Pop filters are commonly available in two types of materials: aluminum mesh and nylon. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. Some argue that the metallic mesh pop filter has a greater impact on filtering the music, while a nylon filter is less noticeable. However, this is subjective and depends on the audience’s perspective. Others claim that there is no noticeable difference between the two types, while some suggest that both types may slightly dull the sound to some extent. It ultimately depends on which type has a greater influence. We tend to agree with this viewpoint but also acknowledge that nothing sounds worse on a recording than a loud audible microphone pop sound.

It is true that with a pop filter, you may sometimes experience a slight reduction in the top range, and the sound may be slightly muted if you have a keen ear. However, this is generally considered a positive aspect in most cases, as the benefits of using a pop filter far outweigh any minor drawbacks. The aluminum style, such as the MXL P003, is easier to clean and more durable over time but is typically more expensive to purchase. On the other hand, the nylon version may deteriorate slightly faster, although this may depend on the amount of use and how well it is handled.

The main point of differentiation among pop filter devices lies in the connection clamp and flexible arm, which deserves more attention. A reliable product like the Pro Screen XL is quite affordable, has a great clamp, and features a highly flexible arm. While this may not seem like a major concern for a beginner user, having a pop filter that remains securely in place and allows for easy and precise adjustments (even in small increments) is a valuable investment, especially over a long period of time. I would personally recommend spending a few extra dollars to avoid any potential frustration.

Occasionally, you may come across a double-screen pop filter, but this is less common than the regular pop filter. A double-screen filter is used in addition to the first pop filter and is only necessary when absolutely required.

In general, a skilled singer or voice talent with appropriate technique may not require this type of filtering. However, if you encounter issues with plosive disruptions on your primary track despite using a single pop filter, using two pop filters instead of investing in a double pop filter can be a solution.
