Halo

Der Aston HALO Reflektionsfilter ist der erste einer ganzen Reihe von Reflektionsfilter-Produkten, die Aston Microphones plant. In einem Markt, der in verschiedenen Varianten eines alternden Konzepts regelrecht ertrinkt, stellt der Aston HALO ein riesigen Sprung nach vorne in Sachen Reflektionsfilter-/Absorber-Technologie dar.

Mit dem Ziel, die heute üblichen Technologien zu verbessern, haben wir uns auf mehrere wesentliche Bereiche konzentriert – insbesondere Isolation, Absorption, Montage-Hardware und den Anspruch, eine hochgradig mobile/portable Lösung für Studiosound zu schaffen.

“Halo is a designer piece, that deserves a place in an art gallery.”

“Compared to many competitors HALO is a joy to use”

Bonedo

“Highly recommended.”

“…the Halo sets a new bar for personal vocal booths: the large, lightweight shell-shaped design and the felt material combine to make it very effective.”

“The subjective results were perfectly clean; I could discern no audible coloration” “…the extra isolation this produces is definitely worth it.”

“The Halo is more than just another reflection filter, and manages to look good while also improving your signal quality.”

“If you regularly track vocals in small untreated rooms, this type of device should be high on your wishlist.”

“The Halo has tech specs that out-perform the alternatives, but it is much simpler to set up and use.”

“Halo is a designer piece that deserves a place in an art gallery.”

“Great performance, the Aston Halo really delivers!”

“HALO not only stands out from the competition visually, but, above all, by its construction.”

“…amazingly light-weight”

“I am convinced that this is the best reflection filter in its class on the market right now.”

“Aston Halo is suitable for both home studio and more professional recording environments and feels almost ridiculously affordable considering what you get.”

“The filter not only protects from reflections laterally, but also from the floor and ceiling. The ribbed inside also controls the diffusion of sound”

Jon Rinneby

“Not only is it the best-sounding microphone reflection filter I’ve ever used, it also sets a new bar for simplicity and esthetics.”

“THIS is how a refection filter should be made.”

Matthew Loel T Hepworth

“The most impressive quality of the Halo is its sonic neutrality”

“Halo is both surprising and pleasing.”

“In a bright room the noticeable loss of sibilant reflections is clear, making mix adjustments a lot easier.”

“Isolation-wise, the Halo lives up to the hype. You simply don’t notice room reflections as much — the focus is more on the source. Recordings made with the Halo just seemed closer — like they jump out of the speakers a little more.”

“The market has been all but dominated by sE Electronics’ Reflexion Filter, but Aston promises superior performance in nearly every regard with its purple newcomer.”

John Preshan

“The sonic difference in the dry test, just speaking into the filter, was tremendous.”

“There is an impressive difference between recordings with and without the Halo.”

“…Recordings with the Halo are significantly dryer, more direct, clearer and more intimate.”

Patentiertes Design, verbesserte Leistung

Das einzigartige Design des HALO ist auch patentiert … Es ist deutlich größer und deckt auch den Bereich unter und über der Mikrofonebene ab. Die maximale Tiefe von beinahe 100 mm verbessert die Raumisolierung und Absorption, ohne den Raumklang zu dominieren. Die strukturierte und wellenförmige Oberfläche sorgt für eine bessere Streuung des Direktschalls.

Im Rahmen von entsprechenden Untersuchungen stellte sich heraus, dass viele Künstlern bei der Verwendung anderer Reflektionsfilter keine optimale Performance gelingt, weil diese keine allzu „kreativitätsfreundliche“ Wirkung haben. Form und Farbgebung des HALO hingegen sind so konzipiert, dass ein „organischerer“ Raum entsteht, in dem ein Künstler gerne arbeitet.

HALO stellt bei nahezu allen Aspekten eine radikale Verbesserung gegenüber marktgängigen Technologien dar. Hinzu kommen das besondere Augenmerk auf die umweltfreundliche Herstellung (wie zum Beispiel auch bei unseren Mikrofonverpackungen, die zu 100% recycelbar sind und zu 84% aus recyceltem Material bestehen) sowie das kreative Element, das es dem Künstler leichter macht, bei jedem Take sein Bestes zu geben. Das Endprodukt all dieser Bemühungen ist aus unserer Sicht die bestmögliche heute verfügbare Lösung für portable Raumakustik.
HALO steht ab dem 1. März in ausgewählten britischen und europäischen Fachgeschäften zum Test bereit. Die Auslieferung an Kunden erfolgt ab April 2016. Die eingeschränkte Garantie deckt den kostenlosen Austausch über einen Zeitrahmen von 2 Jahren ab. Kunden können diesen Zeitrahmen auf 3 Jahre erweitern, indem sie sich unter www.astonmics.com als Mitglieder des Aston Owners Club registrieren lassen.

High-Tech-Produkt aus patentiertem PET-Filz

HALO besteht aus einem patentierten PET-Filz. Er gehört zu den leichtesten und effizientesten Materialien, die heute im Bereich akustischer Technologie erhältlich sind – die perfekte Grundlage für einen Reflektionsfilter machen.

Ein weiterer positiver Nebeneffekt ist, dass dieser akustische Filz, der einen Großteil des schallabsorbierenden Bereichs bildet, zu 70% aus recyceltem PET-Kunststoffflaschenmaterial besteht.

Damit ist dieses High-Tech-Produkt gleichzeitig auch sehr umweltfreundlich. Die besonders leichtgewichtige Ausführung sowie die mit Lieber zum Detail entwickelte „Easy mount“-Hardware erlauben eine besonders schnelle und einfache Montage des HALO.

Er sitzt stabil auf jedem Mikrofonständer – und Klang wie auch Erscheinungsbild sind einfach fantastisch.
