The WRF-H4N Foam Windscreen for the Zoom H4n or Tascam DR-40X is made from specialty acoustic foam designed to reduce broadband wind noise with minimal high frequency loss. The density of the foam is optimized to help protect the microphone elements from wind pressure without dramatically muffling the sound.
This windscreen is most effective in calm to light breeze conditions (0-7 mph), and can be used indoors for protection against drafts caused by air-conditioners. It also reduces vocal plosives in close microphone placement situations. Users can generally expect a 4 to 8 dB reduction in wind noise, with very slight dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the very slight high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the notable wind noise reduction.
The WRF-H4N's foam is hypoallergenic and washable and helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone. The windscreen is designed to fit over the microphones of the Zoom H4n or Tascam DR-40X handheld recorder.
