    Got this for $300 last year which was a ridiculous bargain. If you need this device, it's brilliant.

    • I own an older version of H6, years back when I purchased from dodgy Kogan lol, the audio recording quality is very good.

    • Have the H4N for years now, don't do more than three audio sources, would this provide any upgrade benefits?

      • No, I wouldn't think so. (I had an H4 back in the day. WAY back…)

      • looks like this one has 4 xlr or 1/4" inputs now. Which is pretty impressive haha

        i do wonder if it can be plugged into a ipad pro though. That'd be an instant buy for me then.

    • @ mickeyjuiceman. Did you purchase it new and, out of curiosity, where from?

      • Yeah, from Amazon. They had some ridiculous discount code applied.

  • these zoom handheld recording devices are fantastic, still running my 10 year old H4N, and the recording quality is top notch.

    The H2N is around $200 currently and looks less like a taser.

      And is completely and utterly different.

  • Is the only benefit of this over a Zoom P4 the fact that it has two mics attached to the body? I've been looking at purchasing a recorder that can take 4 XLR inputs for podcasting.

    • +2

      that top piece can be swapped out for different attachments. So a shotgun mic, an extra 2 channels of xlr too. I think a couple others too.

      • Thank you for that, that's super interesting that that's how they do it, it seems to be a good idea for something like video shots mostly then.

    • There are more differences. If you just want to podcast then the P4 suits that usecase better I think. I have the h5 and p5.

    • +2

      The H6 also has 1/4" inputs and can record up to 24/96 vs 16/44.1 on the P4, plus some other minor differences. If it's purely for podcasting, I would go for the P4. It has slightly better mic preamps and more podcast specific functionality built in that don't require workarounds like the H6 would.

      • Hm thanks for that, I didn't realise that the P4 wouldn't have the 1/4" inputs but I guess I'd only be using XLRs, I'm very interested in it because it seems to be able to run Shure SM58s without maxing out the gain like I have to on the Scarlett Solo I'm currently borrowing. I've read a bit about how people wish it did 48kHz but I think that it will be fine for me, I post to YouTube but that's a tiny percentage of views and I figure YouTube is cutting down the quality anyway.

        • +1

          No worries. The P4 has 70 dB of gain with an EIN of -124 dBu. So more gain but a slightly higher self noise than the Scarlett I think, depends on your environment whether or not that's an issue but you'll probably be fine.

    What did they update in 2020? I've owned a H6 since 2014ish and the rubber coating has perished still fine to use but sticky! Just curious if it's worth while upgrading.

    • Having them turn sticky after a few years seems to be a design goal at Zoom, indeed.

    • +1

      They made only a cosmetic change (silver to black), no longer supply the capsule mic in the bundle (now it's $140 separately), and raised the price.

  • is this the same company that does zoom video conferencing

  • What's different compare to Rode like this https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/658379

    • The Rode is just a microphone

    • +1

      This bad boy is like a portable sound studio, you can plug a whole bunch of mics into the different inputs, as well as the onboard mics on the top (the weird cross things). This can then either run as its own separate sound device or plugged into another computer/camera system as basically a mix desk/sound card, and you then have one hell of a portable sound recording setup that runs on batteries. Taken the H4N out on many shoots capturing all sorts of stuff and has not missed a beat.

      The Rode mic is a usb mic that acts as an input using USB for your device.

      • good explain ^^

  • Can't see backorder, post no longer shown this price

    • Yep, it's done and dusted. It's back to approx. $500.
