The Zoom H4N Handy Recorder
The gold standard in portable recording
The rugged and reliable H4n has long been a favorite of videographers working on location, but is equally well-suited for live concert recording and music production.
It offers four tracks of simultaneous audio recording, a built-in X/Y stereo microphone, dual external inputs, and comprehensive multi-effects, making it the field recorder of choice for anyone looking for high-quality audio in a portable package.
- Four-tracks of simultaneous recording
- Records directly to SD and SDHC cards up to 32GB
- Built-in X/Y stereo mic, adjustable between 90˚ and 120˚
- Dual mic/line/instrument inputs with XLR/TRS combo connectors
- Up to 24-bit/96kHz audio in time-stamped BWF-compliant WAV or a variety of MP3 formats
- Requires just 2 AA alkaline or NiMH rechargeable batteries, with up to 11 hours of battery life
Great audio for your video
The H4n can be connected to any standard tripod or mic stand, or you can use Zoom's optional Hot Shoe adapter to mount it directly to your camera, making it an invaluable addition to any videographer's field kit.
Two paths to perfect stereo
The H4n provides two different ways of recording great-sounding stereo: X/Y and MS (Mid-Side).
The built-in X/Y microphone provides two matched unidirectional microphones. The angle of the two can easily be changed from 90 degrees for a tightly focused stereo image to 120 degrees for a wider image. X/Y is an excellent way to cover a wide area while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition, making the H4n ideal for all types of live stereo recording, such as location video shoots and live concerts.
The H4n also provides an onboard MS decoder so you can do MS recording using external microphones. This powerful technique allows you to adjust the width of the stereo image in postproduction while maintaining perfect mono compatibility, making it especially useful for film, video and television projects.
Ideal for music-making, too
The H4n transforms any environment into a home studio. Its ability to record up to four tracks simultaneously, along with powerful overdubbing and punch-in features, allows you to do high-quality recording—up to 24-bit/96kHz—wherever you go.
Onboard effects such as compression, limiting, reverb, and guitar and bass amp modeling enable you to turn your musical creations into studio-quality recordings. Onscreen controls allow easy mixdown to stereo or mono, and the H4n can even convert your finished song to an MP3 file for emailing and posting to your favorite social networking site.

Zoom H4nSP Handy Recorder
Top customer reviews
My friend that works in the movies industry recommended it and I'm glad I listened.
I use it for my hobby and for recording my kids, lectures, nature sounds, etc.
The quality of the sound recorded with its mics is fantastic, it is capable of producing movie like sounds like floor creeks, doors shutting, people steps.
It is full and rich of features. It really is a compact recording studio.
Visit YouTube and you will find tons of good reviews and excellent tutorials so you are not intimidated by its configuration options.
This machine is cool- lots of features on the machine like normalizing volume and reverb and compression. a tuner an metronome, too!
I've done a few tests but have not used it for production to date however, its responsive, easy to navigate and the audio recording tests I've done suggest it will be ideal for my video production purposes. It is a little bulky but I do like the screen size and the rugged exterior finish. I'm still working through the instructions but the inclusion of phantom power is a real plus. Headphone playback is accurate and its easy to navigate the file system.
