I bought this to use with an AKG C747 mic which I have found to be very prone to "popping" when the person using it gets too close. This wind shield definitely cuts down a lot of that "popping", as well as reducing breathing noise. The foam seems to be very good quality and it is a perfect fit on the mic. It doesn't seem to have any significant on the sound or pickup of the mic and I think the price is reasonable for a fitted wind shield like this. The only negative I can find is that it makes a very discrete mic like the C747 a lot more visible, but that is an unavoidable point when using a windshield like this. Overall, I would recommend it for anyone using a C747 or C47 capsule.
