The Primacoustic VoxGuard is a high performance ambient noise attenuator designed to mount on a microphone stand and surround a recording microphone to help control the sound from entering the microphone by minimizing the reflections in the room. Unlike other similar offerings that employ complex steel parts that are both heavy and cumbersome, the VoxGuard is light weight and extremely easy to use. It starts with a high-impact ABS outer surround shell that snugs onto a mic stand using the mic clip to hold it in place. The acoustic 'magic is performed with a high-density open cell acoustic foam liner. This effectively absorbs the voice range while keeping room ambiance out. According to Primacoustic President Peter Janis: "We have had this concept in mind for many years but to be honest, have been so busy with other products that it has been sitting in the background waiting. Well we finally got around to developing it and are very pleased with the results. Not only is the VoxGuard way easier to use than the competition, but because of the light weight design, it ends up being so much more flexible. And at $99, everyone can afford to put one into their recording room." The light weight design makes positioning the VoxGuard easy without the usual fear of the stand falling over. This makes the VoxGuard effective when used with round base stands, tripods and even with large studio booms. The VoxGuard retails at $150 with an estimated street price at $99 each.
