      I worked for years in broadcast TV, and various forms of video production. For the price, this unit cannot be beat. It blocks out noise in all but the most windy conditions, and it's super easy to use. I should note that I've used many other units, and once tried a test on a blustery mountain pass. I used the NTG2 microphone bare (horrible results), The NTG2 with the foam windscreen (almost as horrible results), with the Rode Dead Cat over the foam (better results, not good for gusts) and this unit, which was a big step up. It blocked out all but the highest gusts. If you need a foolproof system, go to a full zeppelin system and don't look back. But if you're on a budget and need something that just works in nearly all conditions, this will do the trick. Plus the price is fantastic. The one con I have is that it's not the most durable unit, but with good care it will last you quite a while.

      I thought the WS6 would be my answer for wild wind, but it doesn't do the trick for me. I live at a place were the weather changes drastically, a soft breeze becomes an intense wind in matter of seconds. I think the price is a little high and the information around the internet is misleading. I definitely would recommend a zeppelin windshield if you're planning record some audio outdoors.

      Not a sound

      By jaymel

      Comments about Rode WS6 Deluxe Windshield for the NTG2 and NTG1 Microphones:

      My first wind muff and I must say, top of the line! Fits perfectly around my ntg-2. I'm using it for recording on a sail boat and it muffles the high wind speeds so well that I'm left with near perfect sound. So glad I went with this one. I know the price is a little steep, but its a worth while product. Better to buy this once than buy a cheaper one and end up buying yet another one because you're not satisfied with the results.

        only 2 weeks ago I was recording sound using two Sennheiser ME66 with two of these installed to the Roland R-26, on the waterfront in Redhook in crazy wind and they worked really great! The sound from C100 on camera microphones was completely unusable not even for syncing...

          I bought this for my NTG-2 Rode shotgun microphone, and it fit perfectly. I don't get any unwanted sound and it does a great job. I'd say this is a must-have for any NTG-2 owner.

              This windshield is good value for the money and does a decent job in keeping wind noise away from the microphone. However it is important to see the direction of the wind and to make sure that the wind is not flowing into the head of the microphone (This is for a shotgun microphone which is very directional).If that is the case it will pick up enough noise to degrade the quality of your audio.I use this with my 70D & NTG 1.A wrap around design would have made this product a bit easy to use.Overall a good product.

                I have this windshield for my NTG2 and it is great. I have not had any issues with the wind. I haven't had it on a super windy day, but I have used during a couple windy shoots, and it works great.

                      We purchased this mic as part of our FIRST shotgun mic kit for a small start up HDSLR Video production company. We put this on a Rode NTG-2 Mic.

                      Pros:
                      Fits on snug and easily
                      Does not interfere with shock mount or changing batteries
                      Looks legit, adds to your professional look
                      Seems to drop wind noise very well

                      Cons:
                      None so far

                            I use with my Panasonic Z1000 3-D camera/recorder

                            It sheds a bit but not too bad. In my case I keep it in an a plastice bag so the hair doesnt sitck to things.

                            Works well for light to moderate winds. For heavy winds use a Zeppelin.

                            It looks like a well made product. So far so good.

                              No windnoise at all. One of the priciest of the windshields, but you'll only buy one and paying a little extra for something that you'll have for years is worth it.
                              High quality, works, relatively easy to get on, I don't really have anything to complain about, fantastic product.

                                This windshield looks great, sounds great, and cuts back a significant amount of wind noise compared to what you would have without it.

                                I am still new to this product, but it looks good, has a nice feel to it and it covers the microphone well.

                                  I do a lot of outdoor recording and this little guy really helps. It absolutely necessary to have some kind of windshield. Adds a huge difference in sound quality. It seems to be built really well with a rubber seal on one end. This can handle light wind but I'd definitely recommend getting a blimp of some sort for more extreme conditions.

                                      I worked for years in broadcast TV, and various forms of video production. For the price, this unit cannot be beat. It blocks out noise in all but the most windy conditions, and it's super easy to use. I should note that I've used many other units, and once tried a test on a blustery mountain pass. I used the NTG2 microphone bare (horrible results), The NTG2 with the foam windscreen (almost as horrible results), with the Rode Dead Cat over the foam (better results, not good for gusts) and this unit, which was a big step up. It blocked out all but the highest gusts. If you need a foolproof system, go to a full zeppelin system and don't look back. But if you're on a budget and need something that just works in nearly all conditions, this will do the trick. Plus the price is fantastic. The one con I have is that it's not the most durable unit, but with good care it will last you quite a while.

                                          turns the wind into a faint whisper. Fairly sturdy as far as windshields go, other than that, its about what you'd expect
