    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".

    Hello, I would like to know what density has the foam that is in this product?. Thanks!
    New User U on Nov 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Foam density for this Iso Shield is 33.
    I am attempting to completely deaden the fan noise emanating from my computer during recording and playback. My thought is to encase the computer tower (located in a home studio) in this microphone isolation stand. Will this product work for this purpose?
    Dan M on Dec 31, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It might help, but I don't think you're going to get total isolation. First, you would need at least two to encircle it, and second, it is only about 13 inches high, so the top will still be open, plus the bottom is off the ground, so that also would allow sound to escape. You'll probably have better luck with quiet fans and reducing the heat in your computer, so that fans don't need to work as hard.
    Is there a way to mount this to a wall?
    A shopper on Aug 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have two of these in my studio and really love them. They're designed to be mounted on a substantial floor stand, like a speaker stand, or free-standing on a table top. There is one way I can think of that would allow you to mount the isolation shield to a wall, and that would be with the use of wall-mounting brackets designed for pole-mounted speakers. I don't believe Monoprice carries these, but they are available.
    Everyone says it is heavy, but how much does this weight exactly?
    A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Probably 12lbs.i use a weight on the mic stand and it works fine.
    Has anyone tried using this in front of a 2x12 guitar cab to mic the cab in addition to toning down the volume on stage?

    How do you stand it?
    This is basic physics, folks. Trying to hold this thing up with ANY mic stand short of a hundred-dollar Atlas is guaranteed to end in disaster. It's too heavy and the clamp doesn't really go down to mic stand diameter. On the other hand, try it on a tripod SPEAKER stand and it's a whole new ball game. It becomes obvious instantly that the clamp is made for a 1-1/2" - ish shaft. It tightens right up and the whole thing is rock-solid. The marketing genius who decided to claim it would work on a mic stand should be forced to sit on the floor next to one mounted that way without a helmet while it's in use. I should add though, that anyone who can unpack one of these, lift it up and think for one second that it will be safe and stable on their $12 mic stand deserves what they get when the whole thing falls over onto?…let's just hope it's not TOO expensive.



    Standing it on a table with the feet works, though it would seem that the reflection from the surface would be a problem - a boundary PZM or such might work well though. I haven't tried it personally.



    Tempted as I was to rate this poorly because of the mic stand claim, I'm giving it a 10 because of the build quality and because it really does work PERFECTLY on a speaker stand. Use it that way and you'll agree.





    PROS: Effective, well built I got it on sale for fifty bucks which makes it even better!

    CONS: Weighs a ton

    Use on your desk or get a really strong mic stand
    First off. I do really love this product. I gave it a five, but it could have been a four, because the overall weight is significant and might be too heavy for mounting on a lesser quality stand. With that said, if you have the hardware to handle the weight, get this. The all metal construction is what makes it heavy, but it's also what makes it bullet-proof. The four feet make it nearly perfect for a podcaster who works from a desk. I use it in my home studio, but I have some really heavy duty stands and booms that can bear the weight. It does a great job isolating the mic from ambient room effects.. The side panels are adjustable so you can make the sound as intimate as you need. There is a bit of trouble tightening the side panels so that they don't tend to move, but that is a minor complaint. Also, since the desk feet are part of the tightening system for the side panels, they can't be removed to reduce weight.

    PROS: Good isolation
    Side panels are adjustable
    Folds for easier storage
    Solidly built

    CONS: Pretty heavy
    Might overwhelm a light duty mic stand

    Perfect for my at-home non-music studio.
    For the past 20 years I have recorded my radio shows, audiobooks and voice-overs from my studio in a 115 year old farmhouse. The angles and materials in the upper floor make for good sound-absorption, but this unit gives me a bit more of an "edge" and is easier to use that placing large acoustic panels around me. ( I may use BOTH for even better isolation!)



    The unit also looks nice, which is important when using promotional photos or when the press comes to visit.



    Great price, fast shipping!

    PROS: Well crafted quality finish. And, it does work as a shield, of course!

    CONS: I'd like a step-by-step assembly sheet.

    Very Impressed
    This vocal isolation shield was my first purchase from Monoprice, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The all-metal construction (save for the foam) seems very sturdy and will no doubt last for years. The only downside is that it's so heavy, I had to buy a heavier mic stand to hold it up! The attachment clamps on the shield will hold up to a 1 and 3/8" tube, so you could even use it with a 1 3/8" speaker stand if you so choose. Of course, it doesn't just look greatit also does a great job of taming room reflections, especially in untreated or poorly-treated acoustic spaces.

