Product Description

Everyone that uses Harlan Hogan's Porta Booth Pro is really happy with the way it makes them sound. It's lightweight, easy to set-up, and totally worth the investment. TED-Ed has sent them to educators all over the world!"

- Jordan Reeves, TED-ED Program Facilitator

Our third generation Porta-Booth PRO is powered by world-renowned Auralex Acoustic Studiofoam. We've added new features like our ingenious Booth Lifter but managed to REDUCE it's weight to just seven pounds!" - Harlan Hogan

Not long ago the vast majority of professional voice over sessions were recorded in full-fledged audio studios and auditions at casting directors and agent's offices. Today, the home studio revolution has rendered that modus operandi all but extinct. A professional sounding recording space for finished work AND auditions is a requisite tool of the voiceover trade. If money and space are no object building or buying a human sized sound booth is ideal, but impractical and unaffordable for most performers. And when you are on-the-road hauling along acoustic materials or "portable" booths that weigh 50 to several hundred pounds is a daunting proposition.

But getting great audio in acoustically untreated spaces got a lot easier with the introduction of our original Porta-Booth and the Porta-Booth Pro our larger, more robust audio booth that serves as a permanent and portable recording solution. The Pro accommodates larger and longer microphones, lengthy scripts and e-reading devices. Now in its second generation - with countless improvements - the seven pound Porta-Booth Pro is the best-selling portable recording booth worldwide. It's a professional quality sound studio that assembles in less than a minute - with the audio quality you'd expect from a human-sized sound booth - all at a fraction of the size and cost!

I was initially very hesitant to buy this because of the price tag but I eventually gave in since I'm a mobile college student and acoustically treating my multiple dorm rooms was out of the question. I'm giving it two stars because it does reduce room reflections, but at the cost of boomy boxy vocals and a good chunk of your wallet. It's not too noticeable at first but once you start adding compression and other audio effects, it becomes obvious. Because of this, I almost returned mine when I first recorded with it but after a few hours of experimentation and tinkering with the EQ's, I finally got a sound that was acceptable (and better then my recordings with the untreated room). There's no reason for this to cost $350 though and the only reason I bought it is because I'm moving around so much. If you have your own house or apartment, ignore all of these ecstatic reviews and get something else.

UPDATE: I ended up returning this item and buying an AE-F Reflection Filter instead. The AE-F is a third of the cost of the Porta Booth Pro and works 10x better. Seriously, the processed vocals sounded much better and with some additional treatments (I'm probably gonna use moving blankets with PVC pipe framing) it'll just get better. Because of this, I'm taking a star off the Porta Booth Pro. Don't waste your money on it.

This is my full ten minute review of the Porta-Booth Pro. I have been a Voice Actor and Voice Acting Instructor for over ten years. This is a wonderful piece of equipment I started using the very day it arrived on my doorstep. I recommend it highly to anyone who needs an affordable sound booth.

Though I bought the Harlan Hogan hood a while ago I only started using it recently. I'm so happy by the way it blocks out the sound of my PC tower, which is in the same room in which I record. It seems to eliminate a lot of other ambient noises also. Moreover, when I accidentally left the clip light on for a few days, and then called Harlan's office to inquire of the cost for purchasing a new one, he was kind enough to send me one for free. Way to go to keep your customers happy!

I've been waiting for this. I've used make shift sound iso to keep ambient noise out of tracks for years. It looks good and doesn't trash up your studio. I think this is a big improvement over the smaller unit.

The Porta-Booth Pro does a very good job of filtering out ambient sound, although it isn't able to eliminate everything (including a noisy-ish laptop off to one side). It's still a good idea to set it up with something behind you to dry the sound as well (I set it up with a bookshelf behind me). The soft "hood" also does a surprisingly good job of eliminating even more noise or room effects when needed.

What has been a pleasant surprise is its ability to concentrate and direct the sound to the mike, due to its "bandshell" shape. Those with particularly big voices may find the sound a little "thick". In any case, each voice artist or singer should experiment with the mike placement within the Porta-Booth Pro to get the best sound, and you may find that you need to place different mikes slightly differently, that is, a little further in or out. Another thing to keep in mind is that, since you should place the mike's diaphragm centrally, it's a little small to accommodate some of the longer mikes, for example a mike shaped like a Neumann U87.

Although it's a little larger than I expected, given that it was billed as being the size of carry-on luggage (it's a tad bigger), it doesn't weigh very much and it's quite flexible when it comes to setting up with diverse types of stands or on a table or even shelving. Overall, it's a great option for recording on the road and very good and affordable solution at home if you don't want to sink a lot of money into a sound booth or acoustic conditioning.

I first bought the Harland Hogan adjustable desk mic stand and felt it was way overpriced - should have cost $20 instead of $40. So, I was a little worried about having ordered this second product from the HH line. I had built my own mic dampening gadget out of hinged wood panels and mattress foam and that did a pretty good job. But after reviewing the online videos of this Porta-Booth Pro I decided to bite. It came yesterday and I am very pleased with the purchase. It is expensive, but I think it is worth the money. It does way better than my home-made gadget. I even tried it in a bathroom of all places and after adding a couple of pillows on the sides of my face and speaking into it, all reflected noise was gone! And the included drape actually does help cut back reflections. This is my first experience using a product with professional quality acoustic foam and YES, it's way better than mattress foam. I don't think anyone would be disappointed buying this to improve vocal recordings.

I’m actually reviewing several of the items I ordered from VoiceOverEssentials (via Amazon.com.) Specifically, they are the Porta-Booth Pro, the Porta-Stand and the VO: A1 microphone.

I was faced with a relatively small room that I wanted to turn into an A/V post-production studio. I also wanted to be able to record pro-level voice overs, mostly for training videos. After dealing with and resolving some infrastructure issues (wiring, cooling, lighting, etc.) I turned my focus on audio. I analyzed the acoustics of the room and then treated it with Auralex panels. I then wanted that extra punch to be able to record top-quality audio voice overs. I looked at various solutions, mostly considering isolated sound booths and such. However, there were many issues that would need to be considered including space, cooling, lighting , cost, etc. Then I came across the Porta-Booth Pro. I liked the look of it and already knew how well Auralex worked in the studio and the Porta-Booth Pro’s interior is lined with it. So, I decided to give it a try and I’m glad I did. The Porta-Stand has a nice small footprint and is ideal to hold not only the Porta-Booth Pro, but also a shelf to hold pre-amps, mixers, recorders, etc. The stand is black and non-obtrusive. The height of the shelves can be adjusted in just a couple of seconds. That is a real plus when recording different folks. It also comes with a few hooks that you can use to hang headphones. But back to the Porta-Booth Pro. It is very cleverly designed and portable (coming with a nice carrying case.) Obviously this was well thought out and likely evolved from previous versions. There are Velcro-type straps in each corner that helps stabilize it and keep it square. There is a zipper in the back, through which you can run cabling.
