    This windjammer is nuts! We had the subject riding an ATV at very fast speeds and still picked up perfect audio of their voice. The only down side I'd have to say is that every time I put the mic in, I pull some of the hairs out. Overall, this is hands down the only option when using a lav mic in high wind conditions.

    Not for Vio POV

    Listed as an accessory for the POV helmet camera. DOES NOT fit or work. I tried to modify it for the square mic, and it is just does not work.

        I ordered this windjammer to put on a the groom at outdoor weddings. When I received it I was very surprised by how large it was. Its about the size of a silver dollar, far to large to be exposed on the groom or any talent for that matter.

          This is a must have piece of equipment for a lav. I'm using a Tram TR50 and this little thing is a life saver for audio. I'm usually capturing audio outdoors and I can't afford to have any wind interfere with the audio. This little guy has been great in helping me capture quality audio despite less than ideal weather conditions.

            Used it at a beach wedding with a constant 15-20 mph wind. I did not hear any wind noise and it matched the suits perfectly in color. Easy to install.

              Comments about Rycote Furry Windjammer for Lavalier Mics (Single):

              Using a lapel microphone in an outdoor environment can be a real challenge. It is a rare day when the wind is not blowing outside and introducing unwanted noise into the microphone. The Furry Windjammer solves this noise problem quite well. I have been told by clients that the furry ball is not all that attractive. However it is far less distracting than wind noise interfering with the audio track. That argument alone diminishes any objections to the use of the Windjammer. This is a great tool that I keep in my audio tool kit and it should be a part of yours.

                Using wireless systems in the field, you've got to have protection from the wind noise and these work great.

                  I use this in outdoor interviews with any chance of wind noise. I've used it when the wind is pretty strong and gotten usable sound. It is a bit awkward to clip on and hide. But, it will save you if you need to interview someone in inclement weather.

                      The windjammer works great. You do, however, in the film/video world, have to use carefully, as it is rather large and needs to be hidden. And in that case, you need to be able to either roll off some low end in post or EQ on location. Fortunately I have a mic that has "caps" to use for higher frequency response.

                          We bought this product after having problems with our last windjammer allowing to much wind to pass through.

                          We tested the Rycote on a windy day with our client using a audio technica lav. and the results were excellent.

                          My only issue with this was the size. It looks like a small mouse on the subjects collar.

                          I would recommend this product to a friend, it gets the job done and produced great results.

                                    Great job dampening wind noise! Would recommend sewing it tight to lav. so it won't come inadvertently off.

                                      I bought this to use with the EW112P G3 LAV SYS (A) EK100/SK100/ME2 lapel microphone, which I use for documentaries, and it works amazing. I kept the windjammer off the mic for quite a while, thinking I might not have to use it, but when we hit the top of a mountain during an interview tour, the wind blasted the mic and all I could hear was wind noise. After putting on the windjammer, it instantly removed all wind noise, and I could hear the subject perfectly.

                                      I have already lost one of the foam covers that goes in between the mic and the windjammer, because they're so small...

                                      But a great buy!

                                        Ideal for cutting out all wind noise when recording interviews. It's a little bigger than it looks in the pics though.
