Check all your zippers, make sure its clipped on top of your doors, and if its still.making noise.. its just a jeep thing.

Is it new for you or have you had it a while? Without really knowing what you're referring to I can say it took me a while to get the hang of closing my top the right way... Practice makes perfect

ive had it for 2 months and all the zippers are zipped up properly. it comes from the front top where the soft top meets the top of the windshield. but everything latches up fine. and i check the fitment of the top and it all fits flush. when i drive at 60+ theres no air that comes in. so im not sure, if its just me. i have to raise my voice a good amount sometimes for the person next to me to hear me. only reason i brought this up is because i was told it was loud from another jk owner that has a soft top also

one trick i read and used on my 07, was to cut a pool noodle to length and install it on top of the soundbar. helped with flapping of the top.

Mine doesn't make any noise. But I can hear louder vehicles that are around my easier. My 08 Rubi wasn't loud either. IMO. Now my TJ's where all pretty loud.....

I've read some threads where the windshield creates a wind noise. Mostly it happens on Jeeps after a windshield has been replaced. You could perform a little experiment and run a line of tape around the windshield to cover the gap between the glass and the frame and see if that makes a difference.

Also check the leading edge of the rubber seal on the top of the windshield. And lastly compare your Jeep to a new one to see if your top clamps are pulling down tight.

I was surprised just how quiet mine is with the soft top
Maybe the front seal is getting bad
Or like already mentioned the windshield
Seal is making noise

Like Outlaw, my JK is very quiet riding down the highway. No raising my voice to be heard either. Pleasantly surprised.

If I had to take a wild guess, the problem is attaching the top to the door surrounds correctly. It bends 3 times(forming a "U") not just twice (making an "L"). That's where people usually make mistakes putting on the soft top.

the door surrounds are fine. The other jeep owners have a soft top. and i might take it to the dealer and have them look at it. but like i said i dont feel any wind coming in while cruising.

Is this a 2 doors or a 4 doors? If it's a 4 door, did you take it in for the soft top recall?
