Notes and Acoustic Foam Characteristics / Specification.


1. Essential for suppressing plosives
given off naturally in speech and protecting the internal electronics from formites (spittle spray)
- thus extending the clarity and prolonging the life of the internal cardioid receptor from moisture ingress.
Also recommended for outside broadcast use to reduce ‘wind-rush’ and buffer excessive background noises.

Sound degradation is approximately -20 dB noise attenuation at 20°C - whilst keeping high frequency loss around 3~5dB reduction
.
* Depending on size of logo - which should not be so large to impede sound input.

2. Microphone Windshields should be considered a disposable item and replaced regularly in the interests of Health & Hygiene to
prevent the spread of bacterial infection. If they are not replaced regularly, deposits of moisture from spittle spray will coagulate in the
open cells and can lead to the growth of bacterial fungal spores within the foam.
If you require a longer lasting advertising product - look instead at LogoMike® Microphone Flags that will last significantly longer.

3. Acoustic Foam is not UV stable and will fade gradually over time, Lighter shades more effected that darker or Black ones.
White and light coloured acoustic foam especially picks up dirt more quickly during normal use, accelerated through the
electromagnetic properties of the microphones cardioid receptor - so please order adequate quantities accordingly.

4. Rain/wetness will impede sound input during outside broadcast. Adjust audio input levels as necessary and replace Windshield to
protect Microphone cardioid from moisture ingress.
Damp Windshields should be dried naturally at room temperature. Do not wash or
dry clean. We reiterate that Microphone Windshields are a disposable item.

5. HiKoy® Budget Windshields are made to be exceptionally economical for all our customers benefit and we are unable to enter
into protracted correspondence other than this fully detailed specification or produce multiple variation of visuals without making
additional charges.


Guidance Note -
SIZES

6. HiKoy® BUDGET Windshields fit all standard handheld Mic's with a 35 to 50mm dia. diaphragm ball type capsule.
Made in bulk quantities and used by Broadcast Professionals the world over, they represent exceptional value for money.

If in doubt, measure your Mics diaphragm capsule first - consult with your Sound Engineer - or read the RoHS Data Sheet that
would have been supplied with your mic .... or Order a sample pack of 5 Plain budget Windshields ones first for just £4.99 + carriage.

If the size is not suitable you may return them unused by recorded delivery within 14 days for full refund (excludes carriage).

If they are suitable and you then go on to place an order for printed HiKoy® Budget Windshields within 14 days, you may keep the plain ones FREE of charge- and we will still refund your £4.99 which removes any buying risk.

7. With over 1200 Microphone models on the market and new ones coming out all the time also with some sound engineers putting different recording heads on to different shafts to suit particular recording situations - it is the customers responsibility to make sure
the size of our windshield will fit your microphone.

Print limitations on Acoustic Foam


8. Acoustic Foam is not a solid material but full of small holes (see magnified sketch below). Printing on to a surface full of small
holes is highly specialised and a certain amount of compromise is sometimes necessary to make artwork 'work'.
We suggest you look at the logo's on our website to get an idea of what is possible to print on the open cell Acoustic foam surface.

9) Small letters and thin elements that are not thick enough to bridge over the holes in the open cell acoustic foam will disappear
down the holes and become unsightly, unreadable and fragmented. Very small elements such as "®" marks etc are just not possible.
The applied print bridges over the open cell acoustic foam and is unsupported where the holes exist. Logo’s/lettering (especially
small and fine letters / elements) are liable to chip off if subject to excessive abrasion during use. Small elements / lettering reversed out of solid print panels etc invariably require supporting with an underprint colour to match the windshield colour.

10) Artwork supplied should be Vector Artwork, such as Adobe Illustrator up to version CS5
Print colours should be 'spot colours' and can be named with their respective PMS (Pantone Matching System) numbers
but not four colour halftone process colours. We shall match as close as commercially possible to PMS colours but it must be emphasised that print applied to acoustic foam is not like conventional printing onto paper, -5/+5 near match shade tollerences apply.
Artwork should be sent to us direct by email attachment or using the 'Request a Visual Proof' link below and not through any CS6+ Cloud Subscription service or web site links.

11) JPG type Artwork and low resolution Web Graphics made up from pixels (small dots) are NOT
suitable and will not print - the small dots in such artwork would disappear down the holes in the
acoustic foam. However.....
It may be possible to introduce an under-print solid area panel to go under JPG artwork and support
pixelated artwork, as long as the area is not to large to impede sound input.
Additional charges would apply for adapting the artwork. If you do supply JPG or four colour process
artwork it must be 'high resolution' 300 dots dpi - we cannot use low resolution 72 RGB web graphics
.

Magnified surface of open cell Acoustic Foam - a surface that is full of holes and cannot
accept artwork made up from pixels (dots) without creating an solid area under layer
.

 

12) If you are unsure about any of these standard graphical terms, please ask your Graphic Designer to visit our website and / or download the Artwork Template from the 'Artwork' section - (see top level menu heading). All references to the word 'Microphone' throughout our website refer to traditional types of Microphones such as the Shure SM58 (pictured above) etc - and not dictaphones, voice / sound recorders, iphone / android phone recording app devices, etc
