They are what they are, they deliver a certain level of quality, noticeable, or not noticeable, depending on what you’re recording,
The Zooms are very popular, but there are subtle differences between makes, I personally prefer my Tascam DR100 MK111, also, the Roland recorders, I hear a slight improvement in the sound of the on-board mic’s, over the Zoom models, but this is highly personal.
If you’re using external mic’s, makes no difference.
I would experiment, you still have the ability to use external mic’s, on the machines that provide XLR inputs, and phantom, so just give it a go, if you’re not happy, trade up to some decent mic’s.
Whatever you get, please budget for a decent windshield, these aren’t an option, they are an absolute necessity, get the best, Rycote, simple.
