Zoom H1n overview

  • 1Description

Like its predecessor, the black H1n Handy Recorder from Zoom is an easy-to-use, versatile stereo digital audio recorder that fits into the palm of your hand. However, in this iteration, Zoom has incorporated several features to make operation even simpler.

Whereas the Zoom H1 featured a single record button on the front of the recorder and a whole array of buttons along the side designed for play/pause, rewind/fast forward, and diving into menus, the H1n features buttons where you can easily see them, on the front of the recorder. Now you can go from recording to pausing, and from stopping to navigating between tracks, all with your thumb. Also provided are four buttons above the record function that let you change the sample rate and resolution, apply a low-cut filter for mitigating rumble, turn the built-in limiter on and off, and enact auto-level, which automatically sets the gain for you.

The H1n is geared for musicians, journalists, podcasters, and more, recording WAV and MP3 files to meet your professional needs. The H1n has a stereo X/Y microphone configuration that captures a realistic stereo image. The unit records audio to microSD or microSDHC flash memory cards, supporting capacities up to 32GB. The H1n records WAV audio at rates up to 24-bit / 96 kHz, and MP3 audio at rates up to 320 kbps. The pocket-sized device runs on two AAA batteries, providing up to 10 hours of continuous operation.

A 3.5mm mic/line input lets you connect an external microphone or music player, while a 3.5mm headphone/line output lets you connect your favorite headphones or small external speakers. A high-speed USB 2.0 port allows you to easily transfer data to your Mac or Windows computer. The unit also functions as an audio interface, allowing you to record directly from the Zoom H1n to your favorite DAW. 2 AAA batteries are included.

    Zoom H1n reviews

    H1n Digital Handy Recorder (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved version of useful recorder. THe interface is much improved. Much more intuitive. A dial for volume control, easy to see and easy to use transport controls on the face. More info on the screen. More choices for bitrate/quality. Uses AAA instead of AA, which isn't important to me though now i have to carry two different sizes. Recording quality: I haven't done any kind of critical test yet. The old version was surprisingly good. Using the built-in stereo mic, I put it in the middle of a string quartet, or on a podium, or with a lapel mic, in the speaker's pocket. from what I know so far, I'd recommend it for the quality, useability and price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthy upgrade This is a mix that always goes in my bag whether I’m on a shoot or not. This version is clearly better than the previous model which I used and destroyed for years. The sound quality is noticeably better. The design is better too, I had to put gaff tape all over the precious version to keep buttons from moving around during recording but this is much more solid while still being light and cheap enough. Put a dead cat on it and it’s useful for all sorts of back up sound recordings. Also good for quick Audio Interface recording work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but Powerful I replaced a similar Sony recorder with this one and I am very happy with the sound quality and ease of use. I can set it to record automatically, or can set the recording levels manually. Both work very well. I've been using it on a daily basis capturing hour long voice recordings in a living room, with alternating video sound. Both are very clear. I switched from WAV to MP3 192 kps to save on space on the mircro SD card, and the recording fidelity is very, very good. Download the manual to check out all the features available: https://www.zoom.co.jp/sites/default/files/products/downloads/pdfs/E_H1n_0.pdf I highly recommend this unit, and the price is right. I tried downloading the free steinberg software that comes with the unit, but could never get it to work. They did not even reply to my request for assistance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little recorder I use this as a 'back up' mic by leaving it on the podium during live speeches. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the audio sounded. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent, lightweight recorder, ideal for weddings I wish I'd bought this instead of the Tascam DR 40 Wifi.� The Zoom H1n is a great little recorder for weddings and events. I usually put it on the wedding high table or somewhere as a backup.� It picks up sounds really well and is a great backup for the H4N Pro it's big brother.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recorder Seems OK But Downloading Software is a Bear I purchased the Zoom H1n as a higher quality recorder for videos. Haven't begun to test the recorders possibilities yet but it's fairly intuitive to use. I did cheat and watch a couple of youtube videos to speed up the learning curve. Steinberg software comes with the purchase but it's a laborious process. First you download the installer, using the two key codes that come with the Zoom recorder. Once the Steinberg downloader is installed, you download the actual software. You'll see about 20 icons for software...Zoom users only get Wavelab LE and Cubase LE. You'll be emailed a 2nd set of key codes for installation for those 2 programs. Before I downloaded the programs, I used audacity which worked great for my needs. Even though I have the other programs on there now, I'll probably still stick with Audacity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excelente sonido! Estaba buscando una grabadora para msica y esta es perfecta. Excelente sonido, programable para evitar distorsin de sonido y ruidos alrededor. La calidad en sonido es tan fidedigna que parece que la persona esta cantando al lado de uno. En relacin al manejo del equipo: su tamao es agradable; sus botones son muy pequeo y delicado, pueden mejorar esta parte, incluso iluminar el teclado o tener mayor protuberancia para mayor facilidad al tacto. Falta botn para adelantar o retrasar una parte o fraccin de la cancin, evitando tener que finalizar o empezar toda la cancin para captar un pedazo de la misma o marcar por segmentos. La pantalla tiene excelente iluminacin. Para el precio es excelente producto y calidad de sonido!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I love this recorder. Its only drawback for me is that the plastic case feels brittle. Otherwise, it's got everything you'd need for quick, clean recording.
