Do the job!
Gabriel5936, 18.06.2018
This is a regular popfilter/popkiller that does what it's supposed to do, meaning reducing/removing popping sound (fast air pressure on the mic created by plosives like "p" ) during recorded speech or singing. That's exactly why I bought it for.
Only the neck is moving, not the popfilter itself. So don't fear to see the screen balancing, it won't. The neck is long enough to place the popfilter from a reasonable distance to the mic or the attach. The neck is easily adjustable but doesn't move when placed. It's sturdy.
I use this popfilter in my non-smoking homestudio, so it never moves outside and only face vocals (and a bit of dust). Got no issue with it so far.

Good quality item
mynvidia, 25.01.2021
Bought this for use with an SM57. The plastic case holding the mesh seems to be of good quality and the goose neck stays in place relatively well. Sometimes it tends to not want to stay in place at a certain angel but you just need to find the optimal bending point in the goose neck and it will stay put. All in all, pretty satisfied with the purchase.

hassle-free popper stopper
ZittauSound, 05.04.2021
I use this filter both for singing (rapping) and voice over. It works pretty well, however at distance of <10cm to the mic one would need to add a low cut at 80Hz or so to remove the last remaining pops. I'd be happiest if the goose neck would be more flexible than it is.

I have to admit the handling is a little stiff, not very smooth, but works just fine, no pops or saliva gets the mic.

I expected a little better quality from K&M. The movable connection could be fixed much better.

Performs above expectations.
18.01.2017
I recently bought a ribbon mic for (amongst other things) vocal recordings - a very real concern was that the plosives of a singer 'in the heat of the moment', might damage the diaphragm. This dual-screen filter, placed about 4-6" from the microphone is perfect both for removing large bursts of sound, and for putting my mind at ease when using delicate microphones.

I really can't fault it, even blowing rather hard into it from about 3" away you can feel little more than a gentle breeze at the other side.

I've seen similar ones where the gooseneck has come away from the clamp, this looks and feels more sturdy - the clamp itself gets a very firm grip on mic stands of all different diameters, all parts seem to be very well designed, and are of decent quality materials.

K&M are noticably better than other products in a similar price bracket - I'd recommend them over the cheaper options any day.

The bargain caught me out by surprise
Pete-plays-guitar, 30.05.2017
There are lots of pop-killers out there in the market, some cheaper and some ridiculously more expensive. I think this hits the happy medium perfectly.

It is very well built with quite a stiff flexible arm, so no drooping during a session and a good strong clamp to attach it to the stand.

The loop itself is big enough for most studio condenser mics and the gauze itself is quite strong and thick without affecting the tone of the microphone in any way, but removing any popping quite effectively.

It has also survived the kiddy test where my youngest son had hi hands all over it and poking it with no damage, so it must be a fairly strong gauze.

So for the price and the build quality (which I have found good on all K&M products) this popkiller really is a bargain.

Highly Recommended

Good and compact airflow filter
PavelMB, 26.03.2021
Rather good popkiller at least for my small-size Lewitt LCT 440 PURE. Its neck is not too obedient for precise bending result, though still you can achieve desired position. Maybe it's a matter of habit to get used to proper adjustment. This accessory helps to make pops less frequent and not so obvious.

Fine for voice and brass
Patorian, 26.08.2020
This is a fine popkiller that does the trick for vocals and for recording brass instruments whilst taking the sharp edges of the tones (small home studio).

Versatile, sturdy popkiller
07.12.2016
I use this popkiller in conjunction with a Reflexion Filter Pro, which currently envelopes an AKG Perception series condenser mic.
As many home-studio owners, i simply don't have the space or the money for a decent vocal booth. Since i'm a singer/producer, it is crucial for me to solve the problem of recording vocals at home. This setup does the most in a non-soundproofed space. The filter deals with most of the reflected sounds, and i also hang up a duvet behind me on a cloth dryer. It's still not completely dead around the mic, but if the gain is set up correctly, than all you need, is a singer who can sing like a pro. And to tell you the truth, i'm not one. We amateurs tend to fidget and move a lot, when we 'get in the zone' while recording, and a popkiller just simply helps you to keep the distance, and the position. And of course, it helps eliminating some breath-noise, and sibilance.
Anyway, i don't have many experience with other popkillers, but i have other K&M products, and they are sturdy, and this is also true for this product. Recommended.

Does what it needs to do
nicouou, 21.04.2020
It does a great job of stopping the plosives.
And it's K&M, so it feels quite robust.

Tho the arm arm is a bit looser than prefered, so it's not always easy to get into the right position.

Too Weak
99 red balloons, 08.04.2020
The flexible arm is too weak. It always drops when outstretched which is really annoying. The filter is not that good either at stopping the 'P's.

Great for the price
Bateras, 05.01.2019
Solid and stable popkiller. It can be manipulated and it holds in the same place. It does not seem fragile or weak like others of the same price range. The mesh is not too big so it does not bother in case a singer needs to read from an iPad.

Broke off immediately
Snnt, 02.01.2019
Might've been a decent pop fitler but it broke off immediately after I unboxed it and tried to set it up. Don't think you can turn the filter! It feels like it's possible to turn it but it isn't. Very disappointed.

K&M pop filter
The Segno, 24.11.2020
Got this pop filter for the vocal recording setup of my home studio, and I have nothing negative to say about it. It does its job, is sturdy and easy to integrate into the setup via the flexible holder and screw-on mechanism.

Hard to position
Tomgh, 17.10.2018
I barely have experience with these things, so maybe it's normal. But I found difficulty positioning the thing. Really takes me a good amount of effort. Besides that, it's works well.
