Zoom H2n


Zoom H2n

Equipped with five built-in microphones, the Zoom H2n Handy recorder captures sounds with enhanced clarity and definition. Two of the microphones are arranged as an X/Y pair, and the rest are configured in an MS pattern, which allows for stereo or surround sound recording. This makes the H2n suitable for a wide array of applications, from recording live concerts and audio for YouTube videos to location videography.

When used with two alkaline AA batteries, this recorder offers over 20 hours of continuous use to ensure practicality and portability. This model is also compatible with AD-17 AC adapters to draw power from any regular wall socket and ensure continuous use for even longer periods.

The H2n recorder works with standard SD and SDHC cards to let you store up to 32 gigs of recorded sound and transfer it easily to your computer. You can also use the handy USB port to transfer digital data or use this recorder as a typical USB microphone. The package also includes the WaveLab LE software to help you edit the recorded audio and create impressive tracks.

Portable audio recorder with M/S & X/Y microphone configurations

The Zoom H2n is 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.

It features our five mic capsules onboard and offer four unique recording modes: Mid-Side (M/S) stereo, 90 degree X/Y stereo and 2-channel and 4-channel surround sound. It 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. The 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. 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
