    It not only slides over the foam protector that came with the MKE400 mic, it clicks into place! That's important not for the reason you think--not falling off. It is important because the wind won't be able to cause any movement of the wind-protector, which would create noise when the protector bangs against mic components. Normal wind-protectors slide over the foam, so they are not going to easily fall off, but in strong winds the end of the protector pounds against the rear of the mic. The mic picks it up as a scratching noise. I can fix that with tape, but would rather not. With this one, you don't have anything to fix.

    I couldn't tell you if it works or not, because the thing doesn't fasten securely to the microphone. I bought it specifically to use at an outdoor music festival, and it fell off (never to be found again) 5 mins after I started using it. Do not buy this.

      Comments about Sennheiser MZW400 Wind-muff and XLR Adapter Kit for the MKE400:

      this wind-cover makes a big difference with the MKE400 Sennheiser -- more versatile; can be used indoors and out.
      The XLR adapter makes it possible to use the mike with all my other cameras…

      Weird the web editor won't let me use the same term Wind-____ that they use in their description…????

                  The mic is great for run n gun. The problem I had was rocking in the wind and running with the camera shots. This furry friend defeats that foe of whhiiissshhhhhh! Solid plastic design totally encompasses the mic with out cutting too much noise out.

                  I use this outdoors in the field, filming the service project of 19 students in Peru. The sound quality is satisfactory however I am disappointed that it does not safely secure itself too my mic. It has fallen off my camera multiple times, and needs to be held in a specific position to avoid this.

                    Its a question of when, not if one requires the wind muffler for recording audio outside. It should be included with the MKEr00 mike. The XLR adapter kit makes the MKE400 mike even more useful for XLR inputs on video cameras or digital audio recorders.

                      It didn't take me long to find out that even a slight breeze past the normal foam that comes with the MKE 400 mic will ruin an audio recording :-(. I use this wind-muffer (it censored me when I called it "wind-muf*") with my Sennheiser mic on top of my Canon T2i DSLR. Lately, I've been making surfing videos. It knocks the wind rumble waaaay down, making the audio portion quite useable :-). I read somewhere that someone had trouble keeping it in place on the mic but I think they didn't properly SNAP it into place! It hangs onto the mic nice and tight.

                        It looks like a well designed Windmuff but unfortunately in general use falls off really easily. My daughter's rubber hair band fixed that problem.
                        It's also not great at it's job of minimising wind rumble. It's supposed to be used without the foam Windmuff but I find it helps a little bit if they are used together as well as always setting the low-cut-filter switch to the on position even in light wind conditions.
                        Children will want to hit it and pull it which puts the mike at an increased risk of damage.
                        Should be available without the XLR adapter.

                          The MZW400 is a great little mic for my Canon 5D, this makes it even better. Would he given it 5 stars, but mine does not seem to "click" into place when mounted and can slip forward a bit if your not careful. I helps tremendously with wind noise.

                            This works really well for DSLR set ups. I work in documentary film and have been using this on my Canon 7D with the MKE400 for outdoor shoots. Make sure the wind filter switch is on on the MKE400 though and the MZW400 will take care of the rest.

                            It not only slides over the foam protector that came with the MKE400 mic, it clicks into place! That's important not for the reason you think--not falling off. It is important because the wind won't be able to cause any movement of the wind-protector, which would create noise when the protector bangs against mic components. Normal wind-protectors slide over the foam, so they are not going to easily fall off, but in strong winds the end of the protector pounds against the rear of the mic. The mic picks it up as a scratching noise. I can fix that with tape, but would rather not. With this one, you don't have anything to fix.

                            Fits well, and eliminates wind noise.
