Softie Windshield
The Softie is a slip-on open-cell foam windshield with integral fur cover. This Softie will reduce wind-noise up to 25 dB and is the standard world wide in the broadcast industry. Softie windshields are available in a large range of sizes to fit most popular shotgun microphones.

Both the acoustic, open-cell foam and synthetic fur are made from materials which are specially designed and manufactured for the purpose, and as a result offers very good wind-noise reduction without any adverse effect on High-Frequency. In addition the foam is not susceptible to UV or moisture damage, giving this product great longevity.

Advanced materials, adhesives and assembly techniques all combine to make the Softie an extremely tough product that provides excellent wind protection in the harshest of environments.

  • To fit microphone diameter: 19-22mm
  • Max Wind-noise Attenuation: 25 dB
  • Windshield Internal Length: 120mm
  • Total Windshield Length: 145 mm
  • Rubber diameter: 70mm
  • Overall diameter: 120mm
  • Fur length: 25mm

Remember, the diameter of the microphone is key to a tight fit so you achieve a good seal. Rycote slip-on windshields come in three diameter fittings, Universal (19-25 mm), Standard (19-22 mm) or Large (24-25 mm). This one is the medium or Standard (19-22 mm) size.


InVision Softie Lyre Mount with Pistol Grip
This universal shock-mount, complete with pistol grip, uses the patented Lyre system to provide complete isolation against handling and cable-borne noises. The Softie Lyre Mount has a soft-feel grip moulded into the clip which securely holds the microphone, preventing any slipping or twisting. The Lyres are extremely robust, and virtually unbreakable, as they do not use elastic or rubber components that are prone to wear and tear.

Suitable for shotgun microphones with 19-34mm in diameter.

The Softie Lyre Mount is supplied with a lightweight Pistol Grip handle. The Pistol Grip has an added element of versatility as they have a 3/8" thread fitting for use with a boom pole. For customers who require an on-camera mount, by either hot shoe or 1/4" thread, please see our InVision Video range which uses an identical Lyre mount.
