XYH-6e Stereo Mic Capsule (Included)

The default capsule that comes with the H6essential, this adds two high-quality microphones in a X/Y stereo arrangement. This arrangement is most sensitive to audio directly in front while also capturing a clean stereo image.

The SSH-6e includes a highly-directional microphone to pick up sound in the center, as well as a bidirectional side mic to pick up sounds from the left and right. The mid-side stereo image is adjustable from mono to ultrawide stereo pickup. You can capture dialogue with the center mic, then mix in the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side mics.

EXH-6e Input Capsule

If you need more inputs, simply plug in the EXH-6e dual XLR-1/4" TRS combo capsule. This allows you to connect two additional microphones, instruments, or line-level sources.


Phantom power can be applied if you connect power to the USB-C port on the capsule. There is a 3.5mm jack for line- or mic-level input with plug-in power available for lavalier mics.
