Product Highlights
  • Portable Acoustic Absorber
  • Reduces Room Ambience
  • Includes Mounting Hardware

Traditionally, acoustical treatments have been expensive propositions, requiring extensive testing and construction on various surfaces. With the advent of project and small satellite studios, innovative techniques have surfaced to deal with the economics and practicality of treating those acoustic situations.

The Reflexion Filter PRO from sE-Electronics is one such unique product. A curved baffle made of six different layers (plus an air barrier); the filter is positioned behind any microphone by means of a variable-position, stand clamp assembly. This reduces the amount of acoustic energy hitting any untreated walls, in addition to which, less of the original source is reflected back to the microphone as unwanted room ambience.

The unit is portable, allowing the user to bring their own acoustical treatment to any environment. The included mounting setup attaches to any microphone stand, and provides a sufficient degree of flexibility for adjusting both the position of the microphone and the filter. Recommendations for use include vocals, horns and reeds, guitar, voice-over, percussion and live location microphones.

Construction Layers

Punched aluminum for diffusing sound waves
Sound-absorptive wool
Aluminum foil for breaking up lower frequency wave-forms
An air gap acting as an acoustic barrier
Additional sound-absorptive wool
Another layer of punched aluminum
Four formed panels of state-of-the-art specialized acoustic absorptive material, separated from the main unit via a small air gap
Dimensions (WxDxH) 14-1/2 x 8 x 12" (368 x 203 x 305mm)
Weight 8 lbs (3.6 kg)

      I use the reflection filter to record and produce voice over podcasts shows and voiceover demo reels for actors.

      The product is amazing because it deadens the sound and takes away echoes. Giving it a quality as if you were in a full size sound isolation booth. Especially for such a great price! It's also a space saver unlike sound isolation booths it doesn't take much space.

      The filter itself does some great things sonically for an untreated, but quiet room. The design however leaves a lot to be desired. Even on a sturdy tripod stand, a slight bump can send your mic tumbling to the ground. I recommend removing the mic assembly from the reflexion filter, leaving only the shield, and booming your mic over the top of the shield on a seperate stand.

      Good product, takes a bit of fiddling as it leans forwards a bit, pair with a c-stand as it's a bit of the heavy side.

          Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO - Acoustic Absorber:

          Contrary to the photographs here, the clamp by which this assembly is attached to the mike stand has rubber pads on both sides, not just one. While this affords better cushioning, it also makes the entire thing lean slightly rather than stand up straight. Functionally irrelevant, perhaps, but it looks a bit seedy.

          Contrary to what we were told prior to purchase, this device does NOT mount to a desk stand, nor is it suitable for a desk stand. Even a full-sized floor stand has only minimal stability with this filter at the top. The lighter and flimsier the mike stand, the greater the probability of everything falling over, and you can count on the microphone being the first thing to hit the floor.

          Given this filter's price, one would think that a proper instruction manual would be reasonable, but there is only a small printed note telling the purchaser that the manual is downloadable from the website. Don't bother; it is cursory, badly illustrated, and of very little value. One final and very trivial note: the carton in which the manufacturer (in China) packages this product is quite surprisingly hard to open.

          Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO - Acoustic Absorber:

          I run a small voiceover business out of my home office. The room is not itself acoustically treated. I have in the past used a variety of home-brew solutions to control echo, with mixed success. The Se Reflexion Filter Pro is a serious solution. It probably reduces room reflections by 80 %, which is really good by itself. Because I'm a tweak, I also added a pair of Auralex ProMAX acoustic panels *behind* me, to reduce echoes from the direction of the mic's pickup pattern. That probably gets me to 95%, which, for the kind of voiceover work I do, is great. No one would ever know I'm not in a "real studio". I spent almost four times as much for my microphone as for this reflection filter, but without the filter, I just wasted my money for the mic, because it picks up every little defect. With the filter, I have a serious voiceover solution.

            My insulated recording booth is about 9x11 but, I still heard some of the room on playback. Not anymore! The sE Reflexion Filter PRO eliminated the sound of the room in my recordings. I purchased another to track duets at the same time. Nice.

              I got this product to use in my home studio as additional filter to tighten the sound of vocals. For its size it's not too heavy, which is good ( from tr reviews I thought I was going to need an expensive counterbalance boom) but my stand holds up particularly well even mounting the filter& mic upside down. Moving the mic from back to front on the mount helps dial in more room sound if desired, and overall build quality feels solid and like they say, it doesn't color the mic.

