Aesthetically Pleasing & Highly Functional
JChong 20.11.2020
Needed to swap out my old K&M pop filter which had the meshing tearing. I'd figured I could change out the mesh with some stocking from the dollar store but hey, it's a good opportunity to get a sturdier and nicer looking one.

Looked around for alternatives and I've always been impressed with Aston's pop filters; they look slick and are high functional. Took the dive and ordered this along with my Brauner microphone in the same order. When it came I was surprised how sturdy the gooseneck is. The only drawback was that it's really really really STIFF. A good thing though. Also I'm not a huge fan of the clamp, I would have preferred the ones with a screw which you can tighten onto the microphone stand but the clamp seems tough enough. Only time will tell if the spring loosens up or gives way. Also if the rubber bushings give way it's not going to hold anymore unless you replace it.

Tried it out, excellent pop rejection. It's almost near zero before and after and I don't notice much of a difference in the top end. Some pop filters sort of deaden the top end with too thick of a mesh, other's have very poor plosive rejection (*cough* like the K&M *cough*) but this impressed me.

If any I would have considered the shockmount with the pop filter but the Brauner mics come with their own really nice proprietary shockmount so that might be a purchase few years down the road.

Seems well made

Sound is unique, sometimes though if your set-up isn't very good you'll notice a metallic sound to your voice. Keep in mind, this happens with basically every bad set-up though, so not necessarily the shield.

I have moved it a lot and unfortunately it's pretty loose now, as every other kinda cheap pop filter. I place it in front of the mic and as soon as I let go, it tilts further down.

There's a slight chance that due to its design I can screw it in harder or something, but it seems to be the snake is just broken.

I'd still recommend as I think it's mostly my fault and the constant moving from one studio to the other that broke it somewhat.

Great Quality and Looks really good

This thing looks really really great and the quality is very nice as you would expect for the price! Unfortunately for me compared to a fabric pop shield or others that I use this seems to have a slight affect on some tones of my voice that I don't like.. it is pretty subtle though so maybe just a personal issue!

For singers who wear glasses
Shaw 31.07.2021
I bought this pop filter mostly for its curved design, as I found my glasses frequently click on other pop filters' frames, which created a nasty noise in the recording. The surface feels blade-y and sharp, and is easy to clean (for hygiene concerns). My only grip, though, is its short and inflexible gooseneck. The positioning options are quite limited when the mic is dropped from the top.
