    Microphone Isolation Shield

    Ambient and reflected sound can be a problem when recording acoustic and vocal tracks, especially in a "live" studio environment. Block unwanted sounds from entering your microphone by using this Microphone Isolation Shield from Monoprice!

    This acoustic shield features an acoustic foam front and a vented metal back plate, which allows the microphone to "breathe" and prevents reflections within the arc of the shield. It uses a dual clamp mounting bracket, which attaches to booms or stands up to 1 1/4" in diameter. The two outer panels can be folded inward for storage or for creating a tighter acoustic isolation chamber.

    The shield features a standard 3/8" microphone threaded mount and includes a 3/8" to 5/8" thread adapter. The shield can be used in a normal upright orientation or can be inverted, so that the microphone hangs down inside the chamber. All assembly and mounting hardware is included.

    When folded for storage the shield measures about 17.3" x 15.4" x 5.5". When extended for use it measures about 23.5" x 15.4" x 11.0".

    Great prduct

    Pros: built awesome and heavy weight

    Cons: a little to heavy for mic stands.

    This product is built great and is very heavy. The weight makes the mic stand bend but does not fall over. I like how heavy it is for the construct but would like it lighter for the mic stands. Would totally recommend this product to and home or professional studio.

    Missing parts

    Pros: Nice and sturdy, great construction, always the price

    Cons: Shipped without parts, customer solution solutions inconvenient and timely, too heavy for regular mic stand mounting.

    Build quality seems solid, unfortunately item was shipped without microphone mount attachment. Talked with a representative and unfortunately they cannot replace/send individual parts, in this case the tube and steel track sheet, which I would've thought would be an easy and cheaper solution for them. They did offer to replace the entire unit, but I need to use the isolation shield soon and the process time would have taken too long (7-14 business days), plus it would be a big hassle to try and repackage and send this thing back..as others have said, it is really heavy duty. I'll just have to use/place an extra mic stand, which is ok, just a lot less convenient/stream lined.

    I was on the fence between 2 and 3 stars, but other than the missing pieces, this is a very solid feeling product and very inexpensive for what it does.

    Also, again, this is a fairly heavy isolation shield, and as another user suggested, I would mount this to something more like a speaker stand than a mic stand for stability.

    Well Worth The Price

    Pros: No cheap materials used
    covers a lot of space for isolation
    looks clean and sharp
    does its job well
    even comes with the tools if you don't have them

    Cons: Some people may say it's a bit too heavy, non issue for me.

    This isolation shield is made well. For the price I was actually expecting lesser quality, but this thing blows away the isolation shield that is for sale at my local music store. In quality and price alone (by about $40).

    Works well, but have a sturdy mic stand!

    Pros: Reasonable cost, works well.

    Cons: Mounting hardware could be slightly heavier-duty.

    Seems to do it's job, I find it works best for me when I put it on it's own (straight) stand, it just seems more stable that way. Definitely tames reflections as it should.

    Works, but I modded it for better balance

    Pros: Really works. Cleans up the sound.

    Cons: Heavy & unbalanced.

    This isolation shield really does what it's supposed to. When I got it, I did a little test where I recorded a short section of a song with guitar, banjo, upright bass and a vocal, and then recorded it again using the shield. Noticeable improvement all around (this was a home recording in a basically untreated room). Then I took it into my professional studio and used it for an acoustic guitar/vocal recording to try to get better separation on the two mics - it worked well for that as well.

    Unfortunately, the shield is very heavy, as noted in other reviews. On its own that's not a huge problem, but when you put it on a stand, you'll notice that because the bracket attaches to the back of the shield, the whole thing wants to tip forward. If you use the extender arm for your microphone, the problem gets worse - everything's unbalanced in the same direction. So I decided to modify mine - I removed the bracket, used a razor blade to cut out a little bit of the foam in the middle of the shield (exactly opposite where the bracket attaches in the back), and re-attached the bracket inside the shield. Now, when I attach it to the stand, it balances much better. I've decided to forego the use of the microphone arm and just use the shield on its own dedicated mic stand (the microphone is on a separate stand). Much easier to move around, place where you want it, etc. I use a straight (no boom) tripod mic stand for the shield and a boom stand for the mic. Hope this helps you!
