Future Music - - REVIEWS | SE REFLEXION FILTERS -­elec­tron­

This is the prod­uct that kicked it all off, and it’s stood the test of time rea­son­ably well. Con­struc­tion is ex­cel­lent, and through panel bolts from the outer to in­ner sur­face not only add rigid­ity but also en­sure the in­ner panel sec­tions are de­cently damp­ened. The fil­ter is mounted via a sin­gle thread at the bot­tom and this is at­tached to a ro­bust clamp. The clamp, like all three fil­ters on test, also has an in­te­grated ad­justable mic mount­ing arm that sits within the fil­ter. The fil­ter and bracket com­bi­na­tion are rea­son­ably weighty so you’ll need a de­cent mic stand, and some cau­tion is re­quired in use to en­sure the whole thing doesn’t top­ple over.

The Re­flex­ion Fil­ter Pro fea­tures a multi-layer de­sign us­ing wool, ten­sioned alu­minium foil and polyester fi­bre­board. This not only fil­ters sound but also en­sures the fil­tered sound and early reflections aren’t un­duly coloured. In prac­tice it cur­tails some sound into the rear of the mic and over­all can add some de­gree of fo­cus, par­tic­u­larly in the low to mid fre­quen­cies. Even so, in use its compact size can feel quite claus­tro­pho­bic.
