      purchased for Zoom H2N

      For the price, you can't beat this wind shield and it fits perfectly on my Zoom H2N. It does a much better job than the typical foam wind screen.

        Comments about Rode Dead Kitten Artificial Fur Wind Shield:

        If you use the Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro on a DSLR as I do, you will find the Rode Dead Kitten Wind Shield essential for outdoor work. You never know when a gust of wind will overload the mic and cause you to lose the shot. At under $[$], this wind screen is cheap protection against gusts of wind. I keep it on all the time. It should come with the microphone since it's very necessary.

            Dead Kitten fits nice and snug over the foam (wind shield?) of my Rode-NT4. Works great in any wind under about 20-25mph!

            Comments about Rode Dead Kitten Artificial Fur Wind Shield:

            Excellent density and variable length of fur yields excellent wind noise suppression. Very pleased with the wind reduction, and audio transparency.

            The Wind Shield is very well-made, and easy to attack over the Zoom recorder's X-Y internal microphones.

            Minus one star for not having a cheap plastic bag or box that would protect the shield when not in use.

                    I put this on a Behringer condenser mice with a foam windscreen. It did an amazing job of cutting out wind noise. The foam screen seemed to do very little. I left it on because the Dead Kitten is made for a larger mic. This is a long term installation so I zip tied the Dead Kitten to the mic to make sure it does not blow off.

                      WOrks great! i used it on two windy nights on an H4n and was able to manage. I also took it up on a local mountain on a windy day and was able to fit the foam shield under the Kitten for even more dampening.

                        Most sites in Colorado have at least some breeze. My D7100 mics are so sensitive they are practically useless outside. The Dead Kitten virtually eliminates the problem with strong breezes or winds.

                          Blocks wind very well and ver portable. Works for a few different size small mics. Good to have if you are flowing from inside to outside shooting. Quickly covers mic and easy to take off and fits in pocket.

                          Get this when you get a video mic for your camera. It's a must when filming outside when it's windy.

                            Works great and seems to stop the winder interference.

                            I purchased this in a kit with the Stereo VideoMic Pro. Use it for taping out door marching band performances. Usually from the top of the press box there is a lot of wind and this has been an issue for a number of years. I also have a VideoMic Pro shotgun equipped with a similar screen.

                            My daughter was concerned about the name but I explained it was artificial fur and everything was good.

                                  I use this on my Sony M10 recorder, it's much better than the Rycote windshield made specifically for the M10. What's good about it is it's far more effective, larger and more elastic. The Rycote keeps slipping off, this one doesn't, I can pull it half over the recorder if needed, and it will also fit on several microphones I have - good value too.

                                    Like most kittens, it sheds-keep it isolated from camerra and lenses. It looks a little strange but works great.

                                      Easy to use and would buy again. It would be nice if microphone could be designed not to need one.

                                      This dead kitten works very well with my Rode Stéréo VideoMic Pro. Like I wrote in the Headline " bye bye the noise of wind ", The Cons, it's not very beautiful, and it make my mcrophone very huge. This accesory makes a good job.

                                          Dead Kitten was installed on a Rode Stereo mic on a Canon D5-MarkII. Comparison is between mic with the foam wind shield that comes with the mic, and the Dead Kitten installed over the foam shield. In strong wind (20 knots) with the Dead Kitten, recordings still had considerable wind noise. In light wind it eliminated wind noise. It helped in moderate wind.

                                            Not much else to say, but in case you don't already know this is far better than a foam wind shield.
