Good Quality Studio & Broadcast Microphone Pop Filter for your Vocal Recording Setup
A pop filter is one of the simplest ways you can improve the quality of your vocals. They help to reduce the effect of what are known as ‘plosives’ – explosive consonants, such as ‘p’ and ‘b’ sounds. Words that start with these letters tend to produce a burst of air, which your microphone’s diaphragm will pick up, and causes your input level to spike. The result is popping sounds in your recordings, or even an overloaded signal with resulting distortion.The pop screen counters this effect, hence the name! As the words are spoken and these bursts of air move towards the microphone, the air molecules become dispersed and broken up by the fabric, preventing these bursts of air from having an impact on the microphone’s diaphragm.
