Unique Design. Individually Hand-Built.

The Cyclone range represents the pinnacle of wind and shock isolation available for audio professionals. By successfully addressing the design challenges presented by the introduction of multiple microphones, Rycote is now able to offer the stunning performance of Cyclone for stereo microphone applications.

Rycote's unique design approach has enabled them to keep overall size as compact as possible – so most Stereo Cyclone models feature Small or Medium Cyclone basket sizes.

Each and every Stereo Cyclone windshield is individually hand-built by highly-skilled Rycote technicians.

A Sleek & Improved Connbox Design

Designed specifically for internal cable routing, isolation and vibration reduction, the original Connbox was redesigned for stereo and multi-channel microphone configurations.

Each Connbox has been uniquely built for a specific mic setup. Every wire and connector has been precisely measured to offer maximum performance.

This completely effective and ready-to-use solution to connection problems means you don't have to worry—just plug in your microphones!

Outstanding Mic Shock-Isolation

Rycote uses its Lyre® microphone suspension to reduce the bulk of shock and handling noise. Stereo Cyclone also features the Rycote Floating Basket Suspension* (patent Pending): an innovative design that prevents natural resonances and vibrations from bypassing the main suspension and radiating from the structure of the basket itself (an effect known as 'acoustic re-radiation').

Stereo Cyclone takes the Lyre principle and incorporates it into the portions of the suspension that connect directly to the basket; the entire structure 'floats', isolating problem internal vibrations originating from boom poles and other sources.

Stereo configurations are particularly susceptible to the effects of acoustic re-radiation since more microphones point at the overall surface of the basket. That's why Rycote incorporated the Floating Basket Suspension. The result is a windshield with superb vibration isolation.

Acoustically Transparent

Like our existing Cyclone range, Stereo Cyclone features an open-cell structure consisting of curved contours and no straight or parallel surfaces. This design greatly reduces room-tone effects inherent in conventional tubular windshield designs.

The aerodynamic, asymmetric basket design and unique, acoustically transparent 3D-Tex® material provide enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance.

Industry-Leading Wind Protection

The unique design of Cyclone shifts the overall bulk to the basket front. This aerodynamically-efficient asymmetric basket, covered with 3D-Tex material, provides enormous benefits in terms of surface turbulence and acoustic impedance, resulting in wind-noise reduction comparable to the combined modular-style windshield/fur cover performance. In truly extreme weather conditions, an optional Cyclone Windjammer can be used to deliver wind-noise reduction that far exceeds any other windshield system available today.

Easy Removal and Attachment

The windshield can be removed from or attached to the suspension in an instant using just one hand, allowing audio professionals to capture the best possible audio at any moment in any environment. This is the unique benefit of Rycote's Z-Locking System. Reassembly is automatic as components magnetically snap into perfect alignment.

Low Maintenance


Location sound mixers require equipment that will not only withstand extreme conditions, but also maintain consistent performance. Maintenance is often a time-consuming, yet necessary evil. The Stereo Cyclone's 3D-Tex was developed for both outstanding performance and ease of maintenance. Dust it off after mild use or rinse and air dry after heavy use to maintain outstanding, transparent, and consistent performance for years of faithful use.

Since the launch of Rycote's hugely popular flagship windshield Kit—the Cyclone—customers have been asking for stereo versions. Rycote listened, and began an intensive, detailed cycle of product development to date.

The Rycote Stereo Cyclone range features a comprehensive selection of professional windshield kits, designed for the popular stereo techniques, such as X/Y, Mid-Side and Double Mid-Side, as well as models designed for Single Mic and Ambisonic mic applications.

Each model has been individually designed to perfectly complement specific, popular stereo microphone combinations. Whether it’s for production sound, broadcast, audio for gaming or wildlife recording—if you use stereo recording to create directionality, perspective, space, atmosphere and realism—there's a Stereo Cyclone model that's perfect for you!
