The H5 Handy from Zoom is a compact, portable handheld digital recorder that is capable of four-track recording and features an interchangeable, modular microphone system. The recorder ships with an XY microphone capsule and is compatible with the existing line of H6 modules including the optional shotgun mic and XLR/TRS input modules.

The included XY stereo mic module provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle, and features a built-in shockmount system and a maximum SPL of 140dB. Additionally, the recorder is equipped with two inputs for external sources, allowing you to record simultaneously with the included stereo XY mic for a total of four input channels. Each input is controllable by its own analogue gain knob, and also has a -20dB pad.

The recorder also has an LCD screen and a side-mounted toggle control for navigating through the menu options. It gives you fast access to transport functions, offering physical control buttons right underneath the screen, and conveniently stores its recorded audio to external SD cards.

In addition to the detachable X/Y capsule, the recorder also ships with a foam windscreen, a 2GB SD card, two AA batteries, a USB cable, WaveLab LE (download), Cubase LE (download), and a hard plastic case.

    The battery life on this Zoom is king. I tested with the provided alkaline batteries using the top mic at 48khz/16bit and I gave up after six hours. There was one bar left. I then used power rex re-charge batteries (not new) and used the top mic, input 1 from an iPad, input 2 to from a sony wireless mic system (phantom off on 1 & 2). Recorded 48khz/16bit. After four hours of recording finally got the unit down to 1 bar. My old Zoom h4n was no where near as good as this battery king. I am more than happy with the battery life on this unit. I've not bothered with the sound quality, I've seen enough reviews on youtube to know its good enough for me. Cheers Ratu
