Representing the next level of professional recording performance, the H4n delivers superior audio quality and dramatically improves the user experience. Zoom's most sophisticated handheld recorder to date will amaze, no matter the application.
Unique X/Y mic design captures perfect stereo images
The H4n's onboard 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 with no phase shifting. Frequency response remains uniform throughout your recording. The result is great stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging every time.
The mics also adjust for variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. Our unique design lets you rotate each mic capsule from 90° (standard) to 120° (wide-angle) stereo for the ultimate versatility in any recording situation.
Why four channels are better than two.
Everyone knows that proper miking is essential to making a great recording. The H4n is the only handheld recorder that allows you to record on four channels simultaneously by using its onboard mics with either external mics or direct inputs. You can then use its built-in mixer to blend the channels for perfectly balanced recordings. Now your recordings can be richer than ever before.
Or, to get a great recording of a live performance, use the H4n's onboard mics to get a room mix while simultaneously recording a stereo mix from the mixing board for a live recording that is easily one of the best you've ever heard.
And for media and filmmakers, the H4n makes it easy to record "high definition" audio at 24-bit/48kHz with booms, handhelds or lavaliers while gathering atmospheric audio with the onboard mics. The H4n also supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) so your recorded files carry time stamp information. You can even set markers (cue points) during recording or playback.
The H4n is the epitome of sophistication made simple. For anyone who needs professional recording capability with extraordinary versatility, the H4n will give you the ability to capture everything with the clarity and resolution previously found only in the world's finest recording studios. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to make world-class recordings, wherever you are in the world.

Bought this with high hopes and it still surprises me. I've used it fror almost all its worth to the exception of the meter mode. I have no use for that but it seems like a great little feature. Where this thing shines is the microphones. They are superb. I've recorded guitars, vocals, a double bass, mandolins, violins, and overheads for drums. Seriously great sound! I was blown away! quick set up as well and for such a little device very versatile. Another note worthy thing if your considering purchasing this, when i got it i thought it would take some time to learn to work it. I expected along confusing manual full of back tracking and review. NOPE! Simple and clear directions! they even have little thumbnails of the buttons used in the steps. I had it working and testing sound out in less then an hour. Once i had more sources to test it on and spent more time with it using the different features improved of course but still its got a very quick learning curve. Awesome device. If mine breaks Im definitely buying another. At that point i would consider trying the H6 but that might be overkill for my purposes. Either way cant express it enough, if you want a portable recorder with great sound and versatility this is it!
I just got my H4N and I love it. I don't normally write reviews but I had to because I have really been pleased with the performance. I really like that fact that it has plug-ins for instruments or XLR mics (located on the bottom of the unit). The other cool thing is a small handle that can be screwed into the unit. The handle is designed to fit mic stand mics holders. The sound is very good and the manual is easy to follow. The unit is also simple to operate. Its a little more expensive that some units but its worth it in my opinion.
