Aston Halo Reflection Filter 

The Aston HALO reflection filter is the first of a series of reflection filter products planned by Aston Microphones. In a market awash with differing versions of an ageing design concept, the Aston HALO is a huge leap forward in reflection filter technology.

There are several key areas on which we focussed on improving currently available technology, most notably for Isolation, absorption, mounting hardware and the general performance as a studio tool for achieving portable room control.

HALO Key Features

  • Hi Tech construction with patented PET felt
  • Patented design, enhanced performance
  • Radically improved Isolation
  • Filtering top and bottom (not just horizontally)
  • Much bigger surface area and depth of acoustic treatment
  • More linear absorption and diffusion
  • Incredibly Lightweight Proprietary ‘easy-mount’ hardware
 
 
 

Patented design, enhanced performance

HALO’s unique design is also patented… it’s much bigger, wraps around top and bottom to a maximum rear depth of almost 100mm to improve room isolation and absorption without dominating the room sound. Its textured and wave-formed surface also helps diffuse direct sound.

Market research revealed that many people have a hard time with getting a good performance when using other reflection filters because they are not very ‘creative-friendly’ environments. The HALO’s form and colour scheme is designed to create a more ‘organic-feeling’ space for the performer to work with.

The combination of radically improved performance in almost every area of currently available technology, while paying special attention to both the green credentials of our manufacturing (as with our mic packaging which is 100% recyclable and 84% recycled material), and to the creative element that the artist requires in their performance environment to get the best form every take, makes, in our opinion, the very best possible solution for portable room acoustics available today.

Hi Tech construction with patented PET felt

The HALO is made from a patented PET felt which is one of the most lightweight and efficient, technical acoustic products available on the global market today, making it ideal for use in a reflection filter.

An additional side benefit is that the acoustic felt which makes up most of the sound absorption field, is made from 70% recycled PET plastic bottle material, so this highly technical product is also very environmentally friendly.

The lightweight material design, coupled with beautifully engineered ‘easy-mount’ hardware, means the HALO is quick and easy to set up, stable on mic stands, and sounds and looks fantastic.

Musos & Aston Mics

Musos Corner has a great relationship with Aston Microphones, after a visit from owner James Young to give us a rundown of their awesome, robust and unique products, we put them up against a horde of industry favourites and we were astounded at their quality. From the ground braking Origin, with it’s rugged and industrial design ethics, the awe-inspiring Spirit which pulls big punches against opponents many times it’s price, to the intriguing Starlight with a friggin laser beam attached to its head and the Halo, from the designer of the Reflexion Filter, a product which created an entire product category, to improve on what everyone else was merely copying, this product range may be small but each product is absolutely killer and worthy of your attention!

World Class

Musos Corner even brought some Aston microphones with them when we were privileged enough to visit Abbey Road Studios for the day to do some tracking. It had some amazing company with vintage U47’s side by side.

If this is the case we will call or email you and let you know if your order cannot be fulfilled, and what your options are as soon as possible. We have multiple warehouses around the country so the "in stock" and "out of stock" is an indication of if the item is able to be shipped from one of them, our store, or one of our distributors.

We do also ask if you plan on picking up an item, please contact us so we make sure it is in our store ready for you.

How do I know if my item ships Free?
Please put in your address into the freight calculator and if there is free freight there will be no charge for delivery.

Express Post
We can Express Post/Courier your items if necessary but additional charges may apply. Orders generally leave at 2:00pm daily so if you need an item ASAP, make sure it is ordered by 1pm (please call 1300 687 672) to ensure there is stock of the item and to get an estimated time of arrival. Express post is to capital / major cities only (for next day service). This service is for items under 5KG only!

How can I track my order?
Check your email and you will have been sent a tracking number, input the number into either Fastway CouriersStartrack or Australia Post's Track & Trace engine. If you have any problems, please call us and we will call the couriers on your behalf.

Do you take international orders?
Sorry, we do not take international orders, we only sell and ship around Mainland Australia & Tasmania. For remote & Island locations please contact us.

How much is shipping?
To work out a shipping cost, please go through the cart and our system will work out a freight price to your area.
If you think there may be an error, or want to clarify the price, you are welcome to contact us and we will work out the best shipping price for you.
There may be some exceptions for heavy or large items (over 25kg), remote locations or some regional areas. We will contact you if this problem arises prior to shipping the goods.

Do you offer freight insurance?
We certainly do, and highly recommend it as Australia is a big country. Insurance / Shipping protection is available and is only 1.5% of the value of the goods.

Can I pick my goods up in store?    
Of course! Unlike some stores, we do not charge for you to pick up in store. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so we can make sure your goods are ready. Orders that are left for over 1 week and not picked up will be returned to stock, unless other arrangements have been made. Valid ID will be required for picking up goods that have been paid for online or over the phone.

What if I am not home for the delivery?
IF you are not home, the driver will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot/post office or arrange a re-delivery. 
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.

What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier. 

Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.

Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.

I've been emailed a tracking number, how do I track it?
The number should look like Fastway FA0000001 or Startrack YTP0000 or Aus Post 111111, Simply go to the website of the company it was sent with (Fastway,Startrack ExpressAustralia Post) and trace it there.
