    Mini Windjammer for Roland R-05 and Tascam DR-05 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Probably Not Worth It; but it Works! I got this for my Roland R-05 to upgrade from the foam windscreen that came with it. Seemingly the foam windscreen and this Rycote windscreen are the only two options for wind protection on the market. The price was a little high, even though I'm an audio professional that's used to paying chunks of change for seemingly redundant items.. The other claims are true: it doesn't fit over the original foam windscreen and the fur does shed (I wonder how long this thing will keep with longterm use?) It's no surprise that Rycote probably cares very little about this product; the Roland R-05 and Tascam DR-05 are prosumer recorders. I can't imagine there is very much quality control for this windscreen. It's unfortunate, because even though the R-05 doesn't surpass any pro-gear I own, it's a great device and one of the things I was lacking was a good windscreen. So, I got this... and I'm gonna use it. No other choice. I guess my advice to you, the possible future buyer, is maybe DIY your own windscreen. It'll probably cost less than this and might work better.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works but... The good: it fits well and securely (without the original foam windscreen), and it is effective at lowering wind noise. The bad: it sheds all over your hands when touched. Despite the advertised claims that The Mini Windjammer can be used over a foam windscreen or on its own. A touch fastener strap secures the cover in place it does NOT fit over the original foam windscreen and it does NOT include a touch fastener strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with the Tascam DR-05 I have the Tascam DR-05 version 2. It fits on the top without covering the screen or blocking the headphone jack. The elastic band has to be stretched to fit over the top, which means you need two hands to put it on, but it also means it should stay on. Bumping it might knock it off, so be aware. And of course, it does a great job of blocking wind noise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from does what its supposed to do what is there to say, it works. slides right over the stereo mic on the top of the R-05, cuts low and moderate wind much more efficiently than the wind guard that comes with the device. it even has a small slit in the very center so one can still plug in minijack mic or line if necessary without having to remove your furry little friend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok accessory This windjammer is just ok. A little bit expensive in my opinion, given the quality. Overall is a decent buy
