Default 7x12 metal gears

If someone has changed both the 7x12 headstock gears hi-lo gears to the metal ones, would you mind telling me how much louder they are than the stock plastic gears?

I'm replacing the spindle hi-lo gear with a metal one, and I'm trying to decide if I should replace the countershaft one with metal as well, or just leave it plastic.
