Rycote

5cm Super-Softie (24/25)

Product Code: 033206

Slip-on Windshield with the new 3D-Tex material and open-cell foam suitable for shotgun microphones only, with slots no further than 5cm from the front of the mic and a diameter of 24-25mm.


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

Super-Softie®

The Super Softie® is a completely new approach to the slip-on windshield. The new shape & open cell structure along with specially designed 3D-Tex™ material provides increased wind attenuation performance compared to conventional slip-on designs. It also achieves improved attenuation in extreme low frequencies and infrasonic frequencies protecting captured audio where wind noise is at its greatest.

3D-Tex™ Material

The Super Softie® windshield is designed with 3D-Tex™, a specially designed new material that combines enhanced acoustic transparency with outstanding attenuation of wind noise without the use of fur. This new material covers an open-cell foam structure rather than a rigid internal chassis to yield virtually no polar pattern distortion.

Ease of Maintenance

The Super-Softie® can be quickly squeezed out and shaken dry when rain-soaked, or rinsed when dust-coated without affecting its performance. This extremely robust design will sustain excellent performance for years of use in challenging environments such as news-gatherings.

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).
