Stirring things right up, Zoom H3-VR really does put 360-audio in the palm of your hand.

Ambisonics Audio for VR?
The H3-VR’s 4-capsule Ambisonic mic captures precise 360-degr 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?
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.

Remote iOS 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
