Put in ear plugs. If you are having trouble with a hook, put a heavier ear plug in your right ear to slow closure of clubface.

I've hotmelted a ton of G425's in my shop which takes care of the high pitch.  If you don't have anyone local that uses real hotmelt I'm happy to help.  

Not a fan of the muffled drivers like TM M6 or SIM, or the Mavrik. Had a Mizuno JPX 900 and didn’t like the high pitched sound. I love my Tour Edge EXS 220, powerful but not ear-piercing. Matter of ta

Just got fitted for the g425 LST with AD IZ shaft. I really despise the deep, clunky sound of this head, and it’s pretty loud. Is there anyway I can suppress the sound a little without adding too much weight? Maybe removing the 26g weight and adding 2 lighter weights? Hot melt? Any suggestions?

In his case, it would neutral bias, correct?

It sounds worse with hot melt to me. It's like a softball bat

Not a fan of the muffled drivers like TM M6 or SIM, or the Mavrik. Had a Mizuno JPX 900 and didn’t like the high pitched sound. I love my Tour Edge EXS 220, powerful but not ear-piercing. Matter of taste. 
 

I almost tried cotton balls with the Mizuno but was afraid I wouldn’t like it and be stuck with it. No way back that I’m aware of, so rather don’t screw with it.

If you are doing a custom build through ping, you can order it with factory hotmelt and they will adjust the weights to get the SW back to spec

It may be a difference in hearing but I do not know---- My M6 does not sound muted to me but I will admit it is not as loud as that old G1X Homna I have been playing the last 3 years. I will put this out there I know some balls depending on what someone is playing sound different. I have been hitting the Srixon Q Stars or Q Star tours with this driver. Have only been playing the M6 for a few weeks now.

Where do you put the cotton ball or yarn?

 

I just kinda shove it through the screw holes where the weight connects (how I did it on the G410, I assume its the same on the G425).  The cotton ball you have to tear into smaller bits and kinda jab it through the hole piece by piece.

Stuff a cotton ball inside the screw port. It'll stick to the glue bad already in the head. I used to put them in my 2007 Burner TP drivers.

If you use yarn, how difficult is it to get out if you aren’t happy with the resulting sound?

Dont use cotton if you can avoid it. Get polyfill (pillow stuffing) from a craft store the cotton balls can clump up and absorb moisture.

Good point, by the point I get to putting something in the driver head its not a strong contender for getting much play anyways lol.
