Specially designed acoustic foam and synthetic fur achieve up to 25 dB of wind-noise reduction without any adverse effect on high frequencies. While protecting the mic, the specialty foam is impervious to UV and moisture damage making this a trusted tool for years of effective use in the harshest environments.
