Re: More or less "popfilter" on different Neumanns

Hello,

the BCM 104 broadcast microphone has an internal pop-filter, that can be sufficient with trained speakers.
The KMS stage mics have a very efficient one, but would not be your first choice for voice-over, I would say.

In any case, pop protection increases with the larger distances between mouth <> pop shield, and pop shield <> membrane. So, the safest solution is still the classical external pop-filter, with 5+ cm distances. And, personally I would avoid reflective constructions, like metal grids.

I wrote some articles, with some measurements, which can be found here:
