What is immediately noticeable is that the suspension of the reflection filter is very solid and is very easy to adjust. By means of a button on the side, the height of the microphone can be adjusted and by means of a button on the top, the distance of the reflection screen in relation to the microphone can be adjusted. In addition, there is a hole at the back of the adjustment mechanism where you can let the XLR cable run through so that it does not get in the way. The sound screen features a beautiful design with ridges which ensures that unwanted reflections are muted as much as possible during your recording and it still looks beautiful.
