Description

I read manuals before using a product, but I was slightly confused by the multi or stereo recording functionality - however, following the instructions fixed this immediately. These are guarded by useful protective bars, which can help prevent accidental toggling during a recording session. Like XYH-5, Zoom XYH-6 is an X/Y audio capturing microphone capsule however it doesn’t have shock mounting properties. The only feature I'd like to see the manufacturers add is auto-off, or sleep mode, after a user-selected idle period.

I previously owned a Zoom H4n and got the H5 because it is smaller, lighter and has the flexability of recording up to 4 tracks and has the interchangeable mics.

The sound quality, noise floor, and sound stage are all decent enough on the H5, not the best but certainly not the worst - better quality will cost you much much more.

It does not pick up subsonic rumble, which makes it fairly good for a microphone, as that can be quite annoying in a mic. By comparison, you could have an entire band play music, and record them using the H5’s XY mic, and it would sound amazing.

Each input has its own gain control knob, and the XYH-5 capsule also provides an additional mic/line input through a ⅛" mini phone jack.Power the H5 via two AA batteries, or plug it into a wall outlet with an AD-17 AC adapter (available separately). Day or night, view vital information such as audio levels, recording time, battery status, and more on the large, monochrome backlit LCD. The main problem with it is that it records Echo really well, since it is made for field recording, and it is supposed to record an entire place, not just voices. Note that media cards are available separately, and larger capacity cards will increase startup times. Even when they are both placed ideally, the sound of H2n is very flat, has a ton more hiss, and generally lacks detail and dynamics compared to H5.

Audio is more than 50% of a video, and Zoom H5, and even the tiny Zoom H2n can help with that a lot. THAT SAID, the recording quality on the H5 is remarkably higher than the previous brothers, the sound is just more naturally "in your face" and easily verges on a studio-like sound. By keeping the previous two seconds of audio whenever you press the record button, the pre-record option ensures that you'll never cut off the beginning of a great take. A rotary gain controller, with guard to avoid accidental adjustment, is positioned on the top of the microphone base for easy adjustment. Compression and limiting compensate for fluctuations in input level, while a low-cut filter helps eliminate wind noise, blowing, and other kinds of low frequency rumble.That means that if you bought one through there, we’d earn a small commission from it, at no extra cost to yourself. Included accessories: Padded shell case, microUSB cable, AD-17 power adapter, foam windscreen, 2x AAA batteries, quick start guide. There's playback looping, pitch change and variable playback speed (without pitch change) to help with phrase training. Two AAA alkaline batteries give up to 10 hours of continuous operation; or included AD-17 AC adapter may be used.
