The capsule in the Zoom XYH-6 Microphone for H5/H6 employs two angled high-quality unidirectional mics which are sensitive to signals coming from the front but less to signals coming from the sides and rear. This capsule is an interchangeable component in Zoom's H5 and H6 modular recorder system.
X/Y recording is optimum when you want to cover a wide area yet still capture a strong center image, making it the perfect choice for all types of live stereo recording. This arrangement enables allows the recorder to pickup sounds in a cardioid polar pattern, and is predominately sensitive to sounds directly in front of the recorder and less sensitive to sounds on the side or to the rear of the device. The XY pattern allows recordings played back in mono to have a fuller sound than would normally be possible from a single microphone element. The XYH-6 has an adjustable X/Y pattern with an adjustable angle of between 90 and 120 degrees.
The unit can be used for a wide range of applications including studio, live performance, rehearsals, and TV broadcast, among others.
The XYH-6 adjustable X/Y microphone capsule is compatible with the Zoom H5 and H6 Handy Recorders, Q8 Handy Video Recorder, U-44 Handy Audio Interface, F4 and F8 MultiTrack Field Recorders, as well as the ECM-3 extension cable for Zoom microphone capsules.
