Hey @josker, I have an H5 and I’m very happy with it. I initially got mine as a means to take better quality field recordings so that I could integrate some interesting sounds and textures into my tracks. To my ears, the sound quality is really great (although, this is the first handheld mic thingy I’ve ever owned, so I don’t have much to compare it to). It really opens up a multitude of creative things to mess around with. Even just sticking it out the window, capturing a stereo recording and listening back fills you with inspiration for stuff to try. I’ve also plugged my gear into it to record full tracks, to avoid faffing around with computers and audio interfaces. (I understand you can use the H5 as an audio interface itself, although I haven’t tried that). I’ve made op-1 drum kits from sounds I’ve recorded into the H5 and transfered into Audacity for chopping up. Actually, I’m in Iceland at the moment and I’m kicking myself for fogetting to bring it with me!
I rock a little H1. It also works as a USB mic too.
I’ve got the Zoom H2N and that’s a wonderful mic ! Pretty small, but all-in stuffs
+1 on the h5. Very nice sounding mics, it’s weird, when listening to random recordings of conversations, I’ll turn my head thinking someone actually said something IRL… The interchangeable modules is useful too (allows for 4-track recording with the XLR module).
I have the h6 and it is awesome!
