Used Hosiery: Pop Filters [a.k.a Pop Screens]

You can use hosiery to protect your microphones: pop filters [a.k.a pop screens]. The trick seems to be that we have to buy a hoop for cross stitching.

I hate buying a hoop just to reuse pantyhose. Maybe we can cut the top off of a jar, and cut a hole in the corresponding lid, so that we use the rim and the lid with a hole. Do any of you know how to make a hoop for free?

Thank you for reading!


  1. Sounds like a good idea :) You can even make money from your used pantyhose selling the pop filters on eBay :) You can shape a hoop from an old wire, just remove (or not) insulation :)

      Sorry. It seems that your comment went to a spam filter. I don't know why, but I brought it out. :^)

      Thanks for your contribution.

      My biggest concern about wires is that they might not be stiff enough. Keep us updated, if you try anything.
