SE Electronics Reflexion Filter X

I was look around at the SE Electronics Reflexion filters and came across the RF-X (sE Electronics Reflexion Filter X | DV247) and was wondering if anyone has used it and could provide some commentary?

How does it stack up against the RF-Pro which costs £180 more. Is it worth getting?

i think they both suck. i dont know this one but as soon as i see foam i cant imagine that anything good may be recorded in that.

the rf-pro also sucks. combfilter all the way...

do yourself a favor and get some basotect absorbers or get the pvb from real traps.

Overpriced, underperformers imo. A thick blanket hung over a boom micstand at 90 degrees is more effective, a hell of alot cheaper and probably easier to set up.

I made one for about $20 in parts using air conditioner foam and radiator grille metal. i can't say if it made a huge difference or not, but I leave it in place since I'm reasonably happy with the sounds I'm getting.

yeah, a wok and a bit of foam from an old pillow would be better than that thing

It's not that bad. Just don't bury the mic all the way in the middle of it. It all depends on whether your rear reflections are worse. Moving blanket gobos are a good solution for a lot of situations, also.

A lot of people seem to use them, they can't be that bad...

if you want to sound like you recorded in a cardboard box then go for it, althouhg an actual carboard box would be cheaper.

Strange that all of these negative comments on the RF Pro are being said, normally I only hear good things about it. Paul White (of Sound On Sound) who I met recently seemed to really like the RF Pro and I've seen loads of threads here praising it.

I'll definitely be avoiding the RF-X then, at least.

RF Pro is great... But not the foam based products..
The big $$ one works fantastic. Some of these guys on GearSlutz overall don't have a clue on what is good, try it your self.
