Sound insulation, damping - wireless microphone

Postby cydneys » Thu Sep 23, 2010 2:46 am

What kind of materials should I use to make an insulation case/pouch for a wireless microphone to be put into, which would block/reduce most of the sound,
hance - microphone not picking up any voices until it is out of the case.

Any ideas?

I was thinking of Boom Mat Sound Deadeners used for cars, but i am not sure if that would do the trick for higher (human voice) frequencies...

My client requested a bag/pouch,
I am surprised not to get any suggestions, I guess it's an odd request...

An acoustic mic bag of nullity? Doesn't strike me as "odd"... more like "nutty", because it makes no sense to me... for whatever that's worth. I gotta ask myself, what's the bag for when you could simply turn the mic off? Its like asking for a special bag to put your electric knife in when you are not using it - and want to leave the knife running.

If a foot switch doesn't work for the client, you can also get mics with a switch built in so the on/off button is in hand.

it's for my clients old karaoke wireless mic, with no switch, which got sentimental value to him,
+ bunch of retired people who cant see much, but are able to take a mic in and out of the bag....

anyway,
Scott R. Foster -electric knife ? your analogy is flawless, or should I say "nutty" ?

Found this forum on google, looked thought a few posts,
noticed some pretty sharp people here, figured I asked....

try something with some heft to it... maybe sheepskin with the wooly side in? might work good enough for the purpose intended

Is your client not willing to add a switch to the cable for the mic? Even if the mic has so much sentimental value that the owner doesn't want to risk modifying it, it should be possible to add a switch to the cable (if the cable is integral to the mic, make a small cable with a switch and plug the mic into that and then plug the switched cable into the Karaoke machine.) You could even make a big switch that vision-impaired people could see or feel more easily...

D'OH!! Just noticed the word "wireless" in the message title. Please ignore silly previous message.

Thanx,
