Product Highlights
  • High-Quality Acoustic Foam
  • Reduces Wind Noise up to 8dB
  • Reduces Vocal Plosives
  • Protects Mic from Moisture and Dirt
  • For Microphones 1-5/8" in Diameter

The Auray WHF Series Foam Windscreens are designed to reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.

This WHF-158 Foam Windscreen is designed for use with many common handheld microphones with a 1-5/8" diameter head. The density of the specialty acoustic foam is optimized to help protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.

When used on a handheld microphone, this windscreen is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in calm to light breeze conditions (0-7mph), and can be used indoors for protection against drafts caused by air-conditioners. Users can generally expect a 4dB to 8dB reduction in wind noise, with very slight dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the very slight high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the notable wind noise reduction.

The WHF-158's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Shure, Electro-Voice, AKG, Audio-Technica, Audix, Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Neumann and others.

The WHF-158 Foam Windscreen for 1-5/8" Diameter Microphones is an effective solution for basic wind protection.

                Use it in very heavy wind in intense weather on my RE50 mic. Sometimes the wind literally blows these away so I have to keep a supply on hand. They work as well as the $ ones, so why pay more?

                                      For the most part windscreens get "ate-up" with just simple everyday use and handling.

                                      These black Pearstone windscreens cost pennies for what you get in return - and that's a better sound... a quieter sound... a better recording - for next to nothing.

                                      Keep a few of these handy for your mics - they're great in the studio and out in the field.

                                        I bought this more for aesthetics to place on my RE50/B ElectroVoice mic, but in regards to the wind, and voice input, it blocks the pops.

                                        Good quality to price ratio. I use this windscreen for additional wind protection for a smaller microphone set in the woods to record frog calls. Probably not what it's intended to do, but it does it well.

                                            Perfect fit for my sennheiser SKM 100 wireles mic. You can't go wrong with it.

                                              I got a couple of these for our in studio mics for our internet radio station, and they work great. We can push the volumes higher without getting those pops and peaks.

                                                Not much to say here. Good price. Fits 3 of my mics, so that's a winner.

                                                    Fit a bit tight, but works as designed.
