    Which is better a double layer stocking filter or metal filter.

    What do you use in your studio, metal or stocking. It's for a side address mic and I was wondering if a 6 inch diameter is better than 4

    I'm looking at these. One that says it's a 'louvred' metal, one that just says it's metal but may or may not be louvred, and a double stocking type.

    louvred

    mesh

    stocking

    Two questions, is it a 4 or 6 inch, and is it just plain mesh with holes or is there some trickiness to the mesh? I note that they say their screen is 'polorised', I'm not sure what that means in this context.

    mine has a diameter of 4 3/4". if i blow on it from the front, the air is dissipated. from the back, the air goes through. i reckon that's what's meant by polarization.

    That's rather interesting. Are you able to describe any obvious structure to the holes that makes it a semi one way design. Like are they scooped out a bit on one side?
