RYCOTE super-softie, 15cm 19/22mm
Slip-on Windshield with the 3D-Tex material and open-cell foam suitable for shotgun microphones only, with slots no further than 15cm from the front of the mic and a diameter of 19 to 22mm. The Super-Softie with our material 3D-Tex combines superb wind noise reduction with excellent acoustic transparency.
Excellent noise reduction and weather durability: the Super-Softie retains the excellent wind noise reduction of a conventional cavity windshield but allies it to a novel aerodynamic shape and surface structure, and to a material, 3D-Tex, which combines excellent acoustic transparency with superb attenuation of wind noise. It has no rigid internal structure, so causes virtually no polar pattern distortion and is extremely robust in challenging environments such as news-gathering. If it becomes rain-soaked it can be squeezed out and shaken dry very quickly, if it becomes coated with dust it can be rinsed quickly without affecting its performance. The shape & structure of the Super Softie allow it to reduce wind noise at extreme LF and infrasonic frequencies - where the greatest wind energy lies - more efficiently than previous designs.
