What Do You Get?

When you unpackage this microphone screen, you get the actual screen which is made out of a thick sheet of CNC acoustic foam, and you also get the sturdy metal stand to slot it onto. The screen is incredibly light weight, which means it won't topple over any mic stands or weigh down boom arm.

Set up is super easy, simply attach the metal stand to your boom arm or microphone stand before putting your microphone on, and then slot the microphone screen onto the stand. You can put the screen on before you attach the stand to the boom/microphone stand, but it makes things a lot more fiddly!

But What Does It Do?

A portable sound booth is a tool to block out ambient noises to make your vocals clearer. The thick CNC cut polyurethane acoustic foam offers outstanding results for absorbing surrounding noises and making recordings cleaner. Portable sound booths are not a permanent solution if you’re looking to block unwanted noises. They do a really good job at keeping most ambient and far away noises at bay, but they only go so far, as you can see in our video tests.

What Are Longer Term Solutions?

The long term solution is to optimise your recording location. Try the following:

  • Foam Tiles: Place just a few foam tiles around your studio to absorb bounce backs.
  • Dense Curtains: Windows are the worst at reflecting noises back, so hang up dense curtains or blankets.
  • Carpets: Hard wooden floors can sometimes be a problem, so lay down carpet or place carpet tiles down.
  • Small Spaces: Large spaces are echo nightmares for recording equipment, so choose a smaller room for your studio.

Having things like foam tiles on the walls, fabric furniture, and curtains up can help absorb any ambient sounds and increase the quality of your recordings.
