Makes a great pop filter and wind screen
on March 15, 2012
I used this on my Tascam DR-07 MKII digital recorder. It fits perfect on it and the elastic is strong. When I tested this windscreen, I got real close and said lots of Ps, Ts, and used heavy breathing. No distortion was recorded. While recording, I was in a room with a small echo in it and the echo was not recorded (and this was with full sensitivity of the microphone). I then went outside and tested with moderate wind; no wind noise was picked up. Its build quality is great, but does shed slightly like a dead kitten. I got a couple fibers in my mouth when testing it for voice overs.
Incoming sound is reduced just slightly as with any screen, but its benefits outweigh this effect.
This thing is big, but fits on midsized portable digital recorders nicely. It will add an inch above the mics. It makes your recorder look like one of those troll dolls you put on the end of a pencil eraser. I would have spun it in a circle real fast to check the troll hair effect, but hard to do with a rectangle recorder.
With the Tascam DR-07 MKII, this wind screen does slightly block the earphone plug in, but it will not come off when you have the earphones plugged in. However, it does completely block the external mike jack. Not a problem since you don't use this wind screen attached to your recorder when using an external mic.
I was concerned with the price for a product this simple, but found it was worth it when I received it and got a feel for it.
