Recently we have become aware of PS-101 copycat pop screens being distributed in the United States. They are being made in China and they are dead ringers for Royer Labs’ PS-101, which is manufactured for Royer Labs by Stedman Corporation. Even though these pop screens look like the real McCoy, they differ greatly in performance. The patented expanded metal screen used for the genuine pop screen works very effectively, while the Chinese made copy does not! The Chinese version lacks the angled louvers that are at the heart of the pop screen and therefore acts more like a cloth pop filter than a pop screen. These versions do not effectively prevent P-popping and therefore we do not recommend their use. Please make sure you purchase a genuine Royer Labs or Stedman Pop Screen. The counterfeit versions are cheap, but they don’t work well and are no bargain at any price.
