Auray WSS-2018 Overview

The Auray WSS Series Professional Windshields deliver superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. They are engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high-frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

This WSS-2018 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 7" and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 0.9" thick simulated fur. This diffusion technology lowers wind velocity in a controlled air space around the microphone, thereby reducing wind noise without muffling the sound. It also features an airtight tapered rubber base that seals out wind from the rear of the microphone, greatly improving isolation and rear-wind protection.

When used on a shotgun microphone, this slip-on windshield is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to strong breeze conditions (4 to 25 mph), and you can generally expect a 24 to 40 dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies.

In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2018 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Rode, Sennheiser, Sanken, Sony, and others.

The WSS-2018 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

Yes. See below dimensions ( the depth spec does work, as 7.1 " is more than enough to cover the mic element / side vents.

question

What suspends the mic inside? I'm wondering how this works with a boom pole -- I'm familiar with a Rycote suspension where the pole connects to the blimp handle.

question

Does it reduce indoor fan noises? Heating vents, computer fans, etc.?
Asked by: Malcolm T.
This thing protects the mic capsule from wind striking the capsule. It does not negate or filter out any ambient sounds. So unless that computer fan or heating exhaust is blowing on the capsule, it will have zero effect on those issues.

question

Will this fit a Sennheiser MKE 400?
Asked by: Scott D.
It might fit over the shotgun barrel but it is probably much too long and will have a empty gap past the tip of the shotgun. This windscreen fits well on a ME 66.
