Advanced preamps, interchangeable capsules, compact design, and more make Zoom’s H6 Handy Recorder the ultimate in portable recording. Whether recording audio for podcasts, films, or music, the H6’s award-winning quality and exceptional versatility will quickly make it a must-have tool in your content creation.

It’s hard to be prepared for anything that could come your way, but the H6 does just that! With inputs available for up to six guests and the option of battery power, the H6 offers a complete solution for taking your podcast on location. Acting as a personal music studio, the H6 is equipped to work with you from concept to the full track with up to six line-level/mic-level inputs, overdub ability, and so much more. It can also function as a multi-channel audio interface via a USB port. Interchangeable mic capsules, four combo inputs, and six tracks of quality recording ensure the H6 is ready for quality recording anywhere, anytime.

Four XLR/TRS combo jacks are available on the H6, each with dedicated pad switches and gain control to help ensure distortion-free recording. Two 1/8” outputs, a stereo line out, and a headphone out with dedicated volume control are also available.

Recording sessions won’t get cut short due to power loss: the H6 can record for up to 20 hours with 4 AA batteries (sold separately), or even longer using an AD-17 adapter (sold separately). The Handy Recorder records individual WAV files in different formats.
