Auray WRW-H1 Custom Windbuster for Zoom H1
The Auray WRW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.
This WRW-H1 Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit the Zoom H1 digital recorder and is designed to be used either on its own or over a foam windscreen. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.
When used on the Zoom H1, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 20dB to 30dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction.
In addition to dual layered wind protection, the WRW-H1 helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your recorder's microphone. The WRW-H1 Custom Windbuster for the Zoom H1 digital recorder offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.
Polsen HPC-A30 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones
The HPC-A30 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen are designed for monitoring audio in studio, field, mobile, and DJ applications. They feature 50mm drivers that provide a frequency response of 18Hz to 22kHz for accurate reproduction of your audio.
The ear cups on the HPC-A30 have an around-ear (circumaural), closed-back design, allowing for the increased isolation often desired while tracking or monitoring playback. Additionally, the ear cups can be pivoted for single-ear monitoring. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. A padded and adjustable headband provides comfort during extended use. The 32 ohm impedance allows for ample volume when used with mobile devices. The headphones have a single-sided, 9.8-foot cable that terminates in a 3.5mm stereo connector. A 1/4" adapter is included for additional compatibility.

A microSD adapter is supplied, allowing you to use the card in a full-size SDHC/SDXC slot. The card features built-in Error Correction Code (ECC) to automatically detect and fix transfer errors.

Kopul ACH4-25MON Line-to-Mic Attenuator Cable
The Kopul ACH4-25MON Line-to-Mic Attenuator Cable is designed to connect your digital recorder (e.g. Zoom H4n, Zoom H6, etc.) output to the mic level input of your DSLR camera with 25dB of attenuation to step down the hot line level audio to microphone level. It features a 1/8" headphone tap that allows you to monitor the signal to your camera and is shielded to reduce RF noise and provide interference-free operation.
The cable provides 25dB of attenuation to assure the output from your digital recorder is at an appropriate level for your camera's mic input. This backup recording can act as a fail-safe for your audio, as well as a reference track for easy syncing in post-production. The cable is 1-foot in length and features straight 1/8" connectors.
The ACH4-25MON is compatible with DSLR cameras that feature a 1/8" unbalanced mic level input including:
EOS Rebel T2i(550D)/T3i(600D)/T4i(650D)/T5i(700D)/SL1(100D)
