SS 12: Best Pop Filters (Exciting, I Know!)
Pop filters do what their name suggests – they reduce or eliminate popping sounds. In natural speech, certain letters tend to cause your mouth and breath to produce fast-moving air. These plosives typically come from the letters P, T, and K. Try saying the word “podcast” or “pop filter” while holding your hand in front of your mouth – you’ll feel the air.
