The Pauly Superscreen Pop Filter is a premium handmade filter that's meant for professional studio work. The high-price tag is justified by being handcrafted in Germany, its high build quality and its proprietary gooseneck - which is flexible yet stable - able to stay in place for a very long time unless moved.

The entire assembly of the pop filter is also designed to produce as little noise as possible, making this a great pop filter to work with in professional studios. The fabric membrane used is especially designed to stop plosives without disrupting the high frequencies.

Features:

  • High Build Quality
  • Fabric membrane
  • Handmade in Germany
  • Non-reflective gray finish
  • Fabric Membrane

Pros

With its high price tag, many users were skeptical at first, but most turned into fans of the Pauly Superscreen pop filter after using it. Many reported being impressed by the build quality, quiet operation and more importantly, the virtually zero sound degradation.

Cons

"High quality but a bit too pricey" is a fair summary of how many describe the Pauly Superscreen. There was one who reported getting low frequency rumbling from the pop filter when it is mounted to the mic stand, so for even quieter recording, he mounted the clamp to a separate stand.

Overall

The Pauly Superscreen requires quite an investment for a pop filter, and it is obviously not for the faint of heart, but those who invested in it got more than what they bargained for. It is highly recommended for professional studios.

Unfortunately it's no longer available in stores new, so if you can't find one available second-hand then you might like to look at the alternatives we recommend in our guide to The Best Mic Pop Filters.
