I believe the XR-1 is louder, and it is a canister design. The Hush is rated quiter, but I know others that have it still say it's loud. Since it's rated quiter, I'm assuming it's not a canister style. Not 100% sure on that though. also check to make sure it's a true 3".

the x-r1 is a canister, i have one, its REALLY loud...it does not make you car quiet, it takes the tinny sound out of the exhaust note and thats all, its more of a resonator than a muffler, the hush is a strait through muffler.....its not to loud, but if you have a wagon you might get some drone in the cabin....it all depends on what your looking for, if you dont care about noise, giver....

on another note mine might be for sale soon... its a 2.5"

I'll say this, I love my Cobb exhaust! Really deep grumble, louder than my STI, but a lot less ricey than my friends invdia(sp?) dual tube exhaust.

The XR-1 is quite loud and is single tip. I love the sound. That's what I've got on my car. The hush is dual tip and supposed to be much quieter (although I haven't heard one myself)
