farid601's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good price / quality ratio"

Zoom H2
I use it for over 2 years, this is my first recording and I'm pretty satisfied.
What is the most valuable sue the H2 is very correct quality recordings I use it mainly during rehearsals of my group and the return of all instruments is really great! among its main flaws I cite a certain fragility of the housing (the station falls) plastic is really "cheap" and navigate the various menus and sub-programs is a bit laborious for my taste ...
I think the value for money is quite correct in view of the quality of enregistrements.Je think I probably remake the same choice if it were to be remade.

McREMY's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A gem of simplicity"

Zoom H2
And well I must say I was surprised by the simplicity of the device, easy to use and relatively accurate level sound quality.

The advantage is the config with 2 microphones microphones side of the unit are 90 ° or 120 °.

I recommend it, very convenient for all occasions.
However for use with AC power supply for battery autonomy very disappointing ...

oxas16's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" essential for progress"

Zoom H2
I use it for more than 2 years

I tried Zoom H4 but too expensive for my needs. There is little difference "to my ears between H2 and H4. Finish quality is considerable cons. The H4 is more complicated.

What I love: it can be used quickly without "taking head" with the manual. Even the bad computer to arrive. However, you can configure it easily if we take the trouble between several types of microphones (front or back or forward more surrond, wma or mp3, etc.
I find it very intuitive and most importantly, it offers recording quality unexpected for a small budget (for singles, not a model group with 4 or more instruments)
I used to accompany singing and listening to my faults and correct (when possible)
I make song recently and it helped me grow a lot (although I'm not terrible)
I continue to save regularly and for me, this is a must have accessory!!
If it breaks tomorrow I bought a pronto!
defects: cheap plastic, tiny screen, Trapes treated with caution, but given the quality!!

Mreg's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The Zoom H2 faithful companion"

Zoom H2
Purchased in 2007! There was no real equivalent to the price at that time. (MicroTrack was more expensive).
Still going strong in 2012!
The +: small, practical travel
The -: mic preamps

Be careful not to confuse the H2 and H 2 N (new model)!

I use the H2 to record atmospheres (choose 90 ° or 120 ° is handy but beware the doc made a mistake on the stereo as 90 ° angle stereo recording is actually larger than 120 ° !).
I also use it for music lessons, recordings in a hurry etc.
The problem of the red record button mentioned in the previous novel is painful. But can be set using the "automatic trigger" for registration. No need then to press it twice!
Do not rely directly use the Zoom H2 mic inputs as they blow too. on the other hand, one can use a preamp to use an external microphone as the input line of H2 is not blowing too. I tested and the first dual USB (ART preamp cheap) and the result is correct.

Given the current competition, I think 150 euros is the maximum price of H2. Beyond that, it's abuse.

jembozzo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" phenomenal and essential"

Zoom H2
I use it less than a year
studio and live recording

is the first micro digital multifunction I use

registration is neutral
with very good dynamic
and a lot of possibilities, 5:1, Stereo 120 ° or 90 °, or by mono
in wave, mp3 or various quality
of hours' recording
with two batteries

frankly, I do not even understand all the musicos do not have a
is a pure killing, and I'm zicos stage and studio for 23 years

to purchase, and again, again and again and especially to advise

the more I use it now to make my acoustic guitar made in the studio
(In fact, having tried many config, the best, cheapest and most effective is the zoom)
I put it in mono
I record in mono headset twice
Then I import into logic audio wave
and it is a pure killing

I think his guitars Matthieu Chedid def do with as

I recommend it 100 000 times
especially for the price

fredo 3's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" trs trs good sound and compact"

Zoom H2
I use depuis8 months and in many situations (sound in nature, birds, noise at night ect ..) and also for decision-talk voice. any cell with Intgr microphones, and I am satisfied with the trs taken and made. I also connected to the RCA outputs of the console (a soundcraft) to record a night and I found the sound is just right for a recorder as a small and virtually rglages .

it is certainly fragile, APRS some opinions, but by taking a few prcautions, it seems to keep going. For being protected I use a padded camera bag numrique

exprience with the same choice I would do without hesitation or may be the H4n

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Small but effective"

Zoom H2
I was looking for a digital recorder to make various statements sound without needing a computer at hand, mainly for the song (I can not register with me so I am forced to move away from isolating myself) but also for the field recording.

I hesitated between the H1 and H2, but it really seemed too fragile, I opted for the H2 that is affordable in light of its performance, it takes a lot of functions more or less interesting but the real plus is the possibility of varying configurations of microphones in different contexts.

Concretely, the device has 2X2 microphones that pick up sound in front and (or) the back, it opens up a lot of opportunities, especially when it comes to recording groups, Repeat '.

I mostly use the Config 2 microphones before (taken at 90 °) for 2 microphones and singing back (taken at 120 °) to capture ambient sound, the sound quality is impeccable for the price, we hear all kinds same details regarding the acquisition of sound in nature with low noise.

Management input level is fairly intuitive, it selects Low / Mid / High depending on the volume of the sound recording is then adjusted in finesse with the + / - depending on what the readout display (backlit).

Only defect of the device, the plastic shell is pretty cheap, the cover comes with the recorder is irrelevant, so I bought a silicone case which should enable the craft to survive a fall.

lucasrapaport's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simply great!"

Zoom H2
Everything is perfect: Very small, top quality recording level, 4 mics, direct export to mp3 or wav, three levels of recording (sound capture), very simple to understand.
One flaw: the sectoral cable is short.

Chut !'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Zoom H2
Just to reiterate very clearly that the converter input line of this gear are of exceptional quality (see articles in Sound Designer for example).
All this is really true! As long as you put a good mic preamp input and microphones that come with it, the results are absolutely remarkable. So of course if you like me more than fifty years, you must buy more glasses to read the instructions on the screen although a bit small, but trust in these recording conditions, it is worth all the top models end ...
