The Zoom R8 Recorder/Sampler/Drum Machine and Stereo-Mic Recording Package Kit from B&H includes an R8 8-track digital recorder/interface/controller and sampler from Zoom, a matched pair of Polsen SDC-2150-MP small-diaphragm condenser microphones, the SMH-500 professional studio headphones from Senal, a 4-pack of Duracell AA alkaline batteries, two Auray MS-5230F tripod mic stands with a fixed boom, and two XLRM to XLRF premium microphone cables.

The R8 recorder is an ultra-portable music production solution that is ideal for the musician on the go. It has two-track simultaneous recording and 8-track playback. It records WAV files at a sample rate of 44.1 and 48 kHz and bit rates of 16 and 24-bits. Featuring XLR/TRS combo inputs for connecting external microphones and instruments, the R8 recorder has 48V phantom power on two tracks for supporting condenser mics. There are over 140 DSP effects you can add to your recordings.

The Polsen matched-pair microphones are small-diaphragm cardioid condenser mics for capturing high-quality audio. With a tailored frequency response that slightly accentuates mid-high frequencies, the microphones capture sound naturally and can handle high sound-pressure levels with no distortion.

Furthermore, the included Senal headphones feature accurate sound, offer superior comfort, and are designed for studio and light field applications. They are equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 Ohms impedance and are loud enough when attached to low-powered devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion.

Other accessories include the following: a 4-pack of AA alkaline batteries to power the recorder, two tripod mic stands with 31.5" fixed boom arms to position and support the microphones, and two XLR premium microphone cables to connect to the recorder.

  • Polsen SDC-2150-MP Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone (Matched Pair)

    The matched pair of SDC-2150-MP from Polsen includes two small-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphones for capturing high-quality audio. They feature an accurate and fast response to transient levels and can be used in several applications for recording acoustic instruments such as close-miking pianos, kick drums, cymbals, snares, and more. In addition, as a matched pair the mics are excellent choices for use as stereo room mics or to capture stereo recordings of live performances.

    The SMH-500 Professional Studio Headphones from Senal feature accurate sound, superior comfort, and durable materials. They are designed for studio and light field applications. The over-ear, closed-back design provides ample isolation to block out ambient noise on location, and prevent headphone leakage when recording in the studio. Their soft, replaceable ear cushions, lightweight design and refined sound ensure a comfortable listening experience, even during extended sessions.

    Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 ohm impedance, the SMH-500 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 headphones are designed with an EQ curve that's been tailored for an enhanced low end that allows engineers to detect rumble and monitor bass frequencies effectively. The excellent high-frequency response has been enhanced to accurately and clearly reproduce spatial detail. There is also a slight bump in the midrange to maintain focus on vocal and dialogue intelligibility.

    In addition to great sound, the SMH-500 headphones offer superior comfort with a soft padded headband. The 10' single-sided coiled cable allows freedom of movement for musicians, editors, and engineers.

    Whether monitoring in the field, studio or on a portable device, the SMH-500 headphones provide an accurate and comfortable listening experience.
