Zoom introduces the APH-2n as the official optional accessory package for the H2n Handy Recorder. The APH-2n features a variety of accessories that make it easier for you to capture your recordings. The kit includes a wired remote control with an extension cable, windscreen, AC adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, padded-shell case and mic clip adapter.
If you think your H2n is handy now, wait until you accessorize with the APH-2n accessory package.
Wired Remote for Easy Control
The APH-2n's wired remote can be used to start, stop and pause recordings, as well as to add marks. It's also useful in preventing handling noise.
Microphone Windscreen for Noise Reduction
Its windscreen will reduce the occurrence of wind, breath sounds and popping noises in your recordings, as well as keep the H2n's five mic capsules clean.
AC Adapter with USB Port
Using the package's USB connector type AC adapter to charge your H1 is easy and convenient. The included USB cable enables you to connect your H1 to any Mac or PC computer for rapid file transfer, editing, playback and sharing, as well as to use it as a USB microphone for recording directly to your computer. When you're not near your computer, simply plug the USB cable into the AC adapter's USB port and charge your H1 recorder with wall power.
Adjustable Tripod Stand
The APH-2n's adjustable tripod stand is compatible with the H2n's fixed tripod mount, making the recorder versatile in a variety of stationary functions. The tripod adjusts for height up and down with a simple twist knob.
Padded Shell Case
Utilize the kit's padded-shell case to protect our most innovative recorder ever. Featuring dual zippers and a Nylon carrying strap, it's an easy way to transport your Zoom H2n recorder.
Mic Clip Adapter
Lastly, the APH-2n provides a mic clip adapter allowing your H2n to be easily attached to any standard mic stand. Take your H2n anywhere and be ready for quick setup with the ability to work with virtually any stand.
Top customer reviews
For me, the most useful item was the carry case. It is well made and well fitted to the H2n. I ordered the H2n and accessory pack together. The H2n went into the case as soon as I opened everything. It is a semi-rigid case, more than a cloth bag but not quite an Otterbox.
The next most useful item is the windscreen. This one is sized and designed for the H2n. For example, the windscreen cavity is sized to fit over the microphones and there are relief cuts on the side of the windscreen to access the control buttons on the H2n.
The tripod can serve multiple uses with not only the H2n but small cameras, etc.
The remote could come in handy, however given the memory capacity it may be better just to start recording and leave it record to the end. That way, one would not risk forgetting to start recording again after stopping.
The extension cord seems of limited usefulness. The recorder needs to be near the sound source. How often would someone be so far removed from the recorder and sound source that an extension cord to the remote is needed?
The USB cord is just like the half dozen or so I already have. Although, with the added cords, one can leave one at a workstation, put one in a computer case, put one in the camera bag, etc. Likewise, the AC adapter will likely see service for items other than the H2n.
Least useful to me is the mic clip adapter only because I don't have a mic clip to adapt to.
As I mentioned, the utility of the items will vary by each person's workflow. For me, I run the recorder on batteries and stay in close proximity to it while recording. Other folks may need AC power and remote control. This package can it all.
One of the main things I was looking for here was the screw-on mic handle. Despite expectations, it turns out it's actually much too small to fit into a standard sized "friction" mic clip. It might fit into clamp style clips or ones made for shotgun mics, but not mine. The width at its thickest point is one inch and no more.
Another thing I got this pack for is the case. It doesn't offer a lot of protection but it fits well and will protect from scratches and certainly dust. My hope was that it would have a loop to fit on a belt and thankfully it does. Unfortunately I found the simple bulkiness of it makes it quite uncomfortable to carry there, which ruined my thoughts of just carrying the thing around wherever I go. It's not a poor design but just kind of the nature of the thing. If you have a bag or backpack you might be able to fasten it on a strap there, but then you could probably just stuff it in a pocket just as well. One thing that I will give credit for is that while fastened to a belt, the case's clamshell design opens very neatly and conveniently due to a pair of straps that suspend the recorder right where you can grab it, with little chance of it falling out.
I haven't made use of the other items yet, but from what I hear the foam-style windscreens work somewhat but not as well as the furry kind (so if you're recording outdoors I'd look for one of those), and the remote I plan to make use of but with limited controls and the small size of the screen of course you'll still need to access the recorder directly for most functions.
I just want to warn you all on how fragile and flimsy the remote extension
cable is. I was using it at a recent string quartet recording session and the cable
accidentally got caught underneath one of the music stands. Someone unaware
moved the music stand slightly, and the flimsy cable was spliced open. I wish
they would just provide a thicker safer cable so this would not have happened.
I can still use the remote itself, but it sure was handy having the extension cable
so I could move the remote pretty far away from the recorder. Now I'm forced to
go over to the remote or the record button on the machine to start recordings. I
haven't had much success finding a replacement cable, so if anyone knows how,
that would be much appreciated! It's hard to find a 2.5 mm to 2.5 mm male to female
3 ring accommodating audio cable.
Otherwise I've been very pleased with the accessory pack. I'm trying to be extremely
careful when screwing the tripod on and off of the Zoom H2n, as I'm worried about
the threads easily stripping. Having the tripod feature is very helpful!
I'd recommend getting this accessory pack to use with the H2n to make things easier for
your recordings. I'm saving big $ on using A/C instead of batteries, so am happy about
