I haven't tested how much better the wind protection may or may not be with=
 the Rycote, but at work I supply these M10 recorders to students as basic =
recording kits (some with DSM mics from Sonic Studios) and I first bought t=
he Rycote ones on spec, but indeed they do fall right off the M10, and I tr=
ied several.  And they don't even seem to fully cover the mics; there seems=
 to be a bit of a gap on the sides since they fit so loosely.  You just hav=
e to give it a little shake for it to come off, and forget about it staying=
 on in a bag. Surprising because obviously Rycote makes good stuff, and I d=
o like their windscreen for my D50 (though it's not perfect either).  The S=
ony windscreen fits the M10 very securely, and stays on.  I returned the Ry=
cote screens and bought Sonys, and they're working great.  Very clear choic=
e he in my view.
