Replacement windscreen for HS70 headset
by motnik on 2012-10-07 21:03:35

Short and sweet: where can I find replacement windscreens for HS70 headsets, both black and tan?

Thank you very much!

Theseare the closest that I've been able to find.

The foam "pompom" may have a larger outside diameter than you expect, but they should work OK.

I find that tiny drops of clear silicon "goo" sealant (carefully applied to the side barrel of the mic head from the head of a pin) work really well to prevent foam windscreens falling off.

The silicon goo is relatively easy to scrape off for subsequent re-application when replacement's eventually needed.

Hi Ron, thanks a lot for the suggestions! I will give them a try, however the reviews state they are a little bulky. What do think about using windscreens for Countryman E6 for the HS70? The mic capsules seems to be fairly comparable in size?

P.S.:I wish Line 6 would offer replacement windsceens in their web shop.

Re your heartfelt P.S.

...So do I, ...man, so do I ! 

Those Countryman foamies will be perfect, fitting far better than Amazon's Tetra-Teknica "dozen for the price of one", but (like nearly all of the "brand name" ones out there) it is a heck of a lot to pay for a few square millimetres of expanded polyurethane.

Generally speaking, however, my preference is for the better blast filtering and road-shock protection afforded by oversize windgags, even if I do have to resort to my "Silastic Goo" technique to keep them on.

Just remember to keep any such "goo" to a minimum, ...well clear of the microphones' acoustic inlet openings.
