    lack of present necessity

    You needn't speak so loudly. It's very annoying.
    Am I correct?

    "You needn't speak so loudly" is fine. It's another way of saying "It is not necessary to speak so loudly". However, I find it unnatural when followed by "It's very annoying". I would follow it something like "I can hear you perfectly well when you speak at a normal volume".

    You needn't speak so loudly. I can hear you perfectly well when you speak at a normal volume.
    Please don't speak so loudly. It's very annoying.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
