The new Zoom H6 handheld recorder is now shipping.
As you may recall, the Zoom H6 has just about everything the Zoom H4n was missing. It features up to 6 XLR inputs (4 on-board and 2 additional inputs available via an option module) with the ability to record to all 6 simultaneously. The H6 also includes independent gain dials for each channel and a revised display and menu system.
Additional modules allow you to attach a shotgun mic, XY mic or a mid-side mic. It captures up to 24-bit/96kHz audio to SDXC cards.
The Zoom H6 retails for $399.99. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Tascam’s DR-100mkII is currently available for $245 (reg. around $300). This is one of the better handheld XLR recorders out there, one that I think is better than the Zoom H4n. You can read my comparison review between the Tascam DR-100mkII, Zoom H4n and Olympus LS100.
You can find the Tascam DR-100mkII deals here at B&H Photo and here at Amazon.com.
B&H has the Tascam iM2 stereo mic adapter for the iPhone, iPad and iPhone for only $28.99 (reg. $89). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Note, the iM2 doesn’t have the new Lightning adapter (as you can see in the above image), so it won’t fit the iPhone 5.

B&H has the Sony MDR-7506 pro studio headphones for $82.95 (reg. $99). If you are monitoring or mixing any audio for video editing or otherwise want/need good, accurate sound these are a solid buy.
I paid the $100 retail price for mine a few years ago. They are the absolute best bang-for-your-buck studio headphones on the market – and have been for years. They are worth every penny of the $100 retail price and are a real bargain at $83 with free shipping.
