The Zoom H6 Portable Recorder Field Kit from B&H provides you with everything you need to make high-quality field recordings for ENG, video, film and similar applications. The kit includes the Zoom H6 Handy recorder, 16GB SDHC memory card, SMH-1000 monitor headphones, custom windbuster and black recorder strap.

The Zoom H6 Handy is a portable handheld recorder and USB audio interface that features an interchangeable microphone system. The recorder ships with both XY and mid-side microphone modules, foam windscreen, 2GB SD card, four AA batteries, USB cable, Cubase LE and a hard carrying case.

The 16GB SDHC is a Secure Digital High Capacity memory card. It offers an SD Class 10 rating, along with an Ultra High Speed Class 1 rating, giving it the power to achieve read speeds up to 30MB/s and lower write speeds of at least 10MB/s and likely greater.

The SMH-1000 Closed-Back Professional Monitor Headphones 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 field and studio applications.

The Custom Windbuster is a solution for reducing wind noise and vocal plosives while recording with your H6 Handy recorder's X/Y Mic. It features high-quality simulated fur on the outside, and a lint-free acoustic cloth lining on the inside for additional noise reduction. The design lowers wind velocity around the microphone and provides up to 30 to 40 dB of wind noise reduction.

The black recorder strap is a 1.0" wide and is made from high-tech memory foam that contours to the shape of the neck and shoulders creating a custom fit. It also uses antimicrobial material to draw away moisture, for use in all weather conditions.

  • Zoom H6 Handy Recorder with Interchangeable Microphone System

    The H6 Handy from Zoom is a portable handheld recorder and USB audio interface that features an interchangeable microphone system. The recorder ships with both XY and mid-side microphone modules, foam windscreen, 2GB SD card, four AA batteries, USB cable, Cubase LE and a hard carrying case. Optional module attachments can be purchased for expanded functionality.

    The H6 Handy allows for versatile recording techniques, giving you several options right out of the box. The included XYH-6 XY microphone module is made up of two matched unidirectional condenser microphones and is intended for capturing accurate, phase-correct stereo audio. The module allows you to adjust the angle of the two mics to either 90 degrees, or for a wider stereo image, 120 degrees.

    For situations that call for audio that allows for width control over your stereo image after it has been recorded, the XY module can be switched out for the MSH-6 mid-side stereo microphone module. Contrary to the appearance of the capsule, the mid-side module actually contains two elements positioned on top of one another: a unidirectional mic which faces forward (mid), and a bi-directional mic set perpendicular to it (side). In addition to providing you the ability to adjust the width of your stereo audio after it has been recorded, MS recording also provides true mono compatibility, a factor that comes into play in situations such as television production.

    In addition, the H6 is equipped with four XLR/TRS combo inputs for connecting external mic/line sources such as microphones or mixers. All four inputs and each of the mic modules are equipped with their own preamps with dedicated gain knobs that are easily accessible whether you have the unit mounted to your camera, or strapped over your shoulder. Also, each of the four combo inputs has its own -20dB pad.

    The recorder allows you to record up to six channels at once and stores them to SDXC memory cards up to 128GB in size. It also features a backup-record option that tracks a duplicate of the left and right channels with -12db input gain. This means that if you find that you have tracked your main audio too loud and that distortion has occurred in your audio, you will have a backup stereo mix with 12 db more headroom as a fail-safe. The unit also doubles as a 6-in/2-out USB audio interface and it can be used with your computer running the included Cubase LE or other DAW software.

  • Senal SMH-1200 - Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones (Onyx)

    The onyx version of the SMH-1200 Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal is tuned for accurate music reproduction and studio monitoring. With a closed-back, over-the-ear, foldable design and features like interchangeable twist-locking cables, extra deep ear cushions, and a refined musical frequency response, the SMH-1200s are suitable for both audio professionals and enthusiasts.

    Using 40mm Neodymium drivers, the headphones deliver a wide frequency response of 10 to 20,000 Hz with minimal distortion, a slightly boosted low end for well-defined bass and sub-bass, a smooth and pronounced midrange, and a clear intelligible high end. The extra deep ear pads provide comfort while wearing the headphones for extended listening sessions and help passively isolate the sound from external noise.

    Physically the SMH-1200s are designed to be robust and appropriate for use with professional audio equipment such as mixing consoles and headphone amplifiers. Their 58-ohm impedance can also operate with lower-power devices such as smart phones or mp3 players for mobile listening. Color-matched elements combine for an elegant look.

    They come with two twist-lock detachable cables that can be easily swapped depending on the application. The coiled cable can extend from 4 to 10 feet and is intended for studio use. The 4-foot, tangle-free, fabric cable includes an in-line microphone for phone calls and a control button for operating smart phones and other mobile devices. A wide range of accessories is supported.

    To ensure years of reliable operation, the earcups feature wire guides to protect the cabling and maintain the performance of the SMH-1200.

    Note: Due to variations in cell phone manufacturing, the included mobile cable may not work on all models of cell phones. For full functionality on Android phones, a third-party app such as Headset Button Controller may be required.

  • Auray WRW-H4DR Custom Windbuster for Digital Recorders

    The Auray WRW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual layered wind protection and are designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss.

    This WRW-H4DR Custom Windbuster has been tailor-made to fit a selection of popular digital recorders and is designed to be used on its own without the need of a foam windscreen. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound.

    When used on a digital recorder, this windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light breeze to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph) and users can generally expect a 20dB to 30dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction.

    In addition to dual layered wind protection, the WRW-H4DR helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your recorder's microphone. The windbuster is designed to fit recorders from Marantz, Nagra, Olympus, Roland, Yamaha and Zoom.

    The WRW-H4DR Custom Windbuster for Digital Recorders offers an extremely effective dual layered solution for wind protection.

    Fits:
    Marantz PMD-620
    Nagra Lino, Pico
    Olympus LS-12, DS-7000, DS-3500
    Roland R-05
