Rycote Super-Softie – Various Sizes
Rycote Super-Softie – Various Sizes 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.
- 19/22 – Suitable for microphones with a diameter between 19mm and 22mm
- 24/25 – Suitable for microphones with a diameter between 24mm and 25mm
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. 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 Rycote Super-Softie – Various Sizes 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.
