Foam windshields are essential accessories for virtually every microphone, whether in use indoors or outside.
Indoors, a good windshield helps to prevent loud popping sounds being created when the air from the 'p' and 't' sounds in speech or sung vocals reach the microphone's diaphragm. Outdoors, even a light breeze can cause severe distortion and intermittent popping sounds as it strikes the microphone's diaphragm, but this can be reduced or prevented altogether with a decent windshield.
Rycote make a range of snugly fitting foam windshields for most microphones on the market, from compact, small-diaphragm reporters' models to broadcast and film-sound shotguns and large-diaphragm recording microphones. Made from high-quality, ultra-violet-resistant foam, these windshields are available in a range of colours.
