The WRF-H1 Foam Windscreen for the Zoom H1 is made from specialty acoustic foam designed to reduce broadband wind noise with minimal high frequency loss. The density of the foam is optimized to help protect the microphone elements from wind pressure without dramatically muffling the sound.
This windscreen is most effective in calm to light breeze conditions (0-7mph), and can be used indoors for protection against drafts caused by air-conditioners. It also reduces vocal plosives in close microphone placement situations. 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 WRF-H1's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit over the microphones of the H1 handheld recorder.
The WRF-H1 Foam Windscreen for Zoom H1 is an effective solution for basic wind protection.
