This complete suspension and pop filter system will accomodate almost any large-diaphragm vocal microphone, and also allows mics to be swapped without the need to change the suspension and pop filter at the same time.

Included in the kit in the Universal Studio Mount (USM), which is a new type of non-elasticated microphone suspension that will accommodate any large-diaphragm microphone from 18 to 55mm in diameter due to a four-screw locking system. The non-elasticated suspension elements of the USM, the patented Rycote Lyres™, are virtually indestructible and will never sag or need rethreading like traditional elasticated mic mounts.

The other component is the Universal Pop Filter, whose ergonomic frame is designed for placement near the mouth and face of a vocal artist, and fits a specially manufactured acoustic foam mesh filter, which can be removed for cleaning or replacement; spare foams are available separately. The custom-manufactured mesh is capable of attenuating low-frequency vocal pops and thumps by up to 20 dB, and causes no audibly detectable high-frequency loss. As part of the InVision Studio Kit, the Universal Pop Filter fits snugly onto the outer ring of the USM to make a complete vocal mic suspension and pop filter solution; it will also clamp securely onto virtually any existing mic suspension.

The Rycote InVision Studio Kit is now available for $149.99. The Universal Pop Filter is also available as a stand-alone product ($49.95).
