Auray WSS-2005 Overview

The Auray Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones (1.9") delivers superior 360° wind protection with acoustic transparency. It is engineered for dramatic reduction of unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with very little high-frequency loss, for exceptionally accurate recordings.

This WSS-2005 Professional Windshield has an inside depth of 5cm and is designed for use with short 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 short 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 24 to 40 dB reduction in wind noise with negligible dampening of high frequencies.

In addition to superior 360° wind protection, the WSS-2005 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit microphones from AKG, Azden, Beyerdynamic, Neumann, Schoeps, and others.

The WSS-2005 Professional Windshield for Shotgun Microphones is an advanced solution for outstanding wind protection with acoustic transparency.

Nice snug fit on the AT4053. And a little less money than Rycote. Gets the job done on windy days in the city. Can't complain.

I have only had this windscreen (WSS-2005 Professional Windshield - Auray) for two weeks. I have used in a high wind situation, and it cut all wind noise out - a real pleasure. It will make post production much easier. No more trying to filter out the wind noise. It is larger than the cheaper wind screen I had before, but the cost and size is going to be worth it. Keith

Great fuzzy for AT4053b

Fits the AT 4053b great, and works well. Won't be great in heavy winds, but that's another category of product.

Woks perfect

question

Is this one good for outdoor general ambient sound recording?
Asked by: Zhuang M.
Mics are extremely sensitive to wind, especially directional mics such as shotgun mics. A windshield is a necessity for outdoor recording. The windshields are available in multiple lengths and diameters to fit a variety of mics.
