15cm Super-Softie (19/22)

Product Code: 033202

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 19-22mm.


Main Benefits:

  • Novel shape and 3D-Tex give greatly improved wind noise reduction compared to conventional “soft" windshields.
  • A true cavity design, with superb performance at extreme low frequencies (where wind noise is worst).
  • A rough-service windshield, robust enough for the most challenging news-gathering situations.
  • High immunity to rain-soaking, and maintains excellent acoustic transparency in almost all situations

Sharing Options

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.

Finding the correct slip-on windshield will depend on the type, length and diameter of the microphone. Slip-on windshields are designed for cylindrical shotgun mics, ranging from 19-25 mm in diameter.

For any windshield to work effectively it must cover all the ports on the microphone. Therefore a 12 cm slip-on windshield would be suitable for shotgun microphones, with slots no further than 12 cm from the front of the mic.

The diameter of the microphone is also key, as the fit must be tight in order to achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm) or Large (24-25 mm).
