A pop filter is used with microphones to shield the diaphragm from sudden bursts of sound which can cause a popping effect. The shield is "transparent" to sound passage and does not interfere with the movement of sound towards the microphone. Pop filters are commonly seen in recording studios situated between 1" and 8" in front of a microphone. The PS-6 Popper Stopper is widely recognized throughout the recording and post-production communities as the leading tool in pop elimination technology. With a 6" diameter, the highly durable four-layer screen stops plosive consonants such as "p" and "b", while the fully adjustable 14" gooseneck and mic stand clamp ensure flexibility across any number of applications.
