There is a awfull lot to learn about mic's, I'm sure it makes a differance as to what position you have the mic in. I have sat a number of times listening to different mic presentations put on by Bob Heil He makes all kinds of mic's for us Ham radio ops. run a search on his mic's I bet you learn a lot...I have the same problem with wind and traffic noise. Only thing I've found so far is to turn down the mic sensitivity and shout. Don't listen to radio or whatever so that's not a problem. Tried in the past to listen to news but gave up on account of the road/wind noise. Will try the rubber diaphragm trick. I'm guessing that you'd want it slack over the mic to dampen high frequencies - but just a guess.
A: information no matter how old is useless?
B: a two year old topic isn't worth replying to?
A: even a two year old post may contain information of interest to some of us noobs and the reply even though the orriginal poster is nolonger active might have interest to somebody

...... pulled the sock of the mike , I couldn't believe honda put SPEAKER PICK UPS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE MOUTH PIECE. went to hardware store and bought alum tape covered the outside speaker problem FIXED Well almost system is voice activated now i can hear my wife snoring
I taped off the forward facing mic opening on the Mrs. mic and found a reduction in wind noise. Not perfect, but much better.I have the Scala wireless communication headsets and the mic has pick-ups on both sides also. I thought about the tape. I'll give it a try. Can't hurt. Must be a standard in the mic industry.
