Curtis i don't think this headset works with the pc. However anything you recorded on the iphone wit with something like recorder hq that could be saved to dropbox would work.

which software would I install on the iPhone to interact with this headset? Is there any way I could connect this to my PC as well and interact with audio editing software there?

THANKS!

Hi, Georgina.
Another option is something like the sennheiser ambio smart headset, https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-AMBEO-Smart-Headset-iOS/dp/B0744PC5J8/ref=asc_df_B0744PC5J8/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312026001792&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14690300091695391918&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9002059&hvtargid=pla-450898583753&psc=1

This works with your iphone and will make recordings in binaural stereo. Especially if you are recording something like a dragonboat race in which you are participating, a person listening to your recordings wearing headphones will think they are piloting the dragonboat. Binaural recordings give a very lifelike experience to the listener.
I agree with Dane in the sense that I think any iphone out there today will make as good a recording as the zoom h6 or h8. Also, depending on the iphone recording app you are using and the amount of storage space you have on your iphone, you can record at 48 kilohertz 24 kbps which is fine for high-quality recordings.
Also, if you put your phone in airplane mode with a full battery charge, you can get a whole day of recording off of one charge.
I wouldn't edit on the iphone, however. For that I would use some type of audio editing software on the mac or pc, of which there are many good options.

Hello,

To me it seems an exciting world. I don’t know what I will use things for until such time as I know what tools I have at my disposal. I have always made compromises and I accept that working with audio it is always making compromises. At the moment I just want to get a very nice sound as professional as I can at home and out and about. The Dragon-boat nationals are in October so got some time to play. While I redo my tutorial on DMR which sounds absolutely awful.

Yes, I am looking at stuff that could be overkill but such equipment is an investment so it is important to have room for growth. Rather than wanting something better 5 minutes after purchasing it.

Thanks, for your input. It is really making me think about how I get to my goals.

Hi,
Based on the description of the task at hand I’m wondering if its worth the bother using something like the Zoom recorders we’re discussing?
The H4N Pro, H6 etc are all multi track recorders and fine recorders they are.
You may consider using the iPhone or the Galaxy phone you have.
I know with the iPhone I use a very nice recording tool called Twisted Wave or the free TW Recorder.
Using the iPhone itself the recorder can record 48K Sampling. Rate in stereo which may be all that is required for a demo when using speech.
Adapters may be required for use of particular microphones. With my iPhone I use the Shure NV51 or NV88 microphones.
Amazon is a treasure trove for this sort of stuff so it might be worth spending a few minutes doing a few searches, doing some browsing and see what you come up with.

Hello Christopher,

I am a radio ham and I decided to do recordings to demonstrate how to use accessible tools to access a digital system called DMR. While my resources have been very much appreciated. I really hate them. So I had heard Garth on Audio Pizza instruct the listener how to use Reaper. I also discovered the resources by CAVI and I am working through that material.

I recently went to Barcelona to paddle for Preston Dragons. I would have loved to record parts of the dragon-boat festival. While no-one can take our memories away I would have loved a recording of that event.

Regards,

Hi Gena,

What do you plan to do with this stuff? You might not need a digital recorder.

Hello,

I am just started, currently I only have a Yeti that I have used for years and a dynamic ATR-2100, the beginner’s mic. I have got my focus on a AT-2035 but I need to be careful how much I am spending. But father Christmas might bring me a Cad E-100S. I am only looking at cardioid pattern at the moment. The Zoom would enable me to use the 2100 and be ready for any direction of growth I wish.

Thanks for the encouragement. I wondered when you make settings are they maintained each time you turn it on? Also when you change the batteries are the menu options held?

Thanks,

What kinda condencer do you have? I bought the H6 for the same reason. I have an Audio-Technica AT-8022 stereo mic. Comprized of 2 modded AT-4021s.

Hello All,

I wondered if anyone was using a good portable digital recorder? I like the idea of the Zoom H5 or 6 but I see that it is necessary to navigate menus. So I guess it’s not an option for me.

I require an XLR and phantom power for my mic. What are the experiences of others?

Thanks,
