaust louder, but not disastrously so in my opinion, and a much clearer tone. A very small amount of burble and pop on deceleration.
