Packaged together by B&H for your convenience, this Zoom H5 Podcast Mic Kit bundles together everything you need to get started recording a panel-person podcast—or multi-person interviews in the field—nearly anywhere. It comes with the Zoom H5, an industry standard for broadcast and podcast professionals who take their recording setups with them on the go. The unit's long battery life, field-accessible controls, low-noise/high-gain preamps, four-track recording capability, switchable mic capsules, 96 kHz/24-bit audio capture, and USB audio interface functionality make it a boon to those who record audio interviews for a living in a variety of locales.
Also included are four Zoom ZDM-1 Podcast Mic Packs. Each pack comes with a Zoom ZDM-1 microphone, which is a broadcast-style, end-address dynamic mic with a supercardioid pickup pattern; this is useful so that each vocal stays isolated in the recording, making editing in post much easier. Each mic is tuned to deliver a robust tone with smooth highs and tight lows. Thanks to high SPL handling and a broad frequency response, each mic will deliver a mix-ready sound.
Use the supplied windscreens to protect against plosives or wind noise, if you're interviewing someone outside. Mount each mic on a desk with the included tabletop stands. For monitoring, four pairs of Zoom ZHP-1 over-ear headphones are included—one for you, three for your guests or co-hosts.
Zoom H5 4-Input / 4-Track Portable Handy Recorder with Interchangeable X/Y Mic Capsule
Ideal for documentaries, podcasting, audio for video, and professional sound design, the Zoom H5 portable handheld recorder lets you quickly record up to four input signals regardless of your audio experience. With a swappable stereo microphone capsule, versatile 2-channel inputs, and up to 4-track recording, the H5 is both user-friendly and easily expandable.Like other H-Series Handy recorders such as the H4n Pro and H6, 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 H5 packs an impressive array of features into a rugged, rubberized body that's more than ready to meet the varied demands of musicians, videographers, sound designers, content creators, and news shooters. From the plentiful battery life to the powerful audio processing functions, the H5 is well equipped to handle anything from tracking live performances and podcasts to recording interviews, dialogue, and sound effects. 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.

Zoom ZDM-1 Dynamic Microphone
Tuned to deliver a robust vocal tone with smooth highs and tight lows, the Zoom ZDM-1 is an affordable dynamic microphone that's ideal for podcasters, radio show announcers, rappers, and singers. Thanks to its high SPL handling and broad frequency response, this end-address mic makes it easy to capture your voice with mix-ready broadcast quality.
The large-diaphragm dynamic capsule utilizes a supercardioid pickup pattern to effectively reduce ambient sound such as room noise at the sides of the mic. To isolate the pickup element from handling noise, vibrations, and rumble, the ZDM-1 employs an integrated shock-absorbing mechanism. The ZDM-1's integral humbucking circuit improves the signal-to-noise ratio by inhibiting electromagnetic interference from common sources such as wireless devices, power lines, computer displays, and more.
The all-metal body and grille afford ruggedness and durability for reliable use session after session. The ZDM-1 includes a pivoting mic stand mount for easy positioning and a custom windscreen for attenuation of plosives and breath noise.
