      I bought two of these for an outdoor shoot in the park where audio was critical, and I was very impressed. We fit them over the cheap foam windscreens that came with our shotguns (the kind that only work up to about 3 mph). One size fits all, although it takes a little squeezing and pushing to get them on, they do fit well and seal with velcro. We had gusts that felt like about 20 mph, and there wasn't a hint of wind noise recorded. They allow voice to pass through fairly well -- I didn't notice any impact on voice quality, at least for conversation.
      I'm not sure if this would work in a 30 mph wind, but it's a great alternative if, like me, you can't afford a blimp system for every microphone.

      Comments about Auray Fuzzy Windbuster for Shotgun Microphones (7"):

      I got this as part of B&H's Rode VideoMic & Micro Boompole Kit with Windbuster so essentially I got this and the 10' cable for free. But standalone, I think it is much too expensive. This wind buster is great for cutting out wind noise when paired with a traditional foam windscreen as it is intended. The only downside I see so far is the it sheds the artificial fur it has, I don't know if this is something that others have experienced but I have.

        I use this to help record inexpensive commercials and house videos for the web. It does help cut down on wind noise. If you use it inside where there is no noise it will make your audio sound a little, not a lot, but a little muffled. So don't just stick it on your microphone just because you have it. If you have lots of rough wind have someone block the wind with a large board or foam insolation sheet.

        I purchased this for my NTG-1 shotgun mic... It does the job, but does not quite fit the mic if you are using a shock mount.

                  I've used this for outdoor video production needs. It reduces wind noise per it's design. Downside is that is sheds like a cat or dog. If you are used to having animal hair all over your equipment, then you won't see any issue with this thing.

                  There are other options out there that cost substantially more that do (maybe) a better job. If you are on a tight budget, this will work.

                      Bought it with A Rode mic as a kit, the mic is great the dead cat not so much. It does the job of baffling the wind but it doesn't fit over the mic very comfortably at all.

                          I had this on my Rode Video Mic and DSLR. Made my setup look super professional, BUT looked a bit large on the DSLR. I ended up selling the mic and windbuster and will go with something less inconspicuous.

                              I have two Windbusters for two matching Azden SGM-1X mic's, and they are mostly used for documentary filmmaking in Latin America.

                              The fit is good, they are definitely not any more distracting than the microphone itself to people who have never been on camera.

                              As most indoor locations in, say, Guatemala are dark, we do a lot of outdoor shooting and the sound is definitely better.

                              I use this product to cover my Rode Video Mic (shotgun mic) and it significantly reduces wind noise. However, the two don't fit 100% perfectly, and it does look a little awkward. I'm not sure that it affects performance though. Also, the little fibers/hairs fall out fairly easily.

                                I used this windsock over a Sennheiser ME66 microphone with its standard foam windscreen. It works reasonably well and I don't think it interferes with sound quality. It is a tough squeeze to get it over the foam windsleeve, but once on it it stays on.Good value for the price. I'm sure the Rycote windsock/blimp systems work better, but they also cost 5-10x as much.

                                  Used on a SD DVCAM DSR 300. Works as advertised. Quick delivery. Great price. Fits on easily and stays where it needs to stay. Happy customer of B & H.

                                    I used it only once so far, but it was on a somewhat windy day and I got very good sound. Again ive only used it once, but so far so good.
