Zoom H5 Handheld Digital Recorder
X/Y recording allows you to cover a wide area yet still capture sound sources in the center with clarity and definition making it ideal for all types of live stereo recording. The XYH-5 X/Y microphone capsule included with the H5 provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle. These are housed within an advanced shockmount that employs rugged external mic wires and rubberized material to isolate the unit from the H5 body and thus minimize vibration and handling noise. The design of the XYH-5 also allows the H5 to handle louder sounds than any other Handy Recorder model: 140 dB SPL to be precise—equivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet away—enabling you to capture sounds louder closer and cleaner than you ever could before.
