The Rycote WS 9 Modular Windshield Kit reduces wind noise for compact condenser microphones in various environments, but this comes at a high cost for what you receive and, in my opinion, is not worth the expense.

Here are the key features of this costly kit:

  1. Compatibility: The WS 9 kit suits Sennheiser MKH8020, 8040, 8090, and 8050 microphones.
  2. Wind Noise Attenuation: It reduces wind noise by up to 35 dB.
  3. Components Included:
    • WJ9 Windjammer: To further minimize wind noise.
    • XLR Holder MKII: For secure microphone attachment.
    • Boom Pole Adapter: Allows mounting on a boom pole.
    • Pistol Grip Handle with Lever: Provides comfortable handling.
    • XX-Small Suspension: Ensures shock isolation.
    • CB9 Connbox: Manages cable connections.
    • Single Lyre 62 (19/25): Additional shock absorption.
    • Brush and Hex Head Key: Handy accessories.

Whether you’re working on film, broadcast TV, wedding videography, or sound design, the Rycote WS 9 Modular Windshield Kit ensures clean audio capture by minimizing wind interference. It’s a valuable addition to your microphone setup!

Final Thoughts:  There is no way this is worth the asking price of around USD 700.00!! If you need a better solution, try the Rycote Nano line - it is much better!
