The Hook Studios Octo-842S overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for voice-over and narration but versatile enough for other studio applications, the Octo-842S from The Hook Studios features more sonic transparency than foam windscreens. This innovative filter installs by simply sliding it directly over the microphone body, allowing easy adjustment of the mic-capsule distance from 1.25 to 1.5". The precision-mounted rubber o-rings keep the filter on target and on axis. Weighing less than one ounce, the frame is fabricated from lightweight aluminum with a durable powder-coat finish and features dual Acoustex screens.

Use with small-diameter mics such as the Neumann KM 84, Sennheiser MK-416, and Shure KSM141

    The Hook Studios Octo-842S reviews

    Octo-842S Front-Address Pop Filter for Small-Diameter Microphones is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shotgun Mic Addition I bought this pop filter after seeing a review from George Whittam from Edge Studios. Previously I used a pop filter from Voice Over Essentials but found that it wouldn't stay in position and was always obstructing my view of the copy I was trying to read. My first use for this pop filter on my Sennheiser MKH416 was a real pleasure. I took off the wind screen and added The Hook which helped both my ability for mic placement and removed some of the defect being added by the wind screen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the 416 I bought this to use for voice over with my Sennheiser MKH-416. For a long time, I've been very loyal to the Popless 3.5 dual mesh screen because it works well and stays nicely out of the way. I'm now sold on the Hook. After much testing, it works just as well, but is even more compact, which means I can pay even less attention to the mic and more attention to the performance. And the price is right too. It's simple, as it should be. One note on use: placement matters a lot. I found, for me and the way my mic is placed, it performs significantly better in a vertical position. It also works best for me placed as far away from the mic as possible. Small adjustments make a pretty significant difference, so it's worth the time to place it with care.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pop-filter Popped for this filter after seeing the review by George Whittam. Been using a small wind screen for my Sennheiser 416 and this is a big improvement. Stays right where it is placed and does not add any coloration to the recording. Would recomment it for anyone doing voiceover work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! This little gem fits my 416 perfectly and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Best pop filter I've ever used and absolutely worth the money. As a bonus, the small size doesn't block my vision when I'm reading voice over copy on my screen. My old school pop filter was bulky and would get in my line of sight. This baby rocks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazingly Simple and Effective Design I've been using this little pop filter for several weeks now on my Sennheiser 416, replacing my old gooseneck filter. Not only is the problem of casting a shadow over the copy gone, but this device allows me to work the mic in numerous up close configurations for maximum effect. You'll not be disappointed, this one is a winner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovative and effectively transparent pop screen I love that this unit rides with the mic, and doesn't need a clumsy and limp gooseneck to hold it in place. It doesn't color the sound of the mic in any noticeable way. It also protects the mic very effectively from moisture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! Fantastic! It is not a miracle worker, but has reduced pop sounds and certain mouth noises. For the price, can't say enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Great piece of gear and works as advertised. Love the small profile so you can still see your scripts while performing.
