Don’t record naked! Cover it up and get better audio with the Windslayer

I bought this windscreen for my GoPro Hero 9 to help with my trail running and mountain biking videos. I was not expecting much to be honest, but this Windslayer completely surprised me!

Regarding the windscreen, there is not much to it. It’s essentially just a piece of foam that covers all the built-in mics, however don’t let the simplicity turn you off. I found this to be extremely effective for my vlogging, running and hiking videos, or anything utilizing that front facing mic. The only area this foam struggles is on a chest mount during my MTB rides when the speed is above 12 mph.

To be clear, this will NOT give you production quality sound. If you need that, then I would suggest going with the Media Mod and running wireless mics. But for most of us, I think this Taisioner Windslayer will do the trick. It is far cheaper than the alternative, and you can easily change them out if they rip or get dirty.

I included a bunch of different sample clips at the end of the video, so use the chapter markers to navigate around.
