Tight fitting & neutral smell

This is the second RODE WS2 that I have purchased, as I now have two RODE Procaster microphones, so one for each of them. They are really secure and do not pull off the mic easily. The reduction in plosives is okay, probably not as good as a metal pop shield secured in front of the microphone, however, these are really designed for outside use to prevent wind noise. Thus, you could say that these WS2 are dual-purpose. For now, I am using mine indoors, but I know if I get another Zoom portable recorder, then I could use the WS2 in the field.
When new out of the packet, they have a very slight aroma (you need to touch your nose to it to pick it up), smelling like a new car seat, or faint rubber/plastic smell. It is not bad. The reason I mention is that I have seen reviews at online retailers complaining about the smell. If used in an area where smoking occurs, I would hazard a guess that these foam pad filters would pick up those odours. However, I think that the WS2 is probably washable in warm soapy water and would not take long to dry either once rinsed. So, this is a definite pro, as is the fact that they definitely protect the metal head at the end of the microphone, from dust or even if banged or dropped onto a table etc. Finally, they look good too - there is an aesthetic appeal of a foam windshield sitting on top of a mic.

A Great Windscreen For A Few Reasons
HardBoiledEden 11.10.2019
Besides eliminating plosives all together, the main reason I really like this windscreen is that I find it makes my Procaster a lot warmer sounding. I love it on my voice and it makes the procaster a great answer to the SM7B!

Great quality for the price!

Initially I didn't think much of this microphone, I knew it was a great brand (having already bought more expensive mics from Rode) but I didn't expect much from less then €200 mic.
Rode mics are made in Australia in the Rode factory, so it's not the same design but made in China, it's the real deal!
The mic is awesome, it comes with a beautiful and resistant shockmount and pop filter, plus the windscreen which helps for other mics in the Studio.
Great on vocals and acoustic guitar, I truly reccomend it for beginners because in the end you won't need a €1000 microphone, this works just fine.

Fits AT2020

Bought it for a AT2020, based on previous reviews indicating it fit. Does not disappoint. What more is there to say about a piece of foam which slots over a microphone. It does the job of cleaning up the plosives.
