      Comments about Rycote Portable Recorder Audio Kit for Zoom H4n:

      This kit does what you need it to. I have an H6 that I use as a more portable field recording option to record sound effects. Despite being better than the H4n, the H6 still hasn't completely eliminated handling noise, so I wanted a mount that could help with that. So far, this kit seems to do the trick.

      Cons: For the money, I would expect slightly higher build quality. It is mostly just plastic after all. I had to tighten the swivel with a screwdriver to get it to hold up the H6 without it flopping down.

      Pros: It's compact, lightweight, and lets you point your recorder in the direction you want to, without hearing yourself move or adjust grip. I also like that it has an adapter that lets you mount your recorder to a mic stand if you need to record but also want the recorder to be stationary.

      This is the best option I could find to reduce handling noise with my H6.

              This is a nice addition to an already great find, the H4n Handy Mobile 4-Track Recorder. We wouldn't recommending getting it without this add-on.

                  Comments about Rycote Portable Recorder Audio Kit for Zoom H4n:

                  I use the H4n primarily to record sound effects and atmospheres/ambiences for TV and Film. It's a great little stealth recorder. It's so small and light, it fits in my handbag and I can whip it out when I hear something I want to record. The only problem I had was the windshield that came with the recorder was not enough wind protection. In fact it was quite useless.So the addition of the Rycote shaggy has been brilliant. It's quiet in moderate wind. I haven't used it in high wind, and I suspect it may not be enough. Since I don't record sound effects in big wind situations it's not a problem.In stealth mode I tend not to use the Rycote cradle because I can hold the recorder quietly if I'm standing still. However the cradle is still small enough to be carried, so I often include it if I'm not carrying too much other gear. The only drawback with the cradle is that I can see that the little washers that help tighten it to the recorder can easily get lost. They tend to unscrew themselves and then lose themselves in your bag if you're not careful.It would have been good just to buy the shaggy without the cradle but I'm glad to have the cradle there in case I need to use it.

                    Comments about Rycote Portable Recorder Audio Kit for Zoom H4n:

                    This unit works fairly well. The suspension kills most of the noise from movement but if the pre's on your recorder are cranked you will still get some handling noise. In most cases the handling noise is substantially reduced. I would not try recording anything sensitive with out it. I use it for sound effect creation with an H4n. I would say its a bit on the pricey side for what it does, but considering that there's nothing else like it in this price range that may not really be the case. Build quality is ok. The wind shield only works in minimal wind situations. Even a slight gust will still give you noticable wind noise.
