These are attractive, appear durable, and perform well at reducing wind noise. The impact on high frequencies was minimal but I did notice a slight reduction in overall level. I’d recommend them as they are fantastic but wish they were not made in China as that country is absolutely despicable!
The Movo WST180 Ballistic Nylon Windscreen that I purchased to use with my Zoom F1 Field Recorder and SGH-6 Shotgun Mic is a great combination! It fits appropriately, works great in reducing plosives, cuts wind noise, and looks great. I am very pleased with my purchase and look forward to many years of indoor and outdoor recording.
Great customer service Great product.
For the price, these are a no brainer IMO 😎 👍 I have used just about every windscreen known to man, as far as the slip on windscreens are concerned, and these are my favorite ones by far, especially for their low cost!!! They're also extremely well made and the build quality certainly doesn't justify the low price, because Movo could easily charge MORE for their screens if they wanted to (but I hope that they keep their costs low LoL 😁).
I LOVE the rubber stopper on the back that slides on nice and tight, but doesn't leave any blemishes or marks on my microphones even after very heavy usage the last 5 years or so. But the rubber back on them is just as nice, if not nicer, than even the Rycote equivalent slip on/softie style screens (at least on the older Rycote softie models I've played around with), because they have such a nice and tight grip on the body of the mics, that NO wind or air can get inside the back of the mics & screens, and is one of my favorite things about these. Without shelling out big bucks and going for a blimp or Rycote BBG's, these are plenty good enough for the live location audio recording that I do (aka taping of live music with stereo pairs of Schoeps mics), which is sometimes far away from the stage/speakers. If the wind is THAT severe, there's going to be a good amount of phasing anyway, regardless of the windscreens or blimps used IMO!!!
So far I have used a few models of the Movo screens and have liked them ALL. I currently have/own the WST-50's above, which I love because they're all black and DON'T have any fur covering. Besides, the ballistic nylon design looks really cool too!!!
Overall I HIGHLY recommend these screens, ESPECIALLY for their low cost, and I've already recommended these to a TON of my taper friends, who also really enjoy using these. Thanks again to Movo for making such high quality products for a very reasonable price! You have a lifetime customer from me!!!
I've been using the MOVO WST50 windscreens on my AKG C480B microphones with great success. No more wind noise.
I recently bought a pair of used AKG C568EB "short shotgun" microphones and needed windscreens for them. It wasn't exactly clear from the web description (or an email with MOVO) whether the WST180 would fit, but now that I have them in hand, I see that they fit perfectly. The interior depth of the WST568 is 165 mm to the contact point of the rubber collar. The interference slots on the body of the C568EB end at 158 mm, so the windscreen extends 7 mm past the last slot. Can't wait to get it out in a breeze!
