Audio for Every Reality

  • Ambisonics Audio for VR
    - The H3-VR’s 4-capsule Ambisonic mic captures precise 360-degree VR audio recordings up to 24 bit/96 kHz. And without ever connecting to a computer, the onboard decoder allows you to export Ambisonics B-format files directly.
  • Binaural 3D Stereo
    - The H3-VR also records stereo binaural WAV files up to 24 bit/48 kHz. Stereo binaural provides a hyper-realistic spatial recording that enhances 2D productions with 3D audio.
  • Standard Stereo
    - The H3-VR even offers standard stereo recording for recordings that will be played out of speakers rather than headphones.
  • 5.1ch Surround for Video
    - Free to download, ZOOM Ambisonics Player software can easily convert Ambisonics audio to a 5.1ch surround file that is pre-aligned to the proper speakers, and is exported to your video or audio editor for syncing with standard video
  • Live Streaming 360
    - The H3-VR also enables you to live stream events in 360 degrees so that wherever your fans are, they’ll have access to the best seats in the house

Incredible Design
The H3-VR’s compact, conical design captures audio from multiple angles without getting in the way of the camera or the action. The Auto Mic Position and Level Detection make placing the H3-VR simple. Whether positioned upright, upside down, endfire or endfire inverted, the H3-VR automatically calibrates so your audio and video are already aligned for post.

Monitoring and Playback
Monitor your audio live in stereo binaural or use the H3-VR’s onboard Ambisonics Decoding to simulate your recorded 360-experience during playback.

Steaming and More
Perfect for live streaming, video conferencing, direct recording and more, the H3-VR’s audio interface mode turns it into a USB 360 mic for your computer or stereo mic for your iOS device.

Out of the Shot bit in Control
Staying out of the shot can be tricky when recording a 360-degree video, which is why the H3 Control App lets you remotely access transport controls, level settings, and metadata notes right from your iOS device.*
*Optional BTA-1 adapter required

Zoom Ambisonic Player
The H3-VR’s companion ZOOM Ambisonics Player software takes the work out of post-production by easily converting your Ambisonics files to Stereo, Binaural, 5.1ch surround and more. Play, trim, re-orientate and export your audio files in minutes.

Designed with Intentions:

  • OUTPUT VOLUME CONTROLS - The H3-VR's line out volume control lets you adjust the output volume to a DSLR camera, additional headphone, etc.
  • HEADPHONE JACK - A dedicated headphone jack allows for stereo binaural monitoring of your audio while recording.
  • DYNAMIC DISPLAY - A directionally-responsive LCD screen provides a bright, clear display even when upside-down.
  • TRANSPORT CONTROLS - The Home, Play/Pause, Forward, Reverse and Menu buttons are positioned for quick access.
  • POWER/HOLD BUTTON - Lock your settings on the H3-VR while recording using the unit's Hold function.
  • PRECISE INTERNAL CLOCK - The H3-VR's highly accurate internal clock with 0.5 ppm discrepancy reduces audio/visual drift.
  • SLATE TONE / SOUND MARKER - Using the slate tone enables you to easily calibrate the H3-VR and camera audio levels. Use the sound marker to output a tone when recording starts to make syncing audio and video easy.
  • BUILT-IN LIMITER - The H3-VR features a built-in limiter to prevent clipping and distortion during your most dynamic moments.
  • LOW CUT FILTER - The H3-VR's adjustable low cut filter removes unwanted low-end frequencies.
  • INPUT VOLUME GAIN - With the single-knob gain control, you can easily adjust the gains of all four mic capsules simultaneously for accurate, balanced 360-degree audio.
  • POWER OPTIONS - Two AA batteries can power the H3-VR for over 11 hours. For longer shoots, the H3-VR can also use portable USB batteries or be plugged in via an AC adapter.
  • 3.5MM LINE OUT - The H3-VR fits right in with your existing gear, featuring a dedicated line out for a wide range of 360 cameras or other external devices.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT/PORTABLE DESIGN - Weighing less 120g, the H3-VR is the perfect Ambisonics recorder to take on the go. Since H3-VR records directly to an SD card, there's no need for external gear.
