    Zoom H2n Handheld Digital Recorder Product Description

    Representing a generation of portable recording, the H2n is Zoom's most innovative handheld recorder to date. They've packed groundbreaking features into an ultra-portable device that allows you to record pristine audio anywhere you go.

    From film and broadcast, to journalism, podcasting, musical performance, songwriting and rehearsal, the H2n provides amazing recording quality.

    The H2n features the best microphones yet and is the only portable recorder with five mic capsules onboard. This design enables the H2n to offer four unique recording modes: Mid-Side (MS) stereo, 90* X/Y stereo, 2-channel and 4-channel surround sound.

    The first portable Mid-Side recorder

    The H2n is the first handheld recorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording, a technique used for many years in film and broadcast, where ambiance and surrounding noise are crucial. Mid-Side recording combines a uni-directional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bi-directional Side mic that captures sound from your left and right. By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility over your recordings. If you record in RAW mode, you can even adjust the stereo width after recording.

    You still get X/Y...

    The H2n's onboard 90* 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 equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no phase shifting. The result is brilliant stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging.

    Completely surrounded

    Using the H2n's Mid-Side and X/Y mics together, you can create stunning 360* surround sound recordings. Choose between 2-channel mode, which combines the Mid-Side and X/Y mics, and 4-channel mode, which records two separate stereo files, allowing you even more post-production capability. No matter which mode you use, you'll get perfectly balanced, surround sound recordings.

    Streamline your recording experience

    The H2n is remarkably easy to use. With its recently designed user interface, critical controls are right at your fingertips and make studio-quality recording a breeze.

    The H2n also houses an arsenal of comprehensive functions, including Auto-Gain, a compressor/limiter, time stamping and more.

    Zoom's got you covered

    Never again will you have to worry about losing recorded data to unexpected errors. The H2n has you covered with its data recovery function. Whether you experience battery loss or an accidental power-down, this feature will automatically restore your data the next time the H2n is powered on.

    20 hours of battery life

    The H2n provides over 20 hours of continuous operation on just two standard AA alkaline batteries! This astonishing feature enhances the H2n's flexibility and convenience. In addition, the H2n can also operate using an AC adapter, which is included in the optional APH-2n Accessory Pack.

    Bigger and brighter

    The H2n's 1.8" backlit LCD display (128 x 64 resolution) provides crystal-clear monitoring and makes it simple to navigate all of the unit's functions.

    Turning to analog

    Digital volume controls offer too much or too little gain, with no middle ground. The H2n's Mic Gain wheel allows you to dial-in the perfect amount of gain for any given application.

    Play it back and listen...

    The H2n's built-in reference speaker lets you know your recordings have been captured. With its 1/8-inch stereo output, you can also playback your recordings on your home audio system or listen to your masterpiece using your favorite pair of headphones.

    Secure your memories

    The H2n uses SD/SDHC cards and can accommodate up to a 32GB SDHC card for over 50 hours of recording time using the 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV format. With 128kbps MP3 format, you get an incredible 555 hours of stereo recording. The H2n comes with a 2GB SD card to get you started.

    Transfer and edit at High-Speed

    Use the H2n's High-Speed USB 2.0 interface to transfer files to your Mac or PC. Once your recordings are on your computer, you can easily store, edit, playback and share your favorite creations. You can even use the H2n as a USB microphone, letting you record directly to your computer.

    Software included

    Steinberg's WaveLab LE 7 can be used for audio editing and professional-quality mastering. By using its precise waveform editing and high-quality processing, you can refine your recordings into finished works.

    Next generation

    No matter the application, the H2n brings the very best in stereo recording to a convenient, user-friendly package that fits in your pocket.
