A pop filter (also known as a pop shield or pop screen) is a noise reducing filter for microphones, typically used in a recording studio, or in a podcasting environment. It's main purpose is to reduce or eliminate popping sounds caused by the impact of fast-moving air on the microphone from plosives (such as the letters 'p' occurring in the word 'popcorn') during vocal tracking or recorded speech.
Here, SoundAssured's tech discusses the benefits of a pop filter for your mic, and a demonstration of installation onto several types of mic stands.
