This Zoom H6 Recorder Podcast Kit with Two Rode Procaster Microphones from B&H brings the elements necessary to begin recording a 2-person podcast within minutes of opening the box. The Rode Procaster is a broadcast-quality, dynamic microphone that does a great job capturing speakers near the mic, but without picking up unwanted sounds further away.
The included two-section broadcast arms make positioning the mics a snap. The XLR cables connect the mics to the H6 recorder, which features high-quality mic preamps and records to an SD card. Two pairs of Senal SMH-1000 around-ear headphones are included to provide precise monitoring in comfort for both the host and the guest.
When you're ready to add more guests to your podcast, the H6 can be expanded to accommodate up to six mics with the EXH-6 dual XLR/TRS combo input capsule (available separately). The recorder also features easy-to-reach controls and a large, full-color LCD display angled so it's easy to read in all environments when making on-the-fly adjustments or editing in the field. The system is fully standalone but also ready to interface with a computer for live streaming or for more elaborate post-production work.
Zoom H6 All Black 6-Input / 6-Track Portable Handy Recorder with Single Mic Capsule (Black)
While the original gray H6 is bundled with two mic capsules and premium accessories, the Zoom H6 All Black portable handheld recorder features a sleek black finish and a single mic capsule, making ideal for bands, multi-instrumentalists, and podcasters who don't immediately need the extras. With its X/Y stereo microphone capsule, six versatile mic/line inputs, and up to 6-track recording, the H6 All Black is both user-friendly and easily expandable.Like other H-Series Handy recorders such as the H4n Pro and H5, you can hold it in your hand, attach it to a mic stand or tripod, or mount it to a camera (shoe mount available separately); the H6 All Black packs an impressive array of features into a rugged, rubberized body that's more than ready to meet the varied demands of musicians, content creators, videographers, and sound designers. From the intuitive, tactile controls to the plentiful battery life and powerful audio processing functions, the H6 All Black is well equipped for producing pristine audio for complete musical arrangements, independent films, and panel podcasts. It can supply phantom or plug-in power for condenser mics, or accept direct connections from synths, keyboards, drum machines, or +4 dB line-level mixers. No matter the source, selectable auto-recording and pre-recording ensure that you'll never miss the start of a take, and stereo safety track recording provides duplicate tracks at a lower level to avoid distortion.

Rode Procaster Broadcast-Quality Dynamic Microphone
The Procaster Broadcast-Quality Dynamic Microphone from Rode is designed for capturing speech in broadcast radio, voice-over recording, podcasts, and similar applications. It features a tight cardioid polar pattern and tailored frequency response that result in optimum speech reproduction without off-axis noise. The all-metal construction, internal pop-filter, and internal shockmount further minimize handling noise and contribute to the microphone's durability. The package includes a microphone stand mount and a zip pouch.
Auray BAI-2X Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Internal Springs and Integrated XLR Cable
The Auray BAI-2X is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs and an integrated XLR cable. This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.
The BAI-2X broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2X allows for precise microphone placement.
The BAI-2X also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.
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 enables 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. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. They also have wire guides to keep the earcup wires from pinching. Furthermore, they are fitted with a padded headband and soft replaceable ear cushions to maximize comfort during extended listening.
Kopul 1/8" Stereo Y Cable
The 1/8" Stereo Y Cable from Kopul features a 1/8" stereo male TRS connector that splits to two 1/8" stereo female TRS inputs, allowing you to split a stereo signal, such as a headphone output, to two stereo outputs. It features a premium OFC spiral-shielded cable for reduced EMI and is 8-inches in length. Its gold-plated metal connectors are manufactured by Rean, a trademark of Neutrik.
On-Stage Front Address Pop Filter for EV RE20 and RE320
Designed for the EV RE20 and RE320, the On-Stage Front Address Pop Filter helps mitigate plosives and breath noise during vocal recording and broadcast applications such as voiceover work, radio interviews, and podcasts. The pop filter features a 3" nylon filter that not only reduces P sounds and B sounds but also helps prevent corrosive moisture from damaging your microphone's delicate diaphragm.
The rubber-coated 1.9" clamp holds the filter in place and prevents scratches to the microphone's finish. The depth and angle of the 4.75" shaft and nylon pop screen are adjustable, allowing for a quick and easy setup. The pop filter is also compatible with the Rode Podcaster and Procaster microphones
