Product Highlights
  • Isolates Sound & Reduces External Noise
  • Portable Sound Isolation Solution

The MudGuard by Auralex is a cost-effective sound isolation solution that reduces external noise bleed and controls unwanted acoustic reflections when recording vocals in untreated rooms - a major problem in most home studios. Tracking clean vocals free from noise bleed and bad reflections are easier to work with and always sit better in the mix. The Auralex Studiofoam helps accomplish this by reducing excessive room ambience and off-axis sound. Constructed of lightweight Studiofoam and shipped with the included mounting kit, the MudGuard works with most any mic stand or clip and makes for an ideal portable sound isolation solution.

        Comments about Auralex MudGuard Microphone Isolation Shield:

        I use the product to gate out unwanted noise out of my recording. Before I had the mudguard I used to get a lot of unwanted noise in the vocal but now with the mudguard it helps a lot, of course it doesn't gate all the noise out but for the price point it does a good job. All you really need is a quiet room.

          This is a pretty good solution for cutting down on reflections without muddying the sound. It seems to muffle a little more of the outside noise, too. Great for tight spaces.

            I am a voice pro. This is an excellent investment
            for anyone wanting to rid their space of outside noise. It isolates perfectly.
            Buy it from BHP. Amazing service and the fastest standard
            delivery I have ever experienced. My go to place for all mygear needs.

            Comments about Auralex MudGuard Microphone Isolation Shield:

            This isolation panel is some kind of amazing. It's a pretty basic one but still gets the job done! It takes a little getting used to for putting it together, but once you figure it out & utalize it for it's full potential it's easy & really helps! I have recorded on a professional microphones with a TV being on only maybe a foot or two away & it still blocked out the sound from it. It's light, durable & comes with some interchangable parts. The only disadvantage I think is that it doesn't really fold up & is difficult to package it up & transport it without worrying it will be damaged. But aside from that it's a great isolation panel & helps to keep unneeded noise away.

                  I like another purchaser had to reglue the middle baffles because they came unglued, minor fix. This is pretty cool, has a mounting bracket for you condenser or ribbon mics, so I mounted my studio mic to it and now I can move it to in front of my amp or I can afix it to my boom stand for vocals, works really well.

                    Comments about Auralex MudGuard Microphone Isolation Shield:

                    I bought this product to block out a little bit of unwanted noise surrounding the microphone for recording vocals. It works very well for what it is made to do. This is a great product for those on a budget, yet want somewhat decent gear for a studio setup. The only down side was that when I received the product the glue holding the foam had come unstuck a little bit, but there is nothing superglue couldn't fix.
                    The beauty about this product though is that it attaches easily enough to the Microphone stand and if you wish, you could always take the foam off and put some better quality foam on there, instead of upgrading to a different mudguard.
