Zoom SSH-6 overview

  • 1Description

The Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone Capsule is designed to work with the company's H5 and H6 audio recorders as well as the hybrid Q8 audio and video recorder and their U-44. The capsule includes a super-directional microphone for picking up sound on center that can be combined with a bidirectional side microphone for picking up sound from the left or right to record a fully mono-compatible stereo image for film, video, and television projects. For example, you can record dialogue with the center microphone and then mix the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side microphone with the Zoom recorder. A hairy windscreen is included for helping reduce wind noise.

    Zoom SSH-6 reviews

    SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone Capsule for H5, H6, U-44 and Q8 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great buy! I use this product for on-the-go video production while shooting interviews and live speaking engagements. I love how it works with the h5, so intuitive! It gets amazing sound quality and the controls are great. The only reasons I did not give it a 5 star is because I wish it isolated sound just a little better when it's in directional shot-gun mode, and I also wish it was not so bulky. It would be great if they made a smaller version of this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a shotgun mic... I use this with the Q* video recorder as a room mic for interviews and live band shoots. It works great for what I need, is very portable and affordable. Thumbs up, happy dance and all that...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound from a little addition Great shotgun style mic for interviews and stuff. I did have some trouble figuring out how to adjust the ambiance of the side mics to a degree that I could end up separating the signals later in post, but for now, I'm a happy camper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of both Mono center shotgun mic and stereo side mics Love this mic. It's a great center mono shotgun mic with being able to mix in the right amount of stereo side Audio in post when recorded in RAW. You will love this mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone So far the shotgun mic works very well with both my H6 and H5 Zoom recorders. I have not found anything wrong with this shotgun mic so far. The audio recorded has been fantastic. Just what I have been looking for in audio recording for my video production work. Great product and great price from B&H. Great service from B&H as always. The SSH-6 by Zoom is a perfect fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best capsule for Zoom H6! I wish this capsule and the XY came in a kit with the H6 because it would be killer from the start. The included M/S capsule sounds fantastic, especially for ambient recordings with a vivid stereo image, but the SSH-6 really knocks it out of the park. I haven't tested it against the SGH-6 mono shotgun, but all the reviews and videos comparing them said just get the SSH-6. I am glad I finally did! It's not an MKH416, but it sounds fantastic if you just want to grab some run-n-gun dialogue (with adjustable side ambiance!).� Included dead is pretty pathetic unfortunately. It does reduce wind noise (at least when I blew on it), but it attached using two small bungee loops that are meant to loop around the capsule release buttons. I don't find this method secures it very well, and it partially obscures the gain dial, so I may modify a Movo or similar foam & fur windscreen to slide over the whole thing with a notch to access the dial.� That's my only gripe so far! If you have the Zoom H6 then I cannot recommend this capsule enough.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is ok, but there are much better microphones. I bought this for some interviews but it did not pick up all that well. We used a hand-held mic in addition and that gave much better sound quality both on the speaker and in terms of separation from the surrounding noises which the SSH-6 was picking up.
