Pop Goes the Filter

WindTech thinks it has a new take on the pop filter

Pop filters are a wonderful thing but they can be cumbersome or simply get in the way.

Microphone accessories maker WindTech thinks it has a solution in the PopGard PG-2000. The PopGard is a small pop filter designed to mount directly onto the microphone, notably side-address designs.

Two elastic bands hold the PopGard’s business end stable in front of the diaphragm. Such a mounting scheme allows the mic to be moved easily, with the PopGard remaining in place. A microphone with a PopGard mounted could be handheld.

The PopGard PG-2000, made in the United States, will fit mics 46–68 millimeters in diameter. Its screen is hydrophobic.

Price: $39.95.
