ZOOM H6essential
32-bit Float Recording for All

THE FLAGSHIP

Zoom's most robust handheld recorder, the H6essential, is a recording powerhouse. With six tracks of 32-bit float recording, the H6essential provides unprecedented quality and unmatched versatility.

STEP UP TO 32-BIT FLOAT

With 32-bit float and dual AD converters, the H6essential captures a huge dynamic range. This allows creators to record perfect audio, clip-free every time.

THE FIRST HANDY RECORDERS WITH ACCESSIBILITY

The Essential Series was designed with Accessibility for the blind and visually impaired. Navigate the menu with audible descriptions through the built-in speaker or headphones. Creators can choose English, Spanish, French, Japanese, German, Italian or Chinese.

SIX PERFECT TRACKS

The 4 XLR/TRS combo inputs feature ultra-clean Zoom preamps, and the included X/Y microphones can capture up to a booming 135 dB SPL, equivalent to a jet taking off. 

NEXT GENERATION 3.0 CAPSULE SYSTEM

The H6essential's 3.0 capsule system has been updated to support 32-bit float and gives creators more options to use the right mic for their recording.  

RECORD AND STREAM

Connect the USB-C port to a PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device to use the H6essential as a 32-bit float interface while simultaneously recording all 6 tracks to an SD card.

Essential For Creators

FOR MUSICIANS

The H6essential is a portable studio. Mic up to 4 instruments using the XLR inputs and use the X/Y microphones to capture the full ensemble in beautiful stereo.

Essential Versatility For All Creators

CAPSULES:

XYH-6e Stereo Mic Capsule (Included)
Adds two high-quality microphones in an X/Y stereo arrangement. This arrangement is most sensitive to audio directly in front while also capturing a clean stereo image. 
SSH-6e Stereo Shotgun Capsule (not included)
The SSH-6e includes a super-directional microphone to pick up sound in the center and a bidirectional side mic to pick up sounds from the left and right. The mid-side stereo image is adjustable from mono to ultra-wide stereo pickup. You can capture dialogue with the center mic and mix in the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side mic.
EXH-6e Input Capsule (not included)
If you need more inputs, simply plug in the EXH-6e dual XLR/TRS combo capsule. This allows you to connect two additional microphones, instruments, or line-level sources. Phantom power can be applied if you connect power to the capsule's USB-C port. There is also a 3.5mm jack for line or mic-level input with plug-in power available for lavalier mics.
