Auray WHF-2545 Foam Windscreen For 1" Diameter Microphones

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

This WHF-2545 Foam Windscreen is designed for use with many small and large diaphragm condensers, handheld dynamic and other microphones with a 1" diameter head. The density of the specialty acoustic foam is optimized to help protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.

Whether used on a condenser or dymamic mic, 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-2545's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from AKG, Audio-Technica, Audix, Beyerdynamic, Electro-Voice, Sennheiser, Shure and others.

The WHF-2545 Foam Windscreen For 1" Diameter Microphones is an effective solution for basic wind protection.
