i just upgraded from stock (were a little 'scratched' too, so i couldn't live with that!) and asked honda for suggestions: wanted more growl than stock, but not obnoxious. they recommended V&H ClassicsII, they'd put some on another bike and thought the owner was very pleased, same concerns as mine.
turns out they definately were louder, and i'm not used to it yet either, but i think they'll be just what i was looking for. honda dealer installed, package was less than 550.