                  Comments about sE Electronics Reflexion Filter PRO - Acoustic Absorber:

                  I've only used this item a few times so far but it seems to do the job of improving audio quality of vocal recordings. Note that this device is not going to magically make a noisy room quiet, nor is it designed to do so. But it does keep reflections, ambience and some amount of room noise away from the microphone, allowing you to obtain a better recording than you would have without it. It attaches to a standard, vertical microphone stand via a screw-down clamp, which isn't the sturdiest I've seen, but seems to do the job. The included mounting bracket provides the location to mount your studio microphone and even offers some ability to slide the mic forward and back to obtain the best positioning. You'll need a very sturdy microphone stand to properly use this device as it's quite substantial in weight, especially since it will be supporting whatever microphone you use as well. If your projects require you to record voiceovers or vocal tracks out in the field or in otherwise less-desireable locations, this device will definitely help.

                  I do voice over but I have to be mobile. The Reflexion really does cut down on the background noise plus it's made out of some quality stuff--quite handsome. AND VERY heavy. I am going to get a better stand; I'm a bit uneasy about it tipping over--not that it would hurt the equipment, don't you know, but it might smash my dog.

                    I honestly have to use this more and in combination with more mics to get a better sense, but my initial impression was that the reflection issues I have in my space (i.e. bedroom) were immediately diminished when I started using the Reflexion Filter. It's not a cure-all, and it still helps to deaden the room by other means, but it is definitely helping my vocals sound crisper.

                        I usually track vocals, guitar and bass in my small studio.

                        The room does not have optimal acoustical treatment and due to space limitations I do not have a vocal booth. Usually, I improvise by using a make-shift vocal booth but the results are undesired.

                        I searched for a solution and learnt about the Se Reflection Filter.

                        This Reflection Filter has drastically improved the clarity of my recordings.
                        Now, vocals sound like they have been recorded in an acoustically treated booth.

                        I recommend this product to anyone without a proper vocal booth who wants to achieve clean sounding recordings.

                            I do a lot of "on-site" audio recording for shows and commercials, and in that capacity this is invaluable. It makes it possible to record voice-overs and such in environents where you would never get any useful audio at all (so you can record you voice- overs on location, instead of always hauling talent back to the studio). Don't get me wrong, this it no replacement for a properly set up studio, but when that's not available and you have to get audio NOW it makes the difference.
                            Good things include heavy contruction, lots of adjustment, and a high quality absorbsion shield (not just plastic backed foam like other brands).
                            Bad things include heavy construction (buy a heavy stand) and a mic mounting bar that is far too short, but you can get around that.

                            Overall, I like the effect on sound recorded with this device, however I really don't care for how it attaches to a mic stand. The system wants to attach to a single mic stand - both the screen and the mic itself, which makes for a very heavy and unstable situation. You need to use a VERY heavy duty stand to be able to support the whole thing, and a sandbag wouldn't hurt either. I really wish they included some type of adapter to just hold the screen alone on a separate stand behind the main stand.

                            It certainly works, just make sure to get a good mic stand, a sand bag, and be careful not to knock the whole thing over!

                              I record in a pretty large room and the difference it makes is noticeable. the price and portability are real plus considering it would have cost me over a grand to treat a room in my basement.

                                Despite its small size, the Reflexion Filter Portable Acoustic Absorber works great at isolating any sound reflection; it gives a very 'dead' sound when recording vocals - no room reflections can be heard in the recordings.

                                  The filter itself does some great things sonically for an untreated, but quiet room. The design however leaves a lot to be desired. Even on a sturdy tripod stand, a slight bump can send your mic tumbling to the ground. I recommend removing the mic assembly from the reflexion filter, leaving only the shield, and booming your mic over the top of the shield on a seperate stand.

                                      While a bit of skill in choosing and placing the mike is required, this device can turn any quiet place into a studio. I use ribbons for voice by personal preference. This device effectively contains the rear lobe and provides a close up, warm sound without having to "eat the mike." 4 or 5 inches works great.

                                      I am also sure it will be useful when location recording in poor acoustic environments to limit or eliminate audience noises and ambience. Haven't tried that yet.

                                      You will need a large footed stand or shot bags to ensure stability, especially if using a small boom stand as the unit is heavy and well made.

                                        Having owned a commercial studio in a real building for ten years and then 'taking it smaller', this solved a whole lot of problems recording in a less than ideal environment (i.e. the project studio).

                                        I am now getting back the bang for the bucks I spent on those real expensive name brand multi-pattern tube vocal mics, after struggling with not having a proper room or booth with good acoustic treatments.

                                        This got rid of the pile of gobos and other stuff I tried to correct my problems with, let's me set the mic to a nice sounding pattern, and delivers a nice focused, quiet, reflection free performance to the recorder.

                                        In retrospect, I could have used one of these in the big room as well - makes the singer comfortable and gives a nice focused, uncluttered area to work in. YOU NEED IT!
