Great deal By:
I used these mics for a doc we're filming and they worked great. They do require a bit of setup, volume-wise, but once you get the levels set, they're great. They're not exactly what I'd call heavy duty - you need to handle them with a certain amount of care, but they are sturdy enough to do the job. The mic wires and the wire to the camera from the receiver feature locking sleeves so they won't pull out of the jacks, which is a great feature and always appreciated. Good quality mics and a real bargain for the price, I'd recommend them.
Good value for the money By:
Just what I needed
Very helpful By:
This is a great product and is easy to use.
Great buy By:
Doesn’t work with my camera but that is my fault. We use this same brand at work and they work great.
First time mic user By:
Works great indoors. Haven’t tried outside yet. Use headphones to get the volume right before recording.

Love it By:

excellent sound quality By:
A little delicate, but light and easy to carry
Great audio quality By:
For a beginner videographer, this will give you and edge in terms of audio
Small and good quality audio By:
This recorder is small and very useful. I love the kit it came in, the mount is a little bulky but really helpful. The audio is professional grade.
Great quality on a budget By:
Awesome for filmmakers on a budget. Audio quality is half of the process and this does a great job. Definitely recommend
Best bundle you can get with the Zoom H1n By:
The deadcat works well, but the handle could be better. The Zoom H1n is a solid starter recorder with good preamps for plugging in a lavalier mic or shotgun mic.
High Quality Bundle By:
Everything in the photo came in one box like expected, sometimes sellers don't send everything pictured in a bundle. Although I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of the accessories, both the grip and the mount are made by move, and I am not sure about the windscreen. Grip is perfect to use to mount on top of a tripod because it has threads on the bottom, although there are threads on the bottom of the cold shoe mount and well. I prefer removing the grip and using it for a camera, or on the bottom of my DJI Osmo
Good purchase By:
Nice affordable starter mike!
Five Stars By:
Awesome product, thanks for the fast delivery!
Fits my Canon Rebel T6i perfectly! By:
The whole kit is super easy to use and does exactly what I need!I was a little skeptical about the shock mount because it was so springy, but it works great and is super resistant to breaking!
Very happy with an entry level recorder. By:
I am no audio engineer, but I needed a device to record lines to rehearse a play. I considered this device and the Tascam DR-05. I bought this based on the reviews of the previous model and the improvements made to this device. I have used it several times and am impressed by the ease of use, portability, and sensitivity of the microphones.One thing I have noticed though, is if you remove the memory card and rename the files as I did, the device will not recognize the file for playback on the device. If you were to rename file zoom0002.mp3 as Act1Sc2.mp3, it will not play on the H1n. It's okay as I downloaded the files to my phone and laptop to play with any software. I suppose I could go back to the Zoom filenames, but they're not descriptive.The unit has a lot of features I'll never use, but I will take it to record bands (not illegally of course) at local bars.Overall, I'm very happy and the dead cat and base are a great deal if bought as a package.

The Perfect Interview or Podcast Recorder By:
LOVE THIS! Eats batteries up but works great and records with great sound. Easy to use SD card flexibility.

Perfect
Handy recorder By:
5 Stars, priced Right, works well.
Amazing tool for recordists By:
I had an original H4 for 10 years, and when one of my clients insisted on buying it (I had been loaning it to them), I upgraded to the new one. It works and sounds just as good, but has more flexibility in features. This is an amazing tool for the price, but it has more depth than meets the eye and has a bit of a learning curve, even in upgrading form the older model. (I am a pro engineer).
I've been wanting one of these for two years By:
I mean, what's left to say that hasn't been covered by every youtube review I've ever watched before I purchased. My only regret is not buying some kind of holster for it so I can walk around with it. I was way too excited for this to show up at my front door. And I'm already putting it to use.
Amazing By:
I'm no audio expert but this device has been absolutely amazing
Needed something easy to use starting off By:
My friends and I started getting into making youtube videos so I started buying gear I needed peice by peice. The one thing we noticed that put a damper on producing great quality videos was lack of amazing audio. So I did my research, read many articles that told me I needed a boom mic......that is true but $500+ for me is out of the question for now so I checked out cheaper options and i stumbled across some youtube videos that recommend this sound recorder, so I got one and was blown away at how amazing it is, I love this thing! Got an attachment for my camera and it captures audio so crisp and clear and is easy to use (when in doubt if you can't figure something out just youtube it). Another reason I got this was the support of XLR ports on it, so one day when I do get my boom mic I can plug it right in and capture audio not only from that mic but from the built in stereo mics on the unit itself. So do your research and see if this is what you are looking for, I am very glad I bought it.
Great for Filmakers, and YouTubers. By:
Absolutely amazing, if you’re an aspiring filmmaker, or YouTuber, than I highly recommend this. I like to use mine with an AT2020 XLR Microphone.
Five Stars By:
Everything as expected
We be to rap what key be to lock By:
Hands down one of the best multi track recorders. this product is so versatile can be used in many applications. Mainly used for a youtube audio recording.

  • Discreet, low-profile design

Might need to mount on top of stabilizer along with flash, etc., if used for H6. By:
Works well for my Zoom H6.
Love it! By:
Love this!
Great Product & Quality! By:
Works perfectly with my TASCAM DR-22WL! Really eliminate vibrations caused by walking around the TASCAM DR22WL.
Well made. By:
Yup, well made. Works fine.
Five Stars By:
Works great with my Zoom H1N.
Works! By:
Works as advertised.Considering moving up for even MORE isolation from the mount, but this is system alone is a vast improvement over directly mounting to the pole/camera.
Five Stars By:
Nice addition to my Zoom H6 to reduce floor-transferred noises.
Good Shock Mount By:
 Nothing wonky works good. Hard to find any other kind. Platform is large enough to accommodate a recorder like the DR05. Needs a drop in price but so far I don't see any other kind available. Worth the purchase so far. We'll see how it holds up long-term.
Nice to my Mic By:
Good as advertising
Five Stars By:
thanks
