Rycote 055365 reviews

Rycote Mini Windjammer for Sony PCM D50 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rycote windjammer is superior to Sony's I bought this windscreen to see how it compares to the Sony-issue one that you can get for the D50, and Rycote didn't let me down. With the Sony screen, it was still relatively easy to bottom out the mic capsules with even a light wind, but the Rycote does a much better job of shielding them, even when directly blowing on the mics in a test. Not perfect, but the protection is better. The diffusing hair is finer and longer than the Sony and displaces wind more evenly, similar to their larger windcsreens, with a tightly-woven mesh that fits snugly over the D50's mic cage bars. I highly recommend this windscreen if you're considering which one to get. Now if only you could fit the unit into the nice hard Sony case with the screen on - that would have been nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good protection but difficult to fit I use this on my Sony PCM D50 It's pretty necessary for outdoor use but unfortunately doesn't fit very well and takes a while to stretch on which can be a pain if you want to make a hasty recording. Also if not fitted properly it has a tendency to fall off. It provides adequate wind protection for clean recordings, but has a tendency to fray and drop hairs which could get stuck in the moving parts of the recorder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from can only go on looks I ordered both a used Sony pcm-d50 and the Rycote mini wind jammer at the same time and I have only the wind jammer because my used d50 was out of stock. I can only go by looks. This cover looks quality.The construction, and density of the fibers look sufficient to quash the wind noise, this is definitely necessary for out door wind recording. --I am wondering if it will dampen the recording too much? For now that is all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected I don't know of another commercial product that is better than this one. (Surprisingly, it is only slightly better than the ripsop nylon one I made, and if I had known that, I would have stayed with my DIY version.) It fits well, and I have no complaints other than Rycote's high price. Although it greatly reduces wind noise, don't expect it (or any other product) to eliminate noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Fits Perfectly! Best wind cover you can get for your d50. Nothing beats it. Like another reviewer said, you get what you pay for and that is a high quality windjammer from the highest quality company out there. Other reviewers stated that they have a hard time fitting the cover on the d50. I experienced nothing of the sort. It was easy to get on and off without any issue. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money! Not bad at first however the fibers have a tendency to fall off easily, especially when putting it on the PCM D-50. Once on it works well, this is a classic case of you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wind Champ I've only had a couple of instances to use this fuzzy but so far it has helped reduce wind noise completely in the situations I've dealt with. Very well built compared to DIY solutions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended I use this on the similarly sized Tascam DR-40. It certainly reduces wind induced distortion, but I would say 30 dB is the max. Still, I wouldn't use this recorder without it.
