Hands On: Pauly Ton Pauly Superscreen


The pop filter isn’t something most of us devote much thought to — heck, some panty hose stretched over a coat hanger might do the job, right? Well, Pauly Ton believes it’s time to change your thinking! The Pauly Superscreen is a high-end pop filter designed after years of research into the acoustic properties and materials of pop-filter design. Each one is handmade in Germany and comes with a proprietary gooseneck. The gooseneck is great — it stays where you put it and doesn’t make any noise.

In use, the Superscreen is totally transparent — I couldn’t hear it in my vocal tracks at all when doing A/B comparisons, except for the obvious: plosives were totally tamed when it was in place.

With the Pauly Ton Pauly Superscreen, I feel like I’ve finally found a pop filter that doesn’t impact the sound captured by my carefully selected vocal microphones. If purity of sound matters to you, then the Superscreen is your pop filter.
