    in this video are the duvet comforters in the background have a good sound isolation for vocals and what is that clamp thing that attaches to his shockmount?

    They're not really duvets... Not sure what they are.

    The clamp? Probably a mic stand ;)
    No, it's a pop filter. Reduces breath noise too.

    Looks like packing blankets to me, the kind you get when you rent a u-haul. I know a few people who use them for a little bit of moveable sounds treatment since they are denser than a down or polyester duvet (felt inside?). Drape them over some mic stands to create an impromptu isolation booth. Just don't expect them to actually isolate anything - they will tame some of the reflections and that's about it, and sometimes that's all you need.

    sorry for the shitty song haha but that is another view of it. That gold thing with the black clamp at the end of the microphone

    Its part of the mic. That mic is a Sony 800G. A very very good mic at that.

    That "clamp thing" is the Pellitier cooling device that keeps the Sony's tube
    operating temperature stable. Like DD said, this is a VERY nice mic. And for the price it costs, it should include a Carrier HVAC to keep it cool!
