Rycote 033052 reviews

Standard Hole Softie Windscreen with 19-22mm (0.74-0.87") Hole Size is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Windscreen I've Used After purchasing serveral other windmuffs this is clearly the best one I have found. I am using the Sennheiser ME66 with the K6 phantom power unit. This windscreen has a stiff meshing in it that creates distance between the capsule and the outside of the windscreen. The meshing also helps keep direct airflow away from the mic. It is made of very high quality materials and even comes with a brush if you find yourself wanting to style your windscreens hair. lol. I have achieved clear sound and almost non-existent wind noise in medium windy conditions. I strongly recommend this product. It is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally essential! Although I bought this from B&H years ago for my Sennheiser ME66, I am just now submitting a review. Since then, I've been experimenting with less bulky alternatives. There are none. Foam obviously doesn't work, and putting layers of fuzz around a mic is also ineffective. The Softie is bigger than the camcorder!Where I live the wind is constant year-round, 10-40mph at all times. I surmise that there needs to be space between the impact of the wind and the mic diaphragm. The Rycote has about 1.5 of effective material within that space. After 30mph, I need to stick the Softie inside a blimp covered with shag.In addition to the Rycote Softie, I also have to engage the bass roll-off on the mic, and the Softie does cut some of the high-end. So I'm trimming both low and high frequencies. Ultimately, however, I end up with usable sound. When I'm in the field with journalists and other shooters, if they don't have a Softie, I know they're not getting usable sound. I see/hear they're stuff on the internet, and it's painful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Windy Outdoor Shoot! This Standard Hole Softie Windscreen by Rycote was perfect for a 48-hour documentary made recently in Washington, DC. Outdoors with pretty substantial winds in late afternoon, absolutely no wind noise was picked up when used in combination with my Sennheiser ME-66. In addition, the entire unit fit into my Rode soft case for quick dispatch, and it didn't shed a hair, unlike my generic softie for my Rode NG2. Should I purchase another Sennheiser, this Rycote will be the way to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wind Protection Anytime you're outside your shotgun really needs protection from wind noise. The Rycote Softie provides excellent protection for a nice clean signal. For the money, you just can't beat it. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I needed I use a Sennheiser MKH416 mic and this dead cat fit perfectly and did the job of blocking some real stiff wind that we get out here in the islands during trade wind season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, lightweight & effective. I use this for my Sennheiser 418 and/or Sanken CS3E nearly every shoot for quick, slip-on wind protection. It's much quicker to swap mics & lighter/smaller than a zeppelin, making it easy to wield on a boom & pack in a case. Performs very well in most outdoor settings in all but extreme wind conditions. Great to just leave on for run & gun situations where you have to bounce between interior & exterior set-ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rycote Windscreens are the BEST As a taper of live music (over 20 years experience) I only get one chance to do it right and I never know exactly what I am going to be dealing with as far as environment. Outdoor concerts are particularly difficult for many reasons, wind being the most common problem. I have tried many different products to cope with this issue and NOTHING beats a Rycote Windscreen! I recently recorded a show with wind gusts of 30mph+ blowing across an open field and the recording came out so good one cannot even tell from listening if it were recorded inside or outside. I DEFINITELY recommend the Rycote Windscreen for ANYONE who needs to use a microphone outside. The wind suppression is absolutely unbelievable and there is ZERO sound signal lost. Amazing product!
