Overview
  • 1Description

The Zoom H6 Portable Recorder Field Kit from B&H provides you with everything you need to make high-quality field recordings for ENG, video, film and similar applications. The kit includes the Zoom H6 Handy recorder, 16GB SDHC memory card, SMH-1000 monitor headphones, custom windbuster and black recorder strap.

The Zoom H6 Handy is a portable handheld recorder and USB audio interface that features an interchangeable microphone system. The recorder ships with both XY and mid-side microphone modules, foam windscreen, 2GB SD card, four AA batteries, USB cable, Cubase LE and a hard carrying case.

The 16GB SDHC is a Secure Digital High Capacity memory card. It offers an SD Class 10 rating, along with an Ultra High Speed Class 1 rating, giving it the power to achieve read speeds up to 30MB/s and lower write speeds of at least 10MB/s and likely greater.

The SMH-1000 Closed-Back Professional Monitor Headphones feature a classic closed-back, over-the-ear, collapsible design. With features like interchangeable cables, a refined frequency response, wire guides, superior comfort, and durable materials, the SMH-1000 is ideal for field and studio applications.

The Custom Windbuster is a solution for reducing wind noise and vocal plosives while recording with your H6 Handy recorder's X/Y Mic. It features high-quality simulated fur on the outside, and a lint-free acoustic cloth lining on the inside for additional noise reduction. The design lowers wind velocity around the microphone and provides up to 30 to 40 dB of wind noise reduction.

The black recorder strap is a 1.0" wide and is made from high-tech memory foam that contours to the shape of the neck and shoulders creating a custom fit. It also uses antimicrobial material to draw away moisture, for use in all weather conditions.

  • Zoom H6 Handy Recorder with Interchangeable Microphone System

    The H6 Handy from Zoom is a portable handheld recorder and USB audio interface that features an interchangeable microphone system. The recorder ships with both XY and mid-side microphone modules, foam windscreen, 2GB SD card, four AA batteries, USB cable, Cubase LE and a hard carrying case. Optional module attachments can be purchased for expanded functionality.

    The H6 Handy allows for versatile recording techniques, giving you several options right out of the box. The included XYH-6 XY microphone module is made up of two matched unidirectional condenser microphones and is intended for capturing accurate, phase-correct stereo audio. The module allows you to adjust the angle of the two mics to either 90 degrees, or for a wider stereo image, 120 degrees.

    For situations that call for audio that allows for width control over your stereo image after it has been recorded, the XY module can be switched out for the MSH-6 mid-side stereo microphone module. Contrary to the appearance of the capsule, the mid-side module actually contains two elements positioned on top of one another: a unidirectional mic which faces forward (mid), and a bi-directional mic set perpendicular to it (side). In addition to providing you the ability to adjust the width of your stereo audio after it has been recorded, MS recording also provides true mono compatibility, a factor that comes into play in situations such as television production.

    In addition, the H6 is equipped with four XLR/TRS combo inputs for connecting external mic/line sources such as microphones or mixers. All four inputs and each of the mic modules are equipped with their own preamps with dedicated gain knobs that are easily accessible whether you have the unit mounted to your camera, or strapped over your shoulder. Also, each of the four combo inputs has its own -20dB pad.

    The recorder allows you to record up to six channels at once and stores them to SDXC memory cards up to 128GB in size. It also features a backup-record option that tracks a duplicate of the left and right channels with -12db input gain. This means that if you find that you have tracked your main audio too loud and that distortion has occurred in your audio, you will have a backup stereo mix with 12 db more headroom as a fail-safe. The unit also doubles as a 6-in/2-out USB audio interface and it can be used with your computer running the included Cubase LE or other DAW software.

  • Senal SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones

    The SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal feature a classic closed-back, over-the-ear, collapsible design. With features like interchangeable cables, a refined frequency response, wire guides, superior comfort, and durable materials, the SMH-1000 is ideal for studio and field applications.

    Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 ohm impedance, the SMH-1000 headphones are designed to be loud enough when attached to low powered devices such as mobile phones and mp3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion. The over-ear, closed-back design is intended to help block unwanted outside noise, which is useful in professional field recording and studio monitoring scenarios where isolation is critical.

    The headphones are designed with an EQ curve that's been tailored for a slightly enhanced low end that allows field engineers to detect wind noise more effectively, and for studio engineers to monitor bass and sub bass frequencies. The high frequency response has been extended to accurately reproduce spatial detail. There is also a pronounced but smooth midrange that reduces ear fatigue over prolonged periods, while maintaining focus on vocal and dialogue intelligibility.

    Designed for flexibility as well as great sound, the SMH-1000 makes use of twist-lock detachable cabling. There are two detachable cables included in each box that can be used interchangeably. There is a stretchable 4 to 10' coiled cable that provides better mobility and reach, that also helps prevent snags from pulling the headphones off of your head. This can be useful when navigating through gear-cluttered recording studio environments. There is also a 3' straight cable that is useful when less slack is ideal, such as when using a waist-mounted field recorder or mixer, or when using your mobile device.

    The SMH-1000 has been built with convenience, practicality and comfort in mind as well. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. They also have wire guides to keep the ear-cup wires from pinching. Furthermore, they are fitted with a padded headband and soft, replaceable ear cushions to maximize comfort during extended listening.

    An excellent choice for commercial recording, broadcast, home studios, and live and location sound. Also great for home and portable entertainment.
    Over-ear, closed-back (circumaural) stereo headphone design to help block unwanted environmental noise. Ideal for use in professional applications such as studio or field recording.
    Detachable, twist-locking 10' coiled cable and 3' straight cable included. Replacement cables also available from Senal.
    Enhanced low end designed to allow field engineers to detect wind noise effectively, and for studio engineers to monitor bass and sub bass frequencies.
    Pronounced but smooth midrange tailored to reduce ear fatigue over prolonged periods while maintaining focus on vocal and dialog intelligibility.
    Extended high frequency response designed to reproduce spatial detail accurately. Gradual roll off at 14 kHz allows for accurate low level monitoring and hearing protection.
    Padded headband and soft, replaceable ear cushions. Replacement cushions are available for purchase.
    Easy storage via collapsible folding mechanism.

  • Auray WRW-H4DR Custom Windbuster for Digital Recorders

    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-H4DR Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit a selection of popular digital recorders and is designed to be used on its own without the need of 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 a digital recorder, 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-H4DR helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your recorder's microphone. The windbuster is designed to fit recorders from Marantz, Nagra, Olympus, Roland, Yamaha and Zoom.

    The WRW-H4DR Custom Windbuster for Digital Recorders offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.

    Fits:
    Marantz PMD-620
    Nagra Lino, Pico
    Olympus LS-12, DS-7000, DS-3500
    Roland R-05
