    WS-11 -Windscreen for DR Series Handheld Recorders is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to put on - and keep on! The wind protection is good, but the sock is not well designed. It's tricky to get on - and it covers and obstructs the line out headphone jack, as the sock needs to stretch past it to stay on. I Have the Tascam DR-40 which although it fits, not much thought went in to actually designing it for that device. There is nothing to actually grip or hold the sock in place other than its elastisized opening, so it invariably slips off every time I put it back in my case/pouch, or if it brushes past someone in a crowded location. I'd try another brand - pretty overpriced for what it is...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect The WS-11 works fine in cutting down wind noise (but not strong gusts) and fits snugly on my DR-40. However, (and this may be a flaw of the DR-40 design) the headphone port gets in the way when you have headphones plugged in. I'm thinking of making a custom hole for the plug by using a paper-hole punch. Another note, and forgive me if Tascam or B&H have already mentioned this in the product description, but the WS-11 is much more effective when the recorder is in the XY position than the AB orientation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good But Not Perfect The WS-11 Windscreen fits onto the end of the DR series hand held recorders. I am using it with the DR-07MKII recorder. It does cut some of the noise to the internal microphones caused by gusts of wind, but it is not perfect. In any case, its still a good accessory for the recorder as long as the wind is not too severe.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handy but expensive Windscreen is handy for outdoor recording, but this item is very pricey for such a small bit of fake fur! Someone with a little sewing skill, a short length of leftover elastic , and some faux fur scraps could put this together for a fraction of the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine The wind screen is easily installed on my DR-05. I appears to reduce wind noise about 16db.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit well, covers headphone jack I thought the tight fit of the Tascam windscreen would hold it on tight. I was wrong. It's tough to get on, which usually takes three hands. And once it's on, touching it too much will shoot the thing off like a rubber band. Plus, it covers up the headphone jack. Some people recommend cutting a hole so you can still use the jack; I recommend getting a Rycote instead.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not perfect If you are used to deadcats on Rode or other mics, the performance of this windscreen will disappoint. It does a decent job in light winds but it is not very effective in strong winds. It does not hold very well on the DR-40 and often slips off the recorder. As others have mentioned, it also covers the headphone/line out port. And the price... It would probably cost Tascam a few cents to include it with the DR-40. As an accessory, it's a rather expensive piece of synthetic fur. Overall, it works but not as well as expected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, but not perfect It does what a windscreen does, so it doesn't fail in that department. But it is hard to adjust the microphones while this is on. It's also hard to get on but easy to get off. But overall it is a good product.
