Again I'm nut sure what you want, but if you want the hiss and crackle to vary with the voice, then these controls should perhaps be renamed as just "hiss" and "crackle".
There were two different crackles: one only on voice, and another constant one which would add crackle to silence.
Similarly "constant hiss" adds hiss even when there is no voice ...

I had to revert to the old noise-generators. Your noise-code was more elegant but it wasn't producing the same radio-like hiss & crackle sounds. "clip2", (effectively normalizing to 0dB before clipping), also had to go : it was making the very clipped sounds deafeningly loud.

HelmetRadio 1.3 , like previous versions only produces (optional) constant hiss & crackle on the left channel, so OK for mono , not stereo . (Oddly the radio-crackle, which only occurs with speech, is on both channels).

Add enclosed telephone-booths to that list.
