H4n is Now Obsolete By Smoothbassman on August 7, 2013 Zoom H4n has become obsolete using the discharge of this product.
I've been a lengthy term user from the H4n and I promised because of it within the field to record solid audio in my DSLR video work in addition to quick mix downs when you are performing live audio tracks in my business. This product would be a godsend if this released and I've been utilizing it for a long time. I usually thought, how may you allow it to be better than today, and the H6 addressed our problems that I'd.
* The mic pre-amps within this device are far better than the H4n. The noise floor is gloomier and my publish work after shooting video with my DSLR is way better, the audio sounds warmer and clearer and it appears that the signal is a lot cleaner at low dBs
* 4 channels of XLR away from the box! I really like it! Now I'm able to perform a backup recording or record 4 XLR's simultaneously! I can not let you know the number of occasions I'd have loved to push-up the pre-amp just a little they are driving the noise but I could not becuase of clipping. Now this isn't an issue as you've individual compression on every funnel and the opportunity to perform a dual recording having a backup with less gain.
* Yes this may easily fit in the H4n SKB waterproof situation. When I acquired the unit, I pulled the H4n from the situation and put this directly into it, with all the accessories without any problems. The H6 without the mics attached is exactly the same size as the H4n
* The gain dials are smooth and An ideal addition. Much better than the push button gain control on the H4n
* Pad switches right on the top. Perfect
* Color Display is more preferable around the eyes and Great in low light, and the display dims in order to save battery versus switching off the backlight completely.

by Mr. Gadget on Feb 26, 2014 I have felt the necessity to perform a review around the H6 when i purchased one after studying all of the reviews. I truly did not obtain the feel in the reviews I just read which i could be getting anything not the same as another recorders I have owned over time. True reviewers stated it had been intuitive, and it's nice to possess some attachments, (that have been most likely plastic, simple to knock-off, made noises whenever you moved the system while recording, ETC.) and been under impressed with "simple" operation that basically meant it had become simple to use should you spent 20 hrs mastering the manual, assuming you understood what the author who most likely was Chinese who'd the manual converted into Japanese and then into British...
the thing is, I have visited the dance before and been under impressed. I have owned numerous portable recorders over time, understood enough on how to operate these to be harmful and still did not know what a few of the buttons were for. Obtaining the unit as they are caused deer within the front lights syndrome with fundamental questions for example "how will i turn the factor on" and then after finally working out how you can run it, getting audio used in my computer without them visiting a blank Sdcard...that has happened with a few other "great", "foolproof", "easy to function" and "drop dead outstanding" recorders. (I'd have about just as much success landing the area Shuttle).
No above will also apply to the Zoom H6...it is actually amazing...You will find, that one is really built well and is really easy to make use of I most likely could hands it to my spouse and she'd decipher it...that is saying something as she complains that may be "don't like her".
I have owned numerous fairly greater finish hands held audio recorders. Read more › 6 Comments Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Inspired Imaging on December 9, 2013 Great Recorder and big step-up in the H2n! I have had a number of different types of Zoom recorders and they've really improved through the years. I did not bite around the H4n since the battery existence on phantom and the noise were simply not acceptable. This H6 solves the issues!
Within an informal test using completely new 2400Mah Ni-mh batteries, I acquired 7 hrs and 42 minutes of stereo recording with an AT BP4025 at 48v phantom. That's >7.5 hrs on batteries. awesome!
Another factor to say may be the usb input for power. You can attach an external power source (wall plug, Exterior Battery, ETC) and the recorder could keep recording with no hitch. take away the energy, and it drops back to battery. awesome! For lengthy days, you can easily power this off a higher capacity usb battery.
smartly designed, low noise, Great Options and 6 channel (4 phantom) recording. If you are searching for any good portable recorder, here it is. also, ASIO motorists for six-in/2-to your computer.
------Edit, additional info about not having locking connectors
I have used this a great deal during the last couple of days, and I do not observe how deficiencies in locking connectors is a concern around the H6. My cables (which I have attempted several) all fit snugly and take a little bit of effort to remove. I guess the connectors may put on with time, but from what I see at this time, this can be a non-issue. I have seen the juicedlink video that mentions non-locking connectors like a lower side, but no reality for the reason that. My cables remain in without any type of problem.1 Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.
