On the outside, The Windkiller SE (Special Edition) for DPA 4097 or 4099 mic features high-density, soft, multi-pile fur to gradually slow the wind down before reaching your mic. Inside, The Windkiller SE uses a soft and smooth, open material. This allows your mic to sound as transparent as possible, whilst protecting your recordings against harmful wind noises.
The black elastic tab and press stud keeps The Windkiller SE firmly attached to your microphone, whilst seamlessly blending into the windshield to remain discreet.
When fitted correctly, The Windkiller SE holds a bubble of dead air around the front of the mic capsule, allowing the microphone to function as naturally as possible and keeping wind interference at bay.
- Designed to fit the DPA 4097 Micro Shotgun and DPA 4099 Instrument microphones.
- BBI’s much-loved, multi-pile fur for the ultimate protection against wind noise.
- Transparent inner fabric maintains a very natural frequency response, on or off-axis.
- Manufactured in Denmark with quality and comfort in mind by sound lovers, for sound lovers
The Bubblebee Sidekick 3 In-Ear IFB Monitor is a virtually invisible IFB cuing & communications earpiece designed to deliver a superior experience in invisibility, comfort and sound intelligibility.
It features the most advanced driver technology ever in such a small earpiece. The new durable and resilient transducers sailed through extensive testing with flying colours achieving up to 3 x higher tolerances than previous versions.
The NEW DRIVER TECHNOLOGY offers…
- IMPROVED MICRO-DRIVER
The Sidekick 3 features BBI’s best ever micro speaker driver solution, where the entire driver fits comfortably in the ear canal. This eliminates the need for acoustic tubes, resulting in practically invisible, crystal-clear cues, even in noisy environments.
- LEVEL UP YOUR AUDIO
The newly designed driver has an extended frequency response, delivering an entirely improved listening experience. The Sidekick 3 is tough and resilient, tested with up to 3 x higher tolerances than previous Sidekick versions.
- VERSATILE VOLUME CONTROL
A lower impedance driver allows a greater range of volume control so The Sidekick 3 can be used just as easily with a lower output device, such as directly plugged into a mobile phone, as it can with professional IFB and IEM receivers.
- UNIVERSAL FIT
Gone are the days of Mono L and Mono R. The Sidekick 3 has a universal fit for either ear.
- A NEW CABLE LOOP
The unique new cable loop guides the cable neatly behind the ear, hidden from sight, so that The Sidekick 3 is virtually invisible when worn correctly.
The Sidekick 3 driver unit is so small that it is not visible when worn in the ear. Coupled with the transparent cable, this makes it incredibly hard to see from most angles.
The Sidekick 3’s cable is 44% thinner than the first generation cable with a diameter of only 33μm. The colour neutral cable easily blends into almost any background without being noticed on camera.
- HIGH QUALITY ROUND SOUND
A new “Round” eartip has been added which provides an increase in frequency definition in the lower frequencies, for a much more rounded sound. The original Satellite and Christmas Tree eartips are still included with your Sidekick 3 so that you can choose just the right amount of ambience for the job.
AVAILABLE IN THE SIDEKICK SPARES KIT
If you’d like the new “Round” eartip for your Sidekick V1 or V2, it has been added to the Sidekick Spares Kit so you can experience an increased frequency definition using older generations of The Sidekick.
Comes in Mono or Stereo…

NEW PRODUCT RELEASE: Bubblebee Industries launches three new Lav Concealers for Deity and Sony Lavalier mics
Introducing the first professional Lav Concealers for the Sony ECM-77, Deity W.Lav Pro and Deity W.Lav Micro lavalier microphones.
The Lav Concealer has been adopted by sound professionals all over the world as their lavalier mount of choice. Using a combination of soft, shock-absorbent, natural rubber and metal fabric guards, The Lav Concealer is super effective at reducing unwanted noise and fabric rustle, that can occur when mic’ing up your subject.
The Lav Concealers for the Deity W.Lav Pro and Deity W.Lav Micro have been made to measure, promising excellent consistency holding the mic in exactly the correct position, offering enhanced shock and friction protection for the mic giving you an all-round professional mounting option.
With the Lav Concealer for the ECM-77 you now have more options for mic placement for when a less visible mic is needed and this opens up a heap of new possibilities. The ECM-77 is included with Sony’s UWP-D Pro wireless kits and commonplace with the DWX system too.
