The new standard in portable recording 
Our products are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the creators who use them. With the H5 Handy Recorder, the tradition continues. The H5 provides four tracks of simultaneous recording and, like our flagship H6, it uses a system of interchangeable input capsules, allowing you to choose the best microphone for every recording situation. In addition to being fully compatible with all H6 capsules, the H5 comes with a newly redesigned detachable X/Y stereo microphone, housed in an improved shockmount for reduced handling noise and equipped with advanced electronics for extended signal capacity.

  • X/Y mic capsule

  • Wavelab LE Software
  • Foam Windscreen

  • Awesome Portable Recorder

First and foremost, what you record will sound really good. The XY mics are great and can be swapped out for other mics by Zoom. $ channels of simultaneous recording. It's handy and useful.

With the H5, you get 4 channels of simultaneous recording. It can record up to 24-bit 96kHz and 140dB SPL, so you can achieve professional-grade recordings in almost any conditions. The included XY capsule mics sound incredible, and there is a wide variety of interchangeable capsules available from Zoom. It can be used via USB as a computer audio interface. It can also be mounted on a camera for a great sounding and easy to use a/v upgrade. There are built-in compression, low-cut filter, and limiter, as well as a chromatic tuner and metronome.

  • A little tricky at first
  • September 02, 2014
  • By: BLT

This device was a little tricky to use the first time, but don't give up. It was well worth the small learning curve once I determined the differences between the different recording modes. 99% of the time I'll just be using this for a stereo location recorder, but once I learned how to switch this into the 4-track mode I decided to write a scratch track for a song with guitar and vocals. Then I was able to easily transfer the tracks to my computer. I'm anxious to try some of the different mic options now for field recording.
