MIC WARS! The Zoom H1 X/Y Microphones vs. the Zoom H6 X/Y Microphones!  

The Zoom H1 is a self-contained recorder with a stereo XY condenser microphone. It can also be used as a USB microphone and audio interface. 

The Zoom H6 is a self-contained recorder, but you can also use it as a USB microphone and an audio interface. The XY stereo condenser mic capsule will be used for this video. 

We will test these microphones on voice for applications such as podcasts, voice-over, YouTube videos, etc… 

You will hear several samples from different distances. There are raw samples and processed samples. The processed samples use iZotope Nectar 2.
