The speaker in the video is testing MFG Crosswind pedals and finds that some of them, including the MSR, are very loud. However, they discover that by using the included rubber pads, the noise from the shifter paddle can be significantly reduced. They express surprise that this improvement is not done by the factory but appreciate the option for users to make the modification themselves. This modification is especially beneficial for racers who are in a shared living space or for streamers who want to minimize distracting sounds. The speaker also mentions that they are creating a video on this topic and encourages viewers to stay tuned for more content.
