Microphones and Wind
Apart from the size and shape of a windscreen, its internal structure has the greatest influence on its efficiency. For maximum attenuation of wind interference it is important to distinguish between the type of protection appropriate to pressure transducers and that which is best for pressure-gradient designs. In the latter case involving directional microphones, the transducer element should always be surrounded by an enclosed volume, which functions partly as a pressure chamber to cancel interference.