    PROS: Very heavy duty, solid construction, and includes feet for desktop use. It also uses two attachment clamps that attach to a vertical tube of a stand, instead of just attaching to the threaded top of a mic stand. The price is also unbeatable.

    CONS: It's so heavy, I had to buy a better stand!

    Solid Build Quality, Great Results
    I purchased this for students in my Film class to use for voiceovers/ADR. It works extremely well. It works well on a table top or can be easily mounted to a light stand/tripod and is very portable. Several students have won awards for work they've created using this product, the results are fantastic.



    I've seen more of these pop up from other manufacturers lately, but they're not as well made, cost more, and are usually smaller in size. The Monoprice version is the best option by far.

    PROS: Price, Build Quality

    CONS: None

    4/5
    Haven't really used it yet to determine the sonic quality [i.e. whether it blocks enough outside noise. The 8 rating is because it broke the boom arm! You can of course, order a new arm. I have the stand weighted down at the base with two 10 lb weights, which keeps it standing. Not ready to take a shot with my ribbon microphone yet! It is, however staying in place. But, having said that, it's not a flimsy device, which is more than cool. You will want to eventually get a really heavy duty stand. Now, the other thing is that the pads initially did not keep the thing in place. It kept slipping down, and it also kept pushing the stand down. My solution was to glue the pads back onto the unit, and put the end piece from the broken boom arm onto the top of the stand. it's not as tall anymore, so to sort out the means of making it close to my height for vocals, I had to place a book underneath. This will have to work until I can swing a really industrial heavy weight stand. BUT, having said that, that will more than likely be the case of any device like this. Monoprice is great at bringing great products at affordable prices for the rest of us until we create budgets for the name brands. But the thing is, their devices work just as well, and in some cases better proving that value and performance doesn't require refinancing the house just so that you can afford the tools you require to realize your vision.

    PROS: REALLY SOLID CONSTRUCTION.



    CONS: Heavy. Broke the boom arm off of a stainless steel mic stand, so those cheap ones from the music stores may bite the dust if you try to use one of them. Pads on this thing kept coming off. Basically bought some Gorilla Glue and glued them back on. It is VERY heavy, so it kept sliding down. It also kept pushing the STAND down. Still, imho, you WANT heavy construction, as it will no doubt last much longer.

    Solid Well Built
    Waited a good couple of months for this Mic isolation shield to get restocked and after checking out the flimsy all plastic shield at Guitar Center for $99.00 I just knew this was the way to go. It's all metal so forget about mounting it on a mic stand, even with sandbags and look into a 10ft heavy duty photographic light stand instead. For about the same amount of money as a decent mic stand the light stand I mounted it on is perfect, the setup up is solid as a rock. The only Con was the thread on one of the bottom legs was stripped, you'd tighten it and it would just pop loose so keep that in mind, but there was just enough of the bolt available to attach a nut to it and in my case it's fine. You can, for around $275.00 get a better shield but for the construction and the price you can't beat this one in my opinion. Another great deal from Monoprice.

    PROS: All metal, solid construction, easy to assemble

    CONS: Threaded hole on one of the legs was stripped, won't tighten securely.

    Surprised and pleased
    I must say, I was blown away by the build quality of this isolation shield. I want to say "at this price", but that would be misleading, as there is nothing "low price" about it - It's well-made, effective, and looks great in my studio. As others have said, the description is misleading when it mentions mounting it to a mic stand - it's too heavy for that, and it's obvious that the brackets were designed to mount to a pole of a larger diameter, like a speaker stand - and that's exactly what I used, which was perfect.. Bottom line: my musician friends can't believe what I paid for this isolation mount, and have asked me to send them a link!

    PROS: Very well made and nice looking

    CONS: None, really, except that the product description copy needs to be edited.

    Fantastic but HEAVY isolation shield
    This is a great unit to isolate background noise from a microphone setup. It is very sturdy and works like a charm. However, it's also very heavy, and was too heavy for both of the stands I had, one with a boom, and one without. I'm not sure monoprice even sells something that can support this. I'm currently using it on a desk with the mic dropping in from above vertically on a boom.

    PROS: Isolates noise

    Wrap around design

    Folds up

    Doesn't cause echo

    CONS: Very heavy

    Awkward to mount

    Good quality, heavy
    Great product, sturdy build, but really heavy. You need a mic stand with a wide base if you're using this on a stand and not a desk.

    PROS: Does a good job of blocking out ambient sounds. I have a loud heater that kicks in randomly, and using the shield has made my recordings sound fine even when it's making noise.

    CONS: Heavy. It's too heavy for most of my light stands and threatens to topple them over. I had to resort to a sandbag on my mic stand base.
