Scottsdale, AZ (May 16, 2012)—WindTech has introduced its new pop filter for high-end microphones, the PopGard PG-2000.
After more than two years in development, the PopGard PG-2000 offers protection against plosive sounds in side address microphones in studio and broadcast applications. In addition, the PopGard is hydrophobic, reportedly helping to prevent moisture from reaching the microphone element while remaining acoustically transparent.
Weighing less than one ounce, the PopGard is said to be easy to clean and attaches in seconds to most side address microphones from 46 to 68mm in diameter. Eschewing clamps or goosenecks for mounting, the PopGard attaches to the microphone body using lightweight elastic bands. WindTech says this mounting method allows the PopGard to move with the microphone without constant adjustment.
