Pop Filter

A pop filter is used with microphones to shield the diaphragm from sudden bursts of sound which can cause a popping (see WFTD archive “pop“) effect. The shield is transondent (see WFTD archive “transondent“) and does not interfere with the movement of sound towards the microphone. Pop filters, which usually look like a 6″ to 8″ circle of mesh material, are commonly seen in recording studios situated between 1″ and 8” in front of a microphone.
