    Pop filters

    Hello there people of HR, I would like to make an inquiry about the metal pop filter

    I've bought a mesh pop filter recently for $50 SGD and it apparently doesn't work all that great. It does remove that false peaking in the sound, but the ''boom" is still there, which makes it not ideal for me. Also, I heard metal pop filters alters some frequencies, is that true?

    Metal filters can change the sound, as can also nylon filters.

    Th Hĺkan P110 Pop Killer is a foam filter with specially selected foam that will not colour the sound - also the foam is hydrophobic so that is will not absorb moisture that will also colour the sound.

    I have attached a picture of the data sheet:-

    I use a hanger and a nylon sock. Works fine.

    If a mesh filter isn't working, you are way too close to the Mic. You can also get rid of most of it by not singing directly into the Mic. Raise the Mic up and point it at the bridge of your nose about 6 inches to a foot away.

    Don't sing directly at the mic and you don't even need a pop filter

    I would ALWAYS use a pop filter if for no other reason but to prevent everyone's (including my own) spit from hitting the mic/capsules...unless we're talking $100 mics.

    I always use one as well and would always recommend using one, I was just saying you can do without.

    I remember one time back during band days we had to remove the head/metal mesh off of some mics that we used for vocals on stage....and WOW!!!...the amount of nasty looking gunk that was all over everything was disgusting.
    Of course, this was also back when smoking in bars was allowed, so that didn't help any.

    Hahaha. Like sharing a mic after a singer with real bad breath has used it. There's nothing as foul. After a while I bought my own mic to take to gigs.
