PS: It would be difficult to sit behind the engines in a CRJ 700

What about 170 and 145's?

I travel fairly frequently and have hyperacusis (loud noises are painful and can cause my tinnitus to ramp up). Generally I try to fly in the larger aircraft, sit in front of the engines, and wear earplugs with NC headphones. I typically fly in 737s or A319/A320's. Sometimes this isn't possible and I may have to fly in and ERJ-175 or ERJ-170. How loud are these jets? I flew in a CRJ 700 sitting in front of the engines and although it was a little bit louder it was tolerable. I have no desire to fly in a CRJ 200 after hearing a lot of complaints about it.
