Windscreen Use the standard windscreen for general voice and instrumental applications. Use the supplied A7WS windscreen for close-talk applications, such as voice-overs or radio announcements, as it offers maximum protection from plosive breath noise and creates a warmer, more intimate sound. To install the A7WS, follow these instructions:
To avoid tearing the windscreen during removal, grip it from the plastic ring and the base and remove by gently pulling and twisting.
If desired, adhere the supplied Velcro strips around the microphone grille, approximately one inch from the base of the grille to hold the new windscreen in place.
Install the A7WS windscreen by stretching over the Velcro strips, then squeezing at the base of the windscreen to adhere to the Velcro. No Velcro strip inside the windscreen is needed, as the windscreen itself adheres to the Velcro. To remove, grip at the base of the windscreen and pull while twisting.
