5.0 out of 5 stars Pride of ownership
By Christopher Perez on April 16, 2017
I purchased the Zoom H6 after starting out with the also-fine H4nPro. I needed additional XLR ports without resorting to cable and adapter workarounds. I will be using it primarily to record interviews and podcasts with each participant (3-4 on avg) on their own dedicated XLR dynamic mic.

The H6 is the "Papa Bear" of Zoom's line of field recorders. Leader of the pack. For its pricepoint of around $350, it isn't exactly an impulse buy, but for the value and features it delivers, I believe it is a great buy. It is truly a studio in the palm of your hand.

It is a very intuitive device to figure out whether you're a hobbyist like me, or an advanced audio pro. I was able to get everything strung up and produce some high-quality recordings very quickly. Re ergonomics, the shape and build of the H6 make it easy to use when it is lying flat on a work surface. However, I decided to mount it to a [[ASIN:B00D76RNLS Manfrotto MTPIXI-B PIXI Mini Tripod, Black]]. Part of my enjoyment of having nice gear is to see it in action. The H6 + PIXI combo is a very cool sight in the middle of any recording setup! (Note: there is a knockoff tripod for about 1/3 the price but I decided to get the Manfrotto after seeing it in use with my wife's MEVO camera).

One of the few knocks against the H6 is the exposed and unlockable gain knobs for each input. I can see how this could be an issue in a situation where a sound tech had this in a gear bag out in the field. Random bumps could move the knobs and that would not be good. For my needs in a more controlled and stable setting, this has never been an issue. In fact it is a good thing because I can easily "ride" the gain knobs if necessary during a recording. I would not be surprised if someone has come up with a hack or aftermarket device to cover the knobs in some way.

Another knock is the angle and location of the screen. This is an issue for people recording themselves via the capsules on top of the device. In that application, the capsules would be facing the audio source and the screen would not be viewable to monitor levels, etc. Again, for this hobbyist podcaster, this has not been a problem.

One accessory I would love to see is a protector to prevent scratches on the display screen. I have heard of some workarounds that people have used but Zoom would do well to offer a custom-fit item for this.

Re energy consumption, I installed the 4 alkaline batteries that it shipped with, but I mostly power it via USB cable and a small white Apple charging block. I also have a small [[ASIN:B00EF1OGOG Anker Astro 6700mAh Ultra-Compact Premium Portable Charger (2nd Generation External Battery Power Bank) with Fast Charging PowerIQ Techonology and Panasonic Battery Cells]] that I keep in my gear bag that will power the H6.

The Zoom H6 is a piece of gear that you will be proud to own and use. It is the core of my recording setup and I love pulling it out of its case each time I use it. You will not have any buyers' remorse if you spring for the Zoom H6!
