H6 Black - The Recorder That Does It All

The H6 is the ultimate portable recorder. With its advanced preamps and interchangeable capsules, the H6 delivers unmatched versatility and award-winning quality. The durable, rugged exterior and ability to record continuously for over 20 hours on four AA batteries means you can record almost anywhere, from live concert recording to podcasting, videography to studio recording and more. The H6's USB port enables it to serve as a stereo or multi-channel audio interface for your computer or iPad.

Sound for Every Scene
Featuring interchangeable mic capsules, four combo inputs and six tracks of quality recording, the H6 is ready to record on any set and in any scene the director throws at you. Whether you're a musician creating your own unique masterpiece, or a sound designer looking for that perfect sound effect, the H6 will become your most trusted companion.

XYH-6 X/Y Capsule
The H6's included X/Y capsule employs two angled high-quality unidirectional mics which are sensitive to signals coming from the front, but less to signals from the sides and rear. X/Y recording is optimum when you want to cover a wide area yet still capture a strong centre image, making it the perfect choice for all types of live stereo recording.

The original H6 that came with a case, two microphone attachments and some software was great until the rubber on the outside started going sticky to the point that it was not usable. The new all-black version solves that problem but it comes only with XY microphone attachment and nothing else. It is still an excellent recorder (minus the 32bit recording): long battery life, very good quality (I use it for video). The only draw back is that only the XY recording can have a backup track at -10 or -12dB, not the individual XLR imputs.

Awesome recording tool with tons of upgrade options and compatibility. This black edition lacks ms capsule but not everybody needs it anyway, plus external dedicated mics do overall better job anyway. But if you need it its only 99CAD. VERY LOW noise floor, but XY is very sensitive, so it picks up any existing noise or hum, play with on board compressors or post-process. Super long life and can work on NiMH accumulators. Can be plugged to USB to work without batteries and can be directly connected to a computer, need to download ASIO drivers. Solid and heavy like a good photo camera. Very happy with the purchase. Don't understand when such a good product underrated for the lack of accessories, just buy what you need.

I had a zoom h4n for years and finally upgraded. If you are wanting to do anything with more than two mics it works amazing! It's loaded with great features and is relatively easy to use after a bit of fiddling with the settings for a bit. The only thing is you will definitely want to pick up the accessories kit right away and you will also want to grab a case at some point. Aside from the lacking extras, it is %100 worth it!

When I bought my first Zoom H6 in 2018 it came with the recorder, two microphones, a case, a windsock, and a cable to plug it into your computer. After 2020, Zoom rebranded the H6 as the Black version and removed one mic, the case, the windsock, and the cable but kept the same price. Bad value.
