Finally … an affordable sound booth.
Indie podcasters & voice over artists have always struggled with one thing above all: sound quality.
A microphone alone doesn’t lead to great sound. You also need to be in an isolated environment to achieve the best sound quality.
The truth is you can use an affordable microphone and achieve great results, but you need proper sound treatment surrounding you to create rich, echo-free sound.
Until now sound booths cost thousands of dollars and were out of reach to independent content creators like podcasters & voice over artists. Enter The Pod. The world’s first affordable semi-permanent pop-up sound booth.
Start your podcast with great sound.
Coming March 2019
Audio Comparison Tests
We decided to take some of the most popular recording gear and test the raw audio recorded outside, then inside The Pod. Check out the stunning results in the videos here:
Just pop-up and record.
Content may be king, but without good quality sound your listeners won’t stick around long enough to hear it. Use The Pod to help absorb the sound waves of your voice during recording for a rich, clean sound free of echo. For professional sounding entry-level audio quality we recommend pairing The Pod with a Shure SM-58 dynamic microphone and a Focusrite Scarlett USB Audio Interface.

What is your shipping policy?
We offer FREE shipping within North America (Canada & US)! International shipping is by quotation only at this time. Please note that there may be import taxes or customs fees which are out of our control when you order outside of Canada.
Where can I use The Pod?
Any quiet room that requires sound dampening. The Pod is meant to reduce echo from your voice during recording. The soundproofing used is not meant to block all sound surrounding The Pod. For best results, please use The Pod in a quiet area, free of excessive noise (traffic, voices, music, etc.)
Why is The Pod ‘semi-permanent’?
The Pod is a temporary pop-up structure, however it is solid and a bit heavy (we recommend two people set it up for ease of use). We think most people will want to set up their Pod in a chosen area of their house and leave it there as a designated podcast booth (i.e. the basement or a spare room). If you ever need to move, The Pod can easily fold down and be transported & setup in a new location.
If you are interested in a mobile, portable solution to dampen echo on the road, please sign up for our mailing list to be notified about our upcoming Pod mini, due for release in April 2019.

What equipment do you recommend for starting a podcast on a budget?
We love SM58 dynamic microphones paired with a Focusrite Scarlett USB Audio Interface, a pop filter and a desktop mic stand. You can also use a Zoom H4N Digital Recorder, but you’ll still need to use a program such as GarageBand or Audacity to edit your audio before publishing.
