    New Top-Brand Gear From An Authorized US Dealer

    You get top-brand gear, new from the factory, from an authorized US dealer. Our products are shipped from the vendor to our warehouse, and then from the warehouse to you. There is no detour through a retail store, where the boxes are opened, the products put on display, and then sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you are comparing new gear from authorized US dealers. 

    Special Opportunities: When It's Not New, We Tell You

    We occasionally have opportunities to buy B-stock merchandise to offer at special discounts. We also sometimes get returns in less than perfect condition. Sometimes we will offer these products to you - but we always identify it clearly as such using the classifications below. So unless it says otherwise, it's new from the factory.

    Important Guarantee: Your 100% Satisfaction

    Regardless of the condition described on our site, what you should remember is that if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you may return it (though exceptions apply for some products). Of course, if you know you will only be happy if a product is 100% cosmetically perfect, then you shouldn't order B-Stock or Blemished merchandise - it's just not a good gamble. And if you will only be happy if a product has never been touched by another human, well then the Resealed products aren't a good choice for you. But if you are looking for even more impressive values than our already-low prices, then these options will be very attractive when available.

    These are our best descriptions of the quality and condition of this merchandise. Because of the highly efficient, automated nature of our warehouse, and the high volume of products we stock and ship, there is no way for us to provide any additional detail on the condition of any individual item. Just remember our 100% satisfaction guarantee!

    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.

    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.
