Rycote 033202 overview

  • 1Description

The Rycote 15cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics features an aerodynamic shape and surface structure made from the company's 3D-Tex material, which allows for attenuation of wind noise with acoustic transparency. It is suitable for a variety of sound recording applications including video, ENG, and more.

The 15cm Super-Softie has no rigid internal structure, thus it causes virtually no polar pattern distortion. Its robust design has been engineered for use in challenging environments, and if it becomes rain-soaked, it can be squeezed out and shaken dry quickly. Also, if it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance.

    Rycote 033202 specs

    Compatibility For mics 0.7 - 0.9" (19 - 22 mm) in diameter
    For mics slots no further than 5.9" (15 cm) from the front of the mic
    Additional Information Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length, and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter. 


    For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 15 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 15 cm from the front of the mic. 


    The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm), or Large (24-25 mm).


    Diameter 2.8 - 3.9" (70 - 100 mm)
    Length 8.3" (210 mm)
    Weight Not specified by manufacturer

    Rycote 033202 reviews

    15cm Super-Softie Wind Shield for Shotgun Mics is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Bother In my experience with this softie, even in light wind, it is completely ineffective. I've had this on a DPA4017 in NYC on days with only light wind and it has done nothing to filter it out. Wind comes right through this thing. Save your money and go with one of the older softies or use one of the Bubblebee Wind Killers. Did they even test this thing before putting it on the market?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well in light to moderate winds The Super-Softie is fantastic for wind speeds of up to no stronger than 15Knots I'd say. After that, the mic starts to blow out. When you get into stronger winds outdoors, go for a blimp instead. I had that problem on a film set the other week. We were in a wind tunnel and the winds were just too strong, blowing out the boom mic.
