I did A – B testing with and without a nerf ball.   It reduced the highs.  The RE 20 sounded more crisp without it, so I always took it off when recording my spots.  Others wanted it on.    They do help reduce wind noise and pops.

Not a bad idea using nerf balls. Did it color the response on the mic?

On a budget?  For years I have used the Nerf Balls that are 3 to 4 inches in diameter, carved out with an Exacto knife.  They work very good in wind, outdoors.   Many years ago, I got laughed at when recording an outdoor press conference in a strong wind.  Later that day, I was getting calls from the area TV stations wanting to know if I'd send them my audio so they could sync it up with their video.  I did share.  My wife told me I should have charged them for it.  She's TOUGH

How about the Shure rings with the thin stretchy fabric that are connected to a gooseneck and clamp?  I have had very good success with them on Shure SM81 mics and the cheaper BG4.1 mics.

Hello Everyone,

I'm using two AKG 414's in a talk studio and I've got a problem with plosives. I've got your typical foam windscreens on them...the kind that fit an RE20...but that's not doing the job.

Does anyone have a particular pop filter that works best for killing the pops on side-address condensers?

The talent is fairly close...within 6 or 8 inches of the mic...but not using it at the same proximity as would be used with an RE20 or SM7.

 

Thanks,
