Works well but bad UI and very sensitive in wind

  • Excerpt: Can't beat this little thing for the price. It sounds good and is easy to use, that is, once you learn some of the shortcuts. For any functions beyond simply hitting record, it's not very intuitive. But the instructions are short so give them a look through.

Lacklustre Kit

  • Excerpt: The kit appealed because for the price of the H1 and the attenuator cable you additionally received a windbuster and hot shoe adapter (and headphones), both of which I would've needed to purchase separately. However the windbuster is monstrous.

  • Excerpt: Just as the title - I love the quality of the recording but if you drop it, expect it to get damaged so easily.

It's good for money... but not perfect

  • Excerpt: I use the mic for weddings. I mic the groom and the officiant with two of these. It's great as a "backup" recorder when used with a lav. My only complaint? The first syllable uttered is too hot. The auto gain dials it back... but not fast enough for the first syllable to be decent.

Not the best choice for portable mic

John Ricard, B&H Photo
15 July 2015
  • Excerpt: The unit is nice because it is very simple to operate and has a few stitches on the unit itself that allow you to change settings with having to use the menu. However, the Tascam DR-22WL is a much better choice.

Feels cheap Sounds Amazing

ar, Amazon
1 July 2015
  • Summary: Okay - this thing is pretty old by now, just so you know. Don't make the mistake I made and buy a brand new high end microSD card for this thing. It only takes up to 32gb, and it needs the slower sort. The body is made of what feels like cheap plastic that would break at the first dropping.

Praise for White H1 Recorder !

The Hallelujahman !, Amazon
16 June 2015
  • Summary: Hi praise for the H1 ! Love it - portable - clear sound - even when it fluctuates I can tone it down or up when needed - excellent ! I can now capture not only music, but my own Hallelujahman ! sound effects, character voices and comedy skits...and more as it creatively happens.

Not a Fan of H1

14 June 2015
  • Excerpt: I was disappointed in the build quality of this product. Lots of plastic that seemed quite flimsy. This product ONLY uses Micro SD and I'm not a fan of those at all. Additionally, the cover for the Micro SD card slot was so flimsy it was laughable. The sound quality was okay.
