Rode WS8 overview

  • 1Description

The WS8 Deluxe Windshield from Rode Microphone is an easy-to-use high-performance windshield for microphones of 0.79” (20mm) diameter and 1.06” (27mm) capsule depth. It is designed for use with the NT5, NT55, and NT6 small diaphragm condenser microphones.

Designed to reduce wind noise when recording in adverse environmental conditions, the WS8 Windshield combines an open-cell foam surround with an outer layer of acoustically transparent artificial fur. A rubber base prevents any wind noise from entering the rear of the microphone pickup area.

    Rode WS8 reviews

    WS8 Deluxe Windshield is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cuts the wind effectively! I bought a pair of these to go with my Rode NT55 matched pair, and they work well. But also this windshield fits on my AudioTechnica AT4053b hypercardioid mic I use for indoor dialog on a boom, or mounted on my camera. I found that now I can take that mic outdoors, rather than use my much larger shotgun. The WS8 doesn't cut strong wind completely, but I took it outside in 15-20mph gusts, and it lowered the rumble considerably. For normal use in low - medium breeze it works great. Ans whatever rumble I got with high winds was easily removable in post. I am happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb for what it is I frequently use my Rode NT5's outdoors, as I am a sound designer, and I'm often recording things that aren't easy or are outright impossible to do indoors, such as throwing things, recording vehicles, etc. Obviously, the foam windscreens the mics come with are not up to the task of outdoor recording. The WS8's do a very good job cutting down wind noise, and are very convenient in that they just slip right onto the mics, rather than having the foam and the fur as separate pieces, as with some other options. Also nice is that they have a rubber gasket at the base of them to keep wind from blowing in from behind. Another thing they are very useful for is keeping the microphones clean. If you're recording something messy, such as mud, or you're flinging snow around, they can help keep that off the mic itself. Now, these are, of course, not nearly as effective as any kind of blimp or zeppelin style of windscreen, but the WS8 is substantially cheaper than those. If you need the ultimate in wind protection, you're probably going to want something along the lines of a Rycote Baby Ball Gag, but if you simply need good wind protection, instead of extreme wind protection, and you don't want to spend a ton of money, these are perfect. On a side note, when I first received these, one of the two was fairly difficult to get onto the mic, as it was a VERY tight fit. However, as I have now used them a fair bit, it slips on just fine, while still being sufficiently snug to keep wind out. So if you get some and they're hard to get on at first, just allow them a little time to break-in before you think they are faulty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well This is a windscreen for a small amount of wind. If you need anymore of a reduction you'll need to go to a blimp and shotgun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my Audix SCX1-HC mic I bought this in hopes it would fit on my mic,a nd it fits like a glove. PERFECT! I use this mic for indoor interview audio and needed a bit of fur to help with breathe reduction.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good windshield. Good price It's hard to beat this windshield for the price. Blocks a ton of wind. I do wish there was a way to hold it on the mic a little tighter (I am using it on a Rode M5)
