Microphone Covers & Windscreens

Protect your microphone from noise and vibration. Use professional microphone covers to record clear speech and clean sounds in indoor or outdoor locations.

When doing interviews or recording speeches, it’s important to choose a reliable microphone to capture voices seamlessly. Nothing’s more frustrating than hearing the best part of the talk distorted by noise. To avoid ruining your soundbites, pair your microphone with a wind muff or windscreen.

What is a windscreen?

Windscreens are used to cover the microphone head and block noise from blowing winds. Also known as“dead cat” or “wind muff,” these audio accessories make sure voices are recorded without the unwanted howls and muffling. 

Windscreens are typically made from foam or synthetic fur. They come in many shapes and sizes to fit different kinds of mics. We have tiny muffs for lavalier, iPhone, and GoPro microphones, as well as a big ones for digital recorders and shotgun mics. 

Fur or foam microphone cover?

The windscreen material determines its noise-blocking capacity.

Foam wind muffs are ideal for studio recording because they block the least amount of wind. TheMovo WST180 is a good choice if you have a 16-cm shotgun microphone. Its acoustic foam technology can reduce wind noise by 24dB to 40dB.

If you will record in busy environments, we recommend going for furry wind muffs. The fur material blocks strong winds whole allowing your target sound to pass through without losing its quality. Opt for universal outdoor windscreens for lavalier mics like the Movo WS10n. It fits any brand of lapel and does a good job of diffusing background noise.
