I'm considering getting one of these recorders. I assume it'll need a winds=
creen, and according to the manual, it doesn't come with one. I also assume=
 that a furry one is better than foam.

On the B&H website, I see a Sony one and a Rycote one. They claim 20dB wind=
 noise reduction for the Sony, and 30-40dB for the Rycote. Can I believe th=
ese figures?

For the Rycote, they say "Fits over existing windscreen". What existing win=
dscreen? Is this perhaps just an error, transcribed from the notes for anot=
her recorder's windscreen?

In the single customer review for each type, for the Sony the customer reco=
mmends not bothering with a windscreen. For the Rycote, the customer says i=
t's good, but falls off.

Can anyone recommend either of these, or another?
