Audio-Technica Releases New Pop Filter for Its 20 Series Microphones

Designed for added protection against plosive consonants

Audio-Technica has introduced the AT8175 Microphone Pop Filter, which, according to the company, is designed for up-close use to assist in reducing excessive pressures on the microphone’s element.

Per an Audio-Technica press release, the AT8175 is custom-designed to clip onto the front of A-T 20 Series side-address mics. “The AT8175 provides added protection against plosive consonants (such as “p’s” and “b’s,” etc.), without any compromise to the audio quality,” says the company.
