Do shorty headers affect exhaust sound?

I plan to get the MRT v 2.0 for my 2010, and am on the fence about getting some JBA shorty headers to go with it. Will it affect the sound of the exhaust at all?

Thanks

Yes. Most likely it will get a bit louder

How much louder? $500 worth of a difference? I'm not much for performance upgrades, I'm more into cosmetics. I do want the nice sound of a good exhaust, but if the headers aren't going to be as noticeable a change as the exhaust then I might just direct that money elsewhere, you know?

I like to get the most "difference" for my buck..

I,ve got the JBA shorts and yes they're a bit louder, mostly underhood noise normally subdued by the heavy iron of the stock exhaust manifolds.

Its the sound of combustion, it's fiesty and says "I'm modified- watch out!"
