Small or very small recording rooms are usually used for recording speech and vocals and are highly sound-absorbing. However, due to too much height absorption, such rooms often sound unnaturally dull (“woollen blanket sound”). On the other hand, fewer absorbers are not a solution either, as otherwise too much space is absorbed by the recordings at mid and low frequencies. HR absorbers solve this problem.
For many years we have been using our HR absorbers in speech areas, vocal booths etc. This version of the A100 absorber features a sound-reflecting perforated plate behind the fabric covering, reflecting high-frequency sound. The designation HR stands for “High Reflection”. The result is a balanced, transparent and neutral sound image.
