Overview

Don't let its size fool you. The H1 Handy Recorder has Zoom's renowned recording technology and studio-quality microphones in their easiest, most portable device ever.

Now Zoom recording technology is available to everyone. And with an infinite variety of applications, you'll want to take your H1 everywhere. From musical performances, songwriting sessions and rehearsals to seminars, conferences, journalism or capturing audio for video, the H1 gives you clean, clear stereo sound effortlessly.

What sets Zoom apart?
Like all Zoom recorders, the H1's onboard microphones are configured in an X/Y pattern, for stunning stereo imaging. Because both mics are arranged on the same axis, they are equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no phase shifting. The result is great stereo recordings with natural depth and accurate imaging.

Under your thumb
With its newly designed user interface, the H1 is also Zoom's easiest recorder to use. All its functions are at your fingertips, such as track marker, auto record, low cut filter, level and volume controls with on-board buttons No menus required.

Intuitive controls make it easy to capture the audio you need with ease. But Zoom still provides the versatility you've come to expect. So you get total recording format flexibility from 16-bit/44.1 kHz to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV, or MP3 from 48 kbps to 320 kbps and enough tools onboard to make impeccable recordings.

Everything you need to get started recording is included. Your H1 comes with an AA battery for 10 hours of operation and a 2 GB microSD card.

In addition, an H1 accessory package (APH-1) is also available (see sku # H70260) with an array of accessories that make your recordings even more pristine and easier to capture. The accessory kit includes a windscreen, AC adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, padded-shell case and a mic clip adapter.

Combining powerful recording capability with elegance and simplicity, the H1 Handy Recorder is our smallest, most affordable recorder ever.

Great recording devise

By Jose Rivera

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Zoom H1 Handy Recorder:

I was looking for something I could use to record some rehearsals and choir presentations. The saleswoman at the Jacksonville store offered this little gizmo as the one I intended to get was not available. I opened the box, popped in the provided battery and mim SD card, turned it on and I was recording. It has very simple controls. The quality of the recording is almost CD quality from what I have seen so far. It weight almost nothing. For the price I would strongly recommend this recorder.

Highly Impressed

By Michael Roberts

from Wilmington DE

Comments about Zoom H1 Handy Recorder:

I am one of those analog old guys so the words "digital recorder" made me a little cautious but I got over that real fast. I told the salesman at the Wilmington Delaware store that I wanted something that I could just aim at my source and push on and it would be ready to go. This gizmo is exactly that. A few minutes with the owners manual and I was recording. Not only is it simple to use the sound quality is incredible. Reproduction is much greater than I expected and jacked into my Kustom PA50 it produces MP3 like quality. Everyone who plays anything should have one, for this price it's a steal. Also spring a bit more for the accessory kit, it gives you a nice case, AC adaptor, mic stand adaptor and a really neat little stand.

As expected :)

By Jonas Cortes

from NY

Comments about Zoom H1 Handy Recorder:

Great product. I almost bought a tascam but after listening to a couple audio comparisons on youtube I decided to go for the Zoom, and I am not disappointed. I used it a couple times with live band in front of the stage, also recording drums from inside the cage, and recording through the mixer. Very impressive results.

            I bought this recorder to record music I am learning to play on the piano. I record from Utube and have my piano teacher play to the recorder and then I listen to her at home when practicing. Sounds better with headphones than through its own speaker. Works well for what I purchased it for.
