Definition

Caused through a blast of air from a plosive sound such as a 'b' or a 'p' type sound.

This sudden rush of air close to the diaphragm of a microphone is low-frequency energy, causing the typical low-frequency thumping sound. This can be overcome by either moving a little further from the microphone or using a pop shield.
