Aston Halo Reflection Filter - Black

Hi-tech, patented PET felt reflection filter featuring linear absorption and diffusion
MFR# AST-SHADOW

Product Description

The Aston HALO Reflection Filter is the first of a series of reflection filter products planned by Aston Microphones. In a market awash with differing versions of an aging design concept, the Aston HALO is a huge leap forward in reflection filter technology.

There are several key areas on which Aston focussed on improving currently available technology, most notably for Isolation, absorption, mounting hardware and the general performance as a studio tool for achieving portable room control.

PATENTED DESIGN, ENHANCED PERFORMANCE

HALO’s unique design is also patented… it’s much bigger, wraps around top and bottom to a maximum rear depth of almost 100 mm to improve room isolation and absorption without dominating the room sound. Its textured and wave-formed surface also helps diffuse direct sound.

Market research revealed that many people have a hard time attaining a good performance when using other reflection filters because they do not provide a very ‘creative-friendly’ environment. The HALO’s form and color scheme is designed to create a more ‘organic-feeling’ space for the performer to work with.

The combination of radically improved performance in almost every area of currently available technology, while paying special attention to both the green credentials of manufacturing (as with mic packaging which is 100% recyclable and 84% recycled material), and to the creative element that the artist requires in their performance environment to get the best form every take, makes, in our opinion, the very best possible solution for portable room acoustics available today.

HI-TECH CONSTRUCTION WITH PATENTED PET FELT

The HALO is made from a patented PET felt which is one of the most lightweight and efficient, technical acoustic products available on the global market today, making it ideal for use in a reflection filter.

An additional side benefit is that the acoustic felt which makes up most of the sound absorption field, is made from 70% recycled PET plastic bottle material, so this highly technical product is also very environmentally friendly.

The lightweight material design, coupled with beautifully engineered ‘easy-mount’ hardware, means the HALO is quick and easy to set up, stable on mic stands, and sounds and looks fantastic.

Features:

  • Hi-tech construction with patented PET felt
  • Patented design, enhanced performance
  • Radically improved isolation
  • Filtering top and bottom (not just horizontally)
  • Much bigger surface area and depth of acoustic treatment
  • More linear absorption and diffusion
  • Incredibly lightweight proprietary ‘easy-mount’ hardware

So far, has been my go to for recording in substandard conditions!

Excellent practical, ergonomic design all around.

By Ramon R on April 4, 2021

This reflection filter is awesome to use with high line mics or if you are using a mic
with the gain on the preamp turned up. The large size of the filter really keeps most
refections from vocals feeding back into the mic in use. Definitely worth the price for
keeping vocals clean while recording.

Simple and elegant. A game changer

Awesome!

It's a awesome product great for my mini home studio I have

By Anthwan B on September 27, 2020

This is a great filter. Unfortunately there’s a lot of people out there who demonstrate it incorrectly. This filter is for a home studio or where there is a lot of noise. It cuts down on what exits the past the microphone and would otherwise reflect around the room ultimately entering the mic again from the other side. It should be used in conjunction with an audio blanket behind the vocalist. Used in this manner, it really does a great job. Excellent service from a great company. Fast shipping. Great prices!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
