The Marantz Professional Sound Shield is a portable, compact device that shields a microphone from the detrimental effects of both indoor near-field acoustic reflections and excessive outdoor ambient noise.

Sound Shield is aptly named-it literally “shields” the recording microphone from those distracting acoustic artifacts, creating a cleaner, more focused, more intelligible recording. It has five absorptive walls (three stationary, two foldable) consisting of sculpted sound-absorptive surfaces, backed by high-density EVA foam for additional sound attenuation. These walls can be custom-shaped around the microphone to create a focused, precise recording in any environment.

For maximum versatility, it can be either mounted on a tabletop or stand-mounted using its built-in threaded insert.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can the Sound Shield help my recordings?

In a room that has not been acoustically treated, there can be an overwhelming amount of echoes and unwanted sound artifacts, such as early reflections that take place.

The sound waves coming from a singer’s voice, or any other source of audio, will bounce off all of the walls, flooring, and ceiling, before finally reaching the microphone. The sound of these early reflections can ruin even the best performances. Fortunately, the effects of early reflections, along with standing waves, be minimized by putting absorption and diffusion panels all around the room and ceiling. You may have seen pictures where there is foam lining the walls of professional studios; this room treatment can be expensive, and requires extensive knowledge of how sound waves interact with the room, and affect your recordings.

That’s where the Sound Shield comes in.

The Sound Shield has two key elements, the diffusion shell, and the foam absorption that lines it. The plastic shell that makes up the frame of the Sound Shield is covered in small holes, which help re direct unwanted audio, such as early reflections, from reaching the microphone. On the other side, you’ll see the foam absorption. This foam absorbs the source’s audio waves that are being recorded after they reach the microphone, to help avoid standing waves and more early reflections.
