While there's no replacing a real pop-filter in the studio, there are stage mics that come with a pop-filter built inside them.

The main strength of the Audio-Technica AE6100 is its built-in open-cell foam pop-filter which helps improve overall sound by reducing background noise and vocal plosives.

Its built-in open-cell foam pop-filter complements the AE6100's hypercardioid polar pattern and anti-shock engineering that results in improved overall clarity, quiet operation, and feedback resistance.

This works together with its hypercardioid polar pattern and dynamic capsule, making this a good mic on stage, of which many user reports attest to.

With its built-in pop-up filter and stage ready features, the Audio-Technica AE6100 is well worth your consideration.
