      A eye-opening professional motivational tool.
      Listen up, whether your a singer, rapper or voice over artist like yours truly... You NEED to add this to your recording arsonal immediately. Alot of novice artist make the mistake of putting a price tag on the value of professional product that is to be competitive in the market-place. Don't! The coincidence that this particular piece of equipment is priced sugnificantly lower than the competitor's is a God-send. In my nearly three years of recording, I can whole-heartedly and emphatically say that using this reflection filter will inspire you to create; as well as alter your mindset with regard to your business practices. There is no substitute for quality. I repeat, NONE!
      Priceless equipment that by the grace of God, does come with a price tag.

      The product seems like it would have worked if it had arrived in one piece. Instead, as someone else I believe experienced, it arrived with the center piece of foam already come unglued. I elected not to exchange it for a new one since this kind of thing doesn't leave me with a lot of faith in the quality or durability of this product.

      Comments about Auralex MudGuard Microphone Isolator:

      The quality of this is good, and so were the intentions in making this. The problem is with the "other part of the equation".

      What the real issue is are the mike stands themselves. Just not enough threaded end on the stands. You really need to get these tight, in order to hold the weight of the mike and device.

      And between the bracket and the large black washer(which you will need)there is a lot of bulk. Plus you have the issue of weight, and balancing it.
      Especially with the heavier studio mikes.

      Some mike stands have a round threaded washer....you need to either tighten it, or remove it, before putting on the "star" washer.....otherwise not enough "grab" on the threads by that chrome nut they supply.

      It's not the fault of the manufacturer of this, again, it's the mike stand.

      The functionality(if you can get it set up)----it doesn't replace a soundproof booth.......but it certainly cuts down outside noise, as well as echo.

      It works great.....but there is that caveat of not being able to get it to stay on the mike stand without spending too much time playing with the bracket. Should be easier....

          I've owned two of these. The first one arrived fine and worked great. The second arrived with the center foam popped off the backing. This is a GREAT product that helps your recording clarity ALOT so if this happened to you as well don't be put off. Simply go to the store and buy a spray can of "3M SUPER 77" Spray a generous amount on the backing, put the foam in place, and stack some books on top of the foam. In 10 minutes It'll be good as new. I think the original glue issue is probably from the SUPER cold winter we've had this year,

                This is a well-made sound shield from a trusted name (Auralex) that effectively isolates the microphone from surrounding noises and allows a much clearer, focused recording. MF had it at a great price with free shipping and it got here in 2 days. Can't beat it!

                            Great for home recording! A must have unless you have a dead room for vocals. Using this was like night and day compared to previous recordings. I was skeptical to purchase this because there weren't a lot of reviews, but I am so glad I got it! Produced great results with vocals as well as violin. Highly recommend!

                                I was still skeptical about this product after reading all the great reviews so I decided to actually give it a try because I Really had nothing much to lose. From the day this product shipped I've been using it non stop. The sound quality increased and you can really hear the difference this product is phenominal! Make the right choice like i did and improve your music sound too!
