Decided to do a quick test to see if that furry microphone cover was actually better. It was.

Funnily enough this is the second use of the fan, only we’re not camping this time.



The foam cover that comes with the lapel mic I use is almost completely useless at stopping wind noise. I bought two aftermarket ones - a bigger foam one, and a fur one and I find out if they’re any better - and if the stock one even does anything?

Audio’s a bit bad at the start as the lapel mic can’t be a prop and a microphone at the same time… sorry!
