THE ZOOM H3-VRVR AUDIO, YOU'VE ARRIVED.

Whether you’re a game developer, filmmaker or musician, virtual reality is the undeniable future of content creation. While 360-video is exploding in popularity, the ability to easily create 360-audio has lagged behind…until now.

One-Stop VR Audio

The Zoom H3-VR virtual reality audio recorder is the complete solution for capturing and processing spatial audio for VR, AR and mixed-reality content. With a built-in Ambisonic mic, recorder and decoder, the H3-VR puts 360-audio in the palm of your hand.

A New Way to go from A to B

In the past, capturing VR audio required a dedicated Ambisonic mic, a separate recorder and a computer for encoding the audio from raw Ambisonics A format to VR-ready Ambisonics B format. Now, with the H3-VR, all of the encoding and decoding is done on board, saving time, money and effort at every step.

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.

 

Upgrade Your Game Experience

The slam of dungeon doors, growl of monsters or howl of the wind can make or break a player’s fantasy. With the ability to capture high-quality in-game audio, you can elevate your player’s experience to new levels. 

 

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’s advanced onboard limiter offers distortion-free signal at high volumes.
 
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 5 ounces (120g), the H3-VR is the perfect Ambisonics recorder to take on the go. And since H3-VR records directly to an SD card, there’s no need for external gear.
 
360º Post-Production Made Easy

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.

Product Q&A

No questions yet. Be the first to ask the question!

Ordering

Is this product in stock?
We try our best to have everything in stock, but sometimes items sell out faster than we can update the website, as this is a manual process. If this is the case we will call or email you and let you know if your order cannot be fulfilled, and what your options are as soon as possible. We have multiple warehouses around the country so the "in stock" and "out of stock" is an indication of if the item is able to be shipped from one of them, our store, or one of our distributors. Most of the time there is no difference in turn around depending where it is shipped from but if there are any delays we will contact you immediately. We do also ask if you plan on picking up an item, please contact us so we make sure it is in our store ready for you.

I want a certain product but I don't see it on your site, Why don't you have it!!!?
We have a HUGE store here in Newcastle (which we would love to see you in) and not every product we stock is online & vice versa, but if you don't see what you are after, give us a call or email and we will chase it down for you!

Is everything on your website in stock?
We try our best to have everything in stock, but sometimes items sell out faster than we can update the website, as this is a manual process. If this is the case we will call or email you and let you know if your order cannot be fulfilled, and what your options are as soon as possible.

Do all the guitars come set up & with strings?
They sure do! All the guitars are set up at the factory & often once in the country as well! Every guitar we sell is ready to play (after a quick tune of course) 

 

Price Match

Do you price match?
Yes we do! We will do our very best to match & beat any genuine Australian quote!
Just email us a link to the cheaper product and we will match or beat it for you (Prices valid for 48 hours) The Musos Corner Price Match option only applies when comparing identical products in the same condition, where payment is made in full by cash, eftpos or credit card. It is subject to verification and does not apply to ebayamerican or overseas sites (come on guys), global sounds, grey importers, bulk buy discounts or site licence prices apply or to prices of other sellers that are available for less than one week. Price Match does not apply if original price retailers are out of stock or if Musos Corner is out of stock of the product in question. That said, we will always endeavour to pass on the very best price we possibly can.

 

 

Payments

Pricing Policy
All of our prices are in Australian dollars (AUD) and include Australian GST (Goods and Services Tax). All transactions are processed in AUD.

In this industry our suppliers can often change their prices quickly and without notice. Sometimes the website or the store will not accurately represent these price changes and sometimes there may be genuine pricing errors due to either technical or human error. In these instances we are not bound by the information offered in error and may not be able to honor the incorrect price, but we will explain the error to you and do everything we can to pass on the best possible deal.

Do you guys Lay-by? 
We certainly do in store, for an online lay-by each one is selected upon its own merrits with a 50% Deposit if approved. For in store Lay-bys: 20% Deposit, followed by weekly or fortnightly payments for 8 weeks. If cancelled, a 20% of RRP Fee will incurr.

 

 

Freight

How do I know if my item ships Free?
Many products we stock have free shipping to certain locations.
Please put in your address into the freight calculator and if there is free freight there will be no charge for delivery. Items on ZipMoney, ZipPay, or Studio19 Finance may not be eligable for free delivery. We will contact you if this is the case.

Free Postage Details
Some items such as certain pedals and stomp boxes, accessories and effects may have free postage. This will go via the cheapest method. Courier/Express/Insurance/Registered Post would be extra. Please contact us.

Express Post
We can Express Post/Courier your items if necessary but additional charges may apply. Orders generally leave at 2:00pm daily so if you need an item ASAP, make sure it is ordered by 1pm (please call 1300 687 672) to ensure there is stock of the item and to get an estimated time of arrival. Express post is to capital / major cities only (for next day service). This service is for items under 5KG only!

How can I track my order?
Check your email and you will have been sent a tracking number, input the number into either Fastway CouriersStartrack or Australia Post's Track & Trace engine. If you have any problems, please call us and we will call the couriers on your behalf.

Do you take international orders?
Sorry, we do not take international orders, we only sell and ship around Mainland Australia & Tasmania. For remote & Island locations please contact us.

How much is shipping?
To work out a shipping cost, please go through the cart and our system will work out a freight price to your area.
If you think there may be an error, or want to clarify the price, you are welcome to contact us and we will work out the best shipping price for you.
There may be some exceptions for heavy or large items (over 25kg), remote locations or some regional areas. We will contact you if this problem arises prior to shipping the goods.

Do you offer freight insurance?
We certainly do, and highly recommend it as Australia is a big country. Insurance / Shipping protection is available and is only 1.5% of the value of the goods.

Can I pick my goods up in store?    
Of course! Unlike some stores, we do not charge for you to pick up in store. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so we can make sure your goods are ready. Orders that are left for over 1 week and not picked up will be returned to stock, unless other arrangements have been made. Valid ID will be required for picking up goods that have been paid for online or over the phone.

What if I am not home for the delivery?
IF you are not home, the driver will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot/post office or arrange a re-delivery. 
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.

What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier. 

Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.

Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.

I've been emailed a tracking number, how do I track it?
The number should look like Fastway FA0000001 or Startrack YTP0000 or Aus Post 111111, Simply go to the website of the company it was sent with (Fastway,Startrack ExpressAustralia Post) and trace it there.

Do i need to set up my product?
All guitars some fully set up ready to play (after a quick tuning). Banjos will need to be set up after delivery as they cannot be shipped set up unless they are bought with a case. Some products like piano stands require some basic assembly as they are flat packed for shipping.
