Introduction: Microphone Portable Insonorisation

Create a portable microphone insorisation in less than a minute!

What you need:

  • a mic with a holder (this one is the Blue Snowball, I think today is 70$ on Apple/Amazon)
  • an old pillow or a big sponge or anything that reduce the sound when you bring it near your ear
  • a cardboard box of a medium size (depending on the size of the mic + holder)

That's all you need. Now let's make the obvious ;)

Step 1: Create All the Stuff!

Take your pillow/sponge/whatever and put it into the cardboard box. Mine fits perfectly because I choose a box based on the size of my sponge.

Put the mic+holder into the box and close the sound-blocker material around the mic as possible. Plug the mic cable and you're ready to go!

I know it's not a big project but I needed a thing like that for a long time and I've tried different solutions, some of them were very tricky. This one is the most compact and ready-to-go I've built.

I hope this should help someone =)

This is awesome! I'd love to hear audio samples of using it vs not using it.

Ok added a very quick audio example, plus my animals plus my wife making noises.
Plus the material you choose to use make THE difference. This one cuts the high frequencies, other can block other frequencies so... good luck =)
