Turn your world into a world class recording studio with the H4N, the next level of portable recording from Zoom.

Its onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left mics on the same axis. This design ensures that the mics are always an equal distance from the sound source for perfect localization without phase shifting. Frequency response remains uniform throughout your recording. The result is great stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging every time.

Custom designed, onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. Our unique design lets you rotate each mic capsule from 90° (standard) to 120° (wide-angle) stereo for the ultimate versatility in any recording situation. Now your recordings can be richer than ever before.

Choose up to 24-bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for audio resolution that surpasses CD quality. Or, when maximum recording time with smaller file size is desired, select a variety of MP3 formats to produce smaller files suitable for web or e-mail distribution.

The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB. Unlike other media such as tape or discs, SD cards produce no mechanical noise, are not disturbed by vibrations and are readily available for your convenience.

Portable external sound recorder for capturing sound via built in microphone or the two XLR inputs.

Kit includes

  • 32GB SD Card
  • Windscreen
  • Protective Case
  • AA Batteries

Features

• Onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left mics on the same axis, for perfect loacalisation.
• Custom designed, onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°.
• Up to 24-bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for high audio resolution.
• The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB.
• Has a low-cut filter, the H4n effectively reduces unwanted background noise like wind or air-conditioning noise. A variety of compressors and limiters help to optimize the dynamic range while preventing distortion.
• Can record continuously for about 11 hours in 16-bit/44.1-kHz linear PCM format.
• Has  XLR/Phone connectors with phantom voltage source capability.
• Can record up to 4 channels using the onboard microphones.
• Can automatically record whenever sound above your designated level is detected.
• Has 2 second pre-record facility.
• The H4n supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) used in broadcasting and other professional A/V applications. Recorded files carry time stamp information and you can set markers (cue points) during recording or playback.
• Stereo input signal can be mixed down to mono to reduce unwanted sound source position shifts between right and left channels. Ideal for recording interviews.
• Built-in reference speaker .
• A large, 1.9 inch LCD screen with backlit graphic display shows all the tracking information.
• The H4n is a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device, meaning that files can be transferred to a computer at the highest rate available.
• Can record continuously for about six hours on a set of two IEC R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries.
