Sorry about such a random question, but I was just curious. I keep hearing about pop filters (I just so happen to have a mic rig/sound card including condenser mics, though no pop filter) for vocals. So basically, I am just wondering what is the point of them? I realize that they are placed between the singer's mouth and the microphone, however, I fail to understand the point of this? Does it make a difference whether or not one uses them or not when recording vocals (does it affect the recording's quality/clarity, for example?)? Or is it just to keep spit off of the mic? Thanks a lot in advance!

I think it so that it doesn't record the "pop" of your voice. Certain words make you blow into the mic, so it "pops" I guess? Someone correct me if im wrong.

It softens plosives, P's and B's etc so they don't come through too loud, essential if you're using large diaphragm condensers for vocals.

aha, I do in fact have a large diaphragm (and come to think of it, I do remember hearing something about pop filters being used with them). Thanks a lot, sir, as well as everyone else.
