    Bought last year Thomann (I recommend), and I use it to record all types of music.
    I tried templates for all types of media: tape, files, mini-disc ....
    The quality of this one is really good: all sounds are clear, it is recognized particularly well recorded music instruments (compared with those for which all sounds like ...) and no noise. In addition I use the configuration "concert" with which I record concerts on stage WITHOUT CA SATURATED! Only "downside" you just add 3 decibels lower on Audacity when recording vacuum. To all the circumstances of recording, his first attack must also be reduced, but it is something reversible, so a problem circumvented.

To all the circumstances of recording, his first attack must also be reduced, but it is something reversible, so a problem circumvented.
    When recording goes digital only in the case of electronic or compressed music, recording is done without compression (advantage or disadvantage? This is relative).
    A note also of course a wide range of configurations. Wav and. Mp3 for my part I record maximum. Wav to mp3 and public performance 320 or 128 for private performance.

    Five microphones are convenient, the "expansion" left-right is adjustable according to the desires and can also record with 4 Channels.

    The price / quality ratio is good, especially if you know where to buy. In Thomannn is a more affordable creature, a little less in Fnac.

    If I davais choice again I would. I do not think it happens because the machine is solid. However, the miniSD-SD adapter is already trapped inside the mine, so take a normal SD and everything will be fine.

    Hoping you have rendered service

    After two years of use .. always happy with the toy.

    First dictaphone that I acquired. Compared options with Olympus friends and this one seemed the most comprehensive integrated with 4 capsules for up to 4-channel recordings.

    Possibility of selecting up to 4 channels of records "Surround". Settings before share and rear .... Great versatility!

    Money "honest". The plastic is a little cheap. The options are great! - The accessory pack could be understood.

    I would do this choice without hesitation! Gone with the lil interrieur that exterrieur ideally entails.

    I acquired the zoom there is not too long gift I can not judge over time, and I had that microphone nomad since he met me immediately .
    Well, big plus for the quality of sound (to save a concert or rehearsal, it's just giant!), The mobile side I record when I want, it's great, the price for that quality is really good! In short it is a 9/10!
  • good quality / price ratio, compact

    I was able to acquire new, but no guarantee therefore cheaper.

    I also have a h4n less compact.
    What I find great is recording fast as possible in 4 channels. And I especially love the way mid / side (unfortunately not available in 4 channels). This sets the stereo width afterwards. For me it is very useful for recording such sounds brook, where the width change much.

    The recording quality is ok for the price. Compared to h4n there quite breath more (it can be reduced in software). ...

  • great machine for the price

    I use two stereo channels to for interviews, great result.
    I use a 4-channel surround soundtracks for documentaries, a handful or a pole.
    files are superb.

    would have paid a fortune as good machine and easy to use there are 5 or 6 years.

    I had a h4 before, I was less happy with the microphone.

    not hesitate one second, the accessory kit is also good (handle and ricotta).

    Very nice little extra recorder considering the autonomy report quality space.
    It certainly does not need to ask him to replace a pair of good mics and preamps convertos + good, but the sound is very honorable.
    Another plus: the ability to record in taking Xy + mic / line (2pistes stereo)

    For me to Zoom H2 corrected the problems on several points:
    1. Autonomy. The H2 had a range of about 3 hours. Cella was not enough for my use. Here, the H2n announces 20h with alkaline batteries. I was skeptical ... So I tried with 2700mAh Rechargeable Battery Sony CycleEnergy Ni-mh. I let it run until all batteries ... after more than 28h! When 3 bars tee "moin battery level are missing, he continued to record, but the backlight was no longer active. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised! Congratulations Zoom!
    2. Keylock. On H2 it was not possible to lock the keys. Especially when handling that can be pressed inadvertently. Well, they add a lock (HOLD) .. thank you
    3. Screen size. I board not a good view on the H2 and it was a hassle because screen too small ... and although they put on a bigger screen on H2n ... thank you again!
    4. Keys. H2 on the keys are too small and convenient to use. They chose another solution with a handy knob (as on the H4). So it's easy to navigate the menus. thank you
    5. Recording time. The H2 was limited by memory card. They are then given the opportunity to climb up the 32Gb H2N. It provides more than 200 hours in mp3 320Kb! ample! thank you
    6. Gain adjustment. Before the gain was a 3 position switch! Now they put a wheel on the side, good idea! thank you
    7. Listen. On H2 it was impossible to listen to the recordings without headphones. So they built a small speaker. This is not the best but troubleshoots well! thank you
    8. Remote. The H2 had no possibility to connect a. But this new opportunity. However, it is not provided with and have to buy the accessory kit

    LES - now:
    1. Weight: The h2n is heavier than the H2 ... I do not mind because remains compact, but ...
    2. Size: the H2n is larger than the H2 .. I do not mind because not much more ..
    3. The batteries are valve can still practice open ...
    5. The H2 has an external power supply (AC adapter) supplied with. The H2n any (life via USB adapter) but you have to buy the accessory kit ...
    4. uhh ... yes to the principal: the accessories are sold separately which brings the total price to about 200 euros! On H2, they were provided with! damage.

