You might not think a portable digital recorder would need to wear a thick fur hat in the sweltering heat of summer, but if you're using its built-in microphones, special windshields are absolutely necessary to protect your audio from wind noise. Not only will they allow you to capture clean audio in gusty locations, they also make your recorder look really cute.

This week one of my co-workers asked me which inexpensive shotgun microphone I recommended for use with a Zoom H4n portable recorder. His one requirement was that the mic could not cost more than $150. I looked at the available options in this price range for a few minutes and eventually came back with nothing. The simple answer was that the best shotgun microphone in the $150 price range costs around $250.

Our customers have always been Sennheiser fanatics. Their Evolution Series wireless systems and wired microphones have maintained a well deserved popularity. Even when I walk around the B&H executive offices, I always see lots of our employees wearing Sennheiser's HD-280 Pro headphones (because they sound so nice and really block out noise). So it goes without saying that B&H is indeed proud to be named Sennheiser's Dealer of the Year in their professional audio business category.
This curious looking wavy blue ring is causing a lot of confusion for customers who buy new R0DE microphones. The ring is a small spacer that comes installed inside of the mic. The ring can be easily removed, and it's a good idea to remove it immediately after you buy a new R0DE. The ring prohibits many XLR cables from connecting, and you may think your new mic is defective if you're unaware of this issue.
