Rycote HC-22 Shotgun Microphone

The HC-22 is a  high-quality hypercardioid shotgun microphone (22cm Long Directional Mono Mic w/ 3-pin XLR Connection) designed for a wide range of applications in cinema, TV, ENG, live broadcast, sound design, studio and field recording. This mic offers performance equal to or better than many of the more expensive professional microphones, while also offering a self-noise level lower than almost any equivalent sized shotgun mic at any price.

The HC-22 combines a highly directional polar pattern with extremely low self-noise. This provides solid off-axis rejection and isolation with a precise sound quality to match, making the HC-22 a great all around mic for recording environments which may require a more focused recoding appraoch.

This microphone reproduces an accurate reflection of what is being recorded. The mic offers a crisp sound with some additional warmth. How warm will vary ear-to-ear but the mics are somewhere in the middle — not quite as warm as a really warm mic and far from sounding sterile.

Rycote Perfect for Windshield Sennheiser MKH 416

Rycote now offer a smaller and specialised Windshield solution for the Sennheiser MKH 416. Rycote have tailored the Windshield Modular WS 3 kit with special lyres and a right angled XLR plug (to reduce internal length of the mic). This provides a smaller profile compared to the WS 4 which was previously the option for the 416.

The ideal choice for a professional standard. An industry standard for a variety of professional recording situations in broadcast, radio and television, Sennheiser’s MKH 416 shotgun microphone deserves the best wind and handling noise protection available. That’s why we designed the Windshield Kit, 416. Featuring our genuine, patented Lyre® technology, Rycote basket windshield, premium short XLR connectors (incorporated from our advanced Cyclone® range) and professional-quality Mogami cable, it’s perfect for the Sennheiser MKH 416.*

Modular Suspension

Rycote modular suspensions provide complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, by supporting the microphone in a cradle arrangement using Lyre suspension webs.


The Windshield basket completely surrounds the microphone and its connector, sliding onto the Modular Suspension to provide up to 30dB of wind noise attenuation. This is the first layer of wind-shielding protection for your microphone.


The Windjammer introduced by Rycote in 1985, is high quality synthetic fur covers, designed to fit perfectly over the Modular Windshield. It gives an additional 20dB of wind noise attenuation. Fitted with a drawstring & toggle to allow snug and easy fitting. Modular Windshield Kits, including zipped Windjammer are also available on request.

  • Cable, XLR-3M to Angled XLR-3F, 260mm