    CONCLUSION: Zoom listened to its customers and corrected blackheads H2. This has really become an excellent product for the price! I do not regret my purchase, it is a product that does what is asked.

  • Not to shabby, could be better

    Zoom H2nPublié le 12/05/12 à 00:12
    I really like this version of the H2n. I've used the 1st model which was good but this one is a lot better sounding in my opinion. I love the fact that there are different mic modes to choose from, this allows the user to get creative and really capture some interesting sounds before editing in post.

    Before purchasing this H2n or the original version I had tried a few different ones from Tascam as wells Zoom's H4n (another good field recorder). In my opinion the H2n sounds pretty clean, there is a little noise in it, but you can't avoid that will lower end recorders.

    I think it's priced reasonably fair for the quality you get from the mics on board.

    I wish it had a regular field......

    I think it's priced reasonably fair for the quality you get from the mics on board.

    I wish it had a regular field recorder's look rather than that of a condenser mic, but that's just personal perference.

    If I were to start out fresh, looking for a good priced all purpose mic:

    Field recording (amb sounds)
    podcasting
    studio condenser
    voice overs (basic)

    I may go with the H2n, it has some great features, the mics sound really good, simple to use and the build quality is a tad bit better than the H1N Zoom (both are units have plastic builds)

    If you're planning on doing any outside field recording I would strongly suggest purchasing a fury head. This is very similar to a wind screen or wind cutter. They look very similar to the hair found on the old school troll toys.

    This is going to cut a lot of the wind you run into thus giving you better quality sound.

    I'd also experiment with recording the same sound with the each mic option this way you can really control the dynamics of the sound once you're in post. This one main advantage the H2n has over most of the other portable recorders out there.

    I gave this record a 6 overall because for the price it should include XLR input like many of the other recorders in it's price range.

    All in all it's not bad for the money

    Ps be careful of unit noise, make sure all recorded sounds are above the floor noise for best possible recordings

    The obvious thing to like about Zooms' H2n is having a good quality recording with minimal fuss. The H2n is ideal for recording live shows or for just recording some ideas quickly at practice or on the go.
    For the price vs. value, I would say that it is just right. You get exactly what you pay for with this item, perhaps even a bit more.
    The sound quality of the H2n is quite good when compared against many other handheld, condenser mic equiped models offered by Zooms' competitors. The mics Zoom uses are very well balanced and very sensitive and of overall very good quality. I've used this in a variety of "live" situations from very quiet shows to ampitheatre shows to indoor rock shows.......

    The sound quality of the H2n is quite good when compared against many other handheld, condenser mic equiped models offered by Zooms' competitors. The mics Zoom uses are very well balanced and very sensitive and of overall very good quality. I've used this in a variety of "live" situations from very quiet shows to ampitheatre shows to indoor rock shows. The H2n always performs well provided that you take the time to familiarize yoursef with the onboard effects and ensure that you are not clipping. Personally, I would not recomend using any of the built in limiters or compressers etc. If you have a good DAW to transfer the recorded files into then your best bet is to just record it dry and do your eq'ing/mastering later with your good monitors and in a controlled environment. Also keep in mind that the H2n's condenser mics are very sensitive to handling noise and or vibration noise from being set on a hard surface. You can easily ruin a recording of a great live show by setting it on a wooden railing without some sort of padding or something underneath, the optional stand is nice. Also, keep in mind how much internal storage space you have, the options of choosing between different sampling rates and or bit depths is fantastic, but you can use that space up quicker than you may expect if you insist on recording at the highest quality. On a lower note, the proprietary file system is a bit odd, once you get used to it it's no big deal but you'll see what I mean.
    I've used a ton of handheld recording devices over the years from microcassette all the way to fully digital and I have to assure you that the H2n is a godsend for the applications that it is best suited for. I would certainly purchase the H2n again if necessary or another model from Zoom. I've used all of their H series recorders and have gotten consistently good results.

    Zoom H2nPublié le 11/01/12 à 23:13
    I have used a few different handheld recorders like the H2n. The difference between them and the H2n is that it has a much better sounding quality. Sometimes when recording things on the fly, it is not just about recording it but recording it at great quality to playback later. I carry my H2n around with me pretty much at all times now because I never know when I may have a melody in my head that I want to hum out in it or some lyrics that I might want to say so I can complete the project later. The H2n is like having a high quality microphone and recording program on me at all times. It has 5 microphone capsules in it and can record in 360 degree surround.

    The pickup patter of the H2n is made to handle any type of recording situation you might have. I have even recorded instruments with it live and then used that to dump into my DAW to master the sound of what I have recorded. All musicians and artist need to have a recorder handy like how a photographer always has a camera on him. You just never know when you might need your H2n.
    One of the great features of the H2n is a recovery mode, just in case you lose power you can still recover what you where recording on the H2n. You can get up to 50 hours of recording time because it can take up to a 32GB SD card. Then you can just plug the H2n up to your computer via USB and get all of your audio recordings right off of it in no time to your computer. You can use it with any computer that has a USB 2.0 input slot and with any system. There are no installations involved when using the H2n. It is plug and play.
