Auray WSS-2012 overview

  • 1Description

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-2012 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 12cm and is designed for use with many shotgun microphones. It features a specially manufactured open-cell foam matrix surrounded by a layer of 25mm-thick simulated rabbit 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 (4-25 mph) and users can generally expect a 24dB to 40dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the negligible high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the dramatic wind noise reduction.

In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2012 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Sony and others.

The WSS-2012 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

    Auray WSS-2012 reviews

    WSS-2012 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones - (12cm) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive performance for on-camera mike! I'm using this on on a short audio-technics shotgun mike, mounted on a Sony FS5. It substantially cuts wind noise down to almost nothing. All low-end rumble is gone. High-end hiss barely discernible during gusts. This has really improved audio and, as a result, production quality, all around. This is much, much better than just the foam cover. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Windshield Just started using today. Winds around 15mph. Used it on an Audio-Technica AT875R mic and a Sony HRX-NX3/1 and it worked perfectly. Very quiet. I shoot a lot of landscape video and wind noise is always a problem. This windshield is just what the Dr. ordered.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well in 20 MPH winds We used this windshield for the first time today. The winds were blowing around 20 miles per hour. It outperformed my expectations for a windshield. It was well-worth the investment and will be great for the on-demand outdoor shots in the wind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great on a sailboat! We do a lot of shooting on moving sailboats. This works very well. It's lightweight and very effective.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windy outdoor location shoots? It's worth every cent! I've been shooting and producing training videos and mini-documentaries since 1983. My video world was severely rocked when, in 2005, I started producing aviation and military training videos that pretty much moved my video canvas outdoors... and into the wind and rain. I still haven't found any equipment that can make it stop raining, but I finally solved my wind problems... when I bought an Auray WSS-2012 windshield for the AT875R shotgun mic on my Sony PXW-X70 camcorder. I bought the windshield over 3 months ago, but I've withheld reviewing it until now because I wanted to be sure that the incredible results that I have been enjoying were for real... and that they would continue into the future. I'm currently in post on a 9-11 episode that includes many outdoor segments that were shot in 15+ mph winds and gusts. Although I fully expected to spend some time in Reaper tweaking the audio, it just wasn't necessary for most of the clips. It's almost as if someone had turned off the wind. Because the Auray WSS-2012 does such a great job at controlling wind noise, I am now no longer reluctant to take on projects with extensive outdoor segments. This means that I can now shoot more video and worry less about audio. I'm generally hard to please, but I'm now a very happy camper!
