If you think about the way a (cardioid) mic works, it becomes very obvious that a broadband absorber (eg. duvet) placed in front of the mic but behind the performer (and ideally, extending around the sides too) will have a significantly greater effect in reducing unwanted room reflections than a 'filter' placed behind the mic.

Both are useful, but I'd rig the duvet before worrying about a filter.
