The Zoom H2n Handy Recorder

Five microphones, four ways of recording

Zoom's H2n Handy Recorder is the only portable device to come with five built-in microphones and four different recording modes: X/Y, Mid-Side, 2-channel surround and 4-channel surround. The H2n can handle just about anything from live concert and rehearsal recording to location videography. It's also a great choice for generating lasting audio documents of important events like lectures, meetings, weddings, and parties.

  • Five built-in microphones and four recording modes: Mid-Side (MS) stereo, X/Y stereo, and both 2-channel and 4-channel surround
  • Records directly to SD and SDHC cards up to 32GB
  • Supports up to 24-bit/96kHz WAV audio as well as a variety of MP3 formats
  • Analog-type mic gain knob
  • Onboard effects, including compression/limiting and low-cut filtering, plus chromatic tuner and metronome
  • Auto Gain, Auto-record, and Pre-record features, plus Data Recovery function
  • Requires just two AA alkaline or NiMH rechargeable battery, with up to 20 hours of battery life

Convert and mix

The H2n allows you to easily convert WAV files to MP3 format, plus you can use its internal mixer to mix down four-channel surround files to stereo, with independent control over level and panning.


Flexible inputs and outputs

The H2n offers a variety of inputs and outputs for flexibility in recording.

There's a Line In jack that can accept two channels of mic- and/or line-level signals (including microphones requiring plug-in power), as well as a stereo line out / headphone jack with a dedicated volume control. There's even a built-in speaker for fast monitoring without the need to make any connections.

In addition, the H2n's USB port allows recorded files to be imported into computer editing software such as the supplied WaveLab LE. You can even use the H2n as a 2-in/2-out audio interface or as a USB microphone.


H2n Microphone configurations





X/Y recording provides a great way to cover a wide area while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition. The H2n's built-in X/Y microphone provides two matched unidirectional mic elements set at a 90 degree angle relative to one another.


The 'Mid' microphone element in the H2n's MS mic picks up signal coming from directly in front, while the 'Side' mics capture the sounds coming from the left and right. You can then adjust the relative level of each, either during recording or during post-production, to alter the stereo width while still maintaining perfect mono compatibility.


The H2n allows you to combine the signals from both the X/Y and MS microphones in order to create two- or four-channel surround sound recordings that capture everything you hear, not just those sounds coming from in front of you, but from all directions.


The Zoom range at Derringers represents a new generation of portable recording and studio solutions.
