Experimental Determination of the Effectiveness of Microphone Wind Screens
The main objective in wind screening of microphones is to provide a reduction in wind response without affecting the signal response of the microphone. Measurements have been carried out indoors employing a wind generator and correlated with outdoor measurements under natural conditions of moderate wind velocities. Experimental data have been obtained relating the wind noise to the volume of the wind screen, the type of material used in covering the wind screen, and the number of layers of material used in covering the wind screen.
