  • Excerpt: Although the recorder is a bit too large to use with a lavier mic, it's sturdy cover and adjustable mic allow a starting film maker like myself to have options!

It's an excellent piece of kit for the price, but it comes with some caveats to be aware of.

  • Summary: Great construction and audio quality, and the value is fantastic for what you get in the box, but note: - There are no real audio editing functions. - Metronome does not keep in sync if you play from the middle of a track. To ensure sync when adding/rerecording you have use Punch-in and play from the beginning. Or, if it's a 4-track project, you could record a click track or beat from an external source.

Great Product

  • Excerpt: I used this for some short films I made and it worked great. The preamps are little less noisy than the Tascam I've used previously. The only thing I wish it had was an updated display and a dial to set levels, instead of buttons. I also wish it had a metal body for durability.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
  • Cons: Poor Quality Construction

Awesome

  • Excerpt: Just got this recorder and love it. It was a little confusing getting the audio from the zoom to my MacBook because the software that comes with the zoom is not compatible with the latest Mac iOS, and the last zoom I had automatically showed up on the desktop like an external drive. However, it wasn't that hard to figure out how transfer to audio.

Industry standard

  • Excerpt: A great all-purpose audio recorder. My biggest gripe is the interface is arcane and tough to learn. It does, however, have XLR inputs as well as mini-plugs, and the XLR combo connectors will also take a 1/4" plug, so you can track guitars and unbalanced pro mice if you need to. In it's price range, it's da bomb.

Extraordinary

  • Excerpt: The most glaring omission from this otherwise extraordinary recording device is analog inputs. Effective recording from analog sources (such as cassetttes, reel-to-reel )is extrememly difficult if not impossible. Otherwise, the H4n is a virtual recording studio that fits in the palm of your hand. I recently used it to record a Hammond organ recital and the results were virtually indistingushable from the original when played back on my home stereo.

  • Summary: The Zoom H4n Handy Recorder Bundle with 16GB SDHC Card, Headphones, Mini Tripod, and Hard Case is a good solution for videographers or podcasters who have a limited budget, but want a high-quality sound product. The Zoom H4n Handy Recorder is an industry leader in mobile recording. The H4n can record up to two channels of audio simultaneously. The display shows the gain levels of the incoming audio while showing a timecode.
