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 6-Input / 6-Track Portable Handy Recorder with Interchangeable Mic Capsules
Ideal for bands, multi-instrumentalists, and podcasters, the Zoom H6 portable handheld recorder lets you quickly record up to six simultaneous input signals regardless of your audio experience. With two swappable stereo microphone capsules, six versatile mic/line inputs, and up to 6-track recording, the H6 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 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 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.
Fast, User-Friendly Operability
Day or night, view vital information such as audio levels, recording time, battery status, and more on the 2" full-color LCD, which happens to be backlit and angled for maximum visibility.
Instant Access to Gain Adjustments
Interchangeable Stereo Microphone Capsules
The XYH-6 capsule provides clear, phase-accurate capture in two different X/Y positions—90° for a tight stereo image or 120° for a wider perspective. Just twist the capsules to their premarked positions to switch between the two configurations.
Switch to the MSH-6 capsule to record in a mid-side configuration. Its front-facing directional element picks up direct signal while the side-facing bidirectional element captures ambience. The H6's integrated MS decoder allows adjustment to the perceived width of the stereo image, which is beneficial for sound design, broadcasting, or general stereo-to-mono compatibility.
Supports Interchangeable Zoom Mic Capsules
Six Channels of Microphone/Line Inputs
Record All Channels Live or Overdub Layers
SD Card Recording and Audio Interface Functionality
Alternatively, use the H6 as a 6-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz. For audio interface operation with an iPad (Apple Camera Connection Kit required and available separately), select USB stereo mode, which offers two channels in and out at up to 16-bit / 48 kHz.

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 for 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 as well. The headphones have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. They also have wire guides to keep the ear-cup wires from pinching. Furthermore, they are fitted with a padded headband and soft, replaceable ear cushions to maximize comfort during extended listening.
Auray WRW-H4N Custom Windbuster for Select Zoom & Tascam Handheld Audio Recorders
The Auray WRW Series Custom Windbuster provides dual-layered wind protection and is designed to substantially reduce unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high-frequency loss.
This WRW-H4N windbuster has been tailor-made to fit the Zoom H4n Pro and is designed to be used either on its own or over a foam windscreen. It also fits the Zoom H2n, H5, and H6 as well as the Tascam DR-05X and DR-07X handheld audio recorders. 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 compatible 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 20 to 30 dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high-frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for substantial wind noise reduction.
In addition to dual-layered wind protection, the WRW-H4N helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your recorder's microphone. The windbuster is designed to fit the Zoom Handy H4n Pro, H2n, H5, and H6, and the Tascam DR-05X and DR-07X portable audio recorders.
The WRW-H4N Custom Windbuster offers an extremely effective dual-layered solution for wind protection.
