"Quiet, clean, accurate, great build quality."

Zoom H5Publié le 04/07/18 à 19:26
A very high quality recorder at a very fair price. Pre-amps are high quality and have plenty of power. Built in compression is pretty good. Has onboard editing features but the learning curve was a little high.
Build quality is excellent, seems very durable. Sound is perfect, have used with Procaster, RE20 and NGT4+ with very nice results.

One small negative is that unit uses batteries pretty fast, especially if you use phantom power.

"Great performances, but lack of ergonomics"

Zoom H5Publié le 03/02/16 à 10:50
Pros
The H5 is super powerful; great built-in mics, great preamps, and the gain control knobs are a great step up from the H4n.
I highly recommend it, it offers a great quality and can be used in almost any situation.

Cons
The only concerns that I have are about ergonomics. My main issue is about powering it; on batteries, it doesn't last long at all when phantom powering an external mic. And the only option to plug it to a power source is using the mini-USB port. This is a shame, because it can be very easily get unplugged, either when moving the Zoom around, or because of the weight of an USB/AC power adapter + extension cord.

My workaround

My workaround
I have found a way to power the Zoom that keeps things easy and handy; through power banks. They are cheap, lightweight and last forever (even when using phantom power). Here is a little explanation : http://rgalix.com/audio/power.png

" Nickel"

Quality equipment, versatility, multitrack, nothing to say.

I give an opinion rather to contradict the opinion of "slanderous" that would have done better to read the instructions before returning in toto! Indeed, the bytes can so quite normal, the bounce too.
Briefly before saying stupid things that can guide the choices of other users, read the instructions !!

Personally I have not bought these particular features, but more for the extra compact recording concert or conference, quality is more than adequate, I think for the price (229 Euros in Audiosolutions) c is a downright bargain!
XY capsule provided original offers a beautiful sonic accuracy, well-brilliant highs.

" Quality payable"

Zoom H5Publié le 11/16/14 à 09:22

I for one week.

Selection criteria:
Micro's good quality
XLR
Semi-professional quality
Used as a USB sound card
Compatible with my iPad
Maximum budget 300 euro

The H4n was not in stock in my favorite store, but the capsule demontable H5 is sexier
Only direct competitor is the Tascam dr-44 wl, but the wifi ... Not for me.
I've worked with Boss Micro Br and Zoom H1 for several months.
This is much higher, there is no picture.
Everything works well, the first test is inconclusive and breathless.
Surprise: even the headphone preamp is without breath, better than my sound card Tc Electronic!
Tip: To connect via USB to iPad, be sure to read the manual and activate......

Not yet enough experience to know if this is a repeat.
