Zoom H4n Pro Overview

The black Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder and Custom-Fit Waterproof Case Kit from B&H includes an H4n Pro recorder, a protective case, two AA batteries, and an SKB custom-fit iSeries waterproof case. It is well suited for transporting and protecting your H4n Pro recorder and accessories when working in the field, on live recordings, video, live broadcasts, and electronic news gathering projects.

The H4n Pro's onboard X/Y mics are equipped with the same preamps as the Zoom H5 and H6, for a detailed sound. With a noise-floor significantly lower than the original H4n, the unit delivers high-resolution audio up to 24-Bit/96 kHz. It offers expanded capabilities such as a built-in chromatic tuner, five-timbre metronome, built-in effects, an audio interface mode, and more. This version of the H4n Pro features a matte-black finish with a stylish, red record button for a discreet and professional look.

The military-standard SKB waterproof hard case is specially designed for the H4n recorder. Its interior foam is custom cut and includes pockets for the recorder, power supply, wind screens, memory cards, and other small accessories.

Zoom H4n Pro 4-Input / 4-Track Portable Handy Recorder with Onboard X/Y Mic Capsule (Black)

Ideal for guitarists, bassists, and vocalists looking to produce studio-quality tracks on a single travel-friendly device, the black Zoom H4n Portable Handheld Recorder with Onboard Stereo Microphone Capsule and versatile mic/line/instrument inputs lets you record up to four tracks of high-resolution audio in the palm of your hand. Plug in your favorite guitar and microphone, and enjoy unlimited overdubbing, amp simulation, and a slew of effects to develop your tracks into a polished mix.

Like other H-Series Handy recorders such as the H5 and H6, you can hold it in your hand, attach it to a mic stand or tripod, or mount it to a camera (shoe mount available separately). The H4n Pro packs a surprising array of features into a rugged rubberized body that's more than ready to meet the varied demands of songwriters, musicians, filmmakers, sound designers, content creators, and more.

From plentiful battery life to powerful audio processing functions, the H4n Pro is well equipped to handle anything from tracking live performances, demos, and complete songs, to recording sound effects, interviews, and meetings. It can supply phantom or plug-in power for condenser mics, or accepts direct connections from instruments such as a guitar, bass, or keyboard. No matter the source, selectable auto-recording and prerecording ensure that you'll never miss the start of a take.

Onboard Adjustable Stereo Microphone

Leave your external mics at home and travel light. The H4n Pro is outfitted with an onboard stereo microphone that provides clear, phase-accurate capture in two different X/Y positions—90° for a tight stereo image or 120° for a wider perspective. Just twist the capsules to their premarked positions to switch between the two configurations. With nothing more than the H4n Pro, you're set to record speech, practice sessions, concerts, or ambient and environmental sounds, even ear-rattling thunder up to 140 dB.

2-Channel Microphone/Line/Instrument Inputs

Equipped with two locking XLR-1/4" combo inputs and a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input, the H4n Pro can accommodate condenser microphones, line-level sources, or unbalanced instrument-level signals. Turn on 24 or 48 VDC phantom power to the XLR jacks, or 2.5V plug-in power to the mini jack. Whether you plan on plugging in a guitar and your favorite studio condenser mic to record a singer-songwriter, or feel like hooking up a lavalier mic for an interview, the H4n Pro's preamps (identical to those found in the H5 and H6) are ready to deliver low-noise (-120 dBu EIN) performance.

If you happen to setup external microphones in a mid-side configuration, the integrated MS decoder allows adjustment to the perceived width of the stereo image, which is beneficial for sound design, broadcasting, or general stereo-to-mono compatibility.

Record up to 4 Channels Live or Overdub Layers

The H4n Pro boasts multiple recording modes, and is capable of up to 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution. Record in stereo from the onboard mic or input jacks, or use 4CH mode to simultaneously record the onboard mic (or 3.5mm mic input) and two external sources via the XLR-1/4" jacks (great for getting the room sound and a stereo feed from a mixer). Alternatively, switch to MTR mode to utilize the H4n Pro as a 4-track studio complete with overdubbing, punch recording, and built-in effects. The H4n Pro's internal mixdown function lets you adjust levels and pans as you blend four tracks down to stereo.

SD-Card Recording and Audio Interface Functionality

Maximize portability by recording directly to an SD card (up to 2GB capacity) or SDHC card (up to 32GB capacity). A 4GB SDHC card yields approximately 380 minutes of 16-bit / 44.1 kHz stereo recording time using the BWF-compliant WAV format for uncompressed audio quality and industry-standard file compatibility. Note that media cards are available separately, and larger capacity cards may increase startup times.

Alternatively, use the H4n Pro as a 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface at up to 48 kHz. At 44.1 kHz, you'll have the option to use the built-in effects on input signals. The USB port also enables fast file transfer and firmware updates.

3.5mm Output to Connect to a Camera or Headphones

The 3.5mm line/headphone mini-jack output features a dedicated volume control, making it capable of feeding your camera/DSLR or a pair of headphones. For quick playback reference, a built-in monophonic speaker is provided.

Powered via AA Batteries or AC Adapter

Power the H4n Pro with the two included AA batteries, or plug it into a wall outlet with an AD-14 AC adapter (available separately). Alkaline batteries can keep the H4n Pro running for up to 10 hours in Stamina mode (built-in mics, 16-bit / 44.1 kHz, no headphones), while NiMH batteries extend recording time a bit further.

Rugged and Portable, Handheld or Mounted

The rubberized, ergonomic body lends itself naturally to handheld use. Should you need to mount it on a mic stand or tripod, a threaded hole on the back of the H4n Pro obviates the need for stand adapters. Obtain a hot shoe adapter (available separately) to attach the H4n Pro directly to a DSLR.

Extensive Audio Processing

The H4n Pro offers studio-grade effects and emulators to enhance your recordings. Choose from a variety of effects such as compression, limiting, reverb, delay, echo, modulation, a low-cut filter, and more. Normalize files for maximum gain, split them into smaller chunks, and insert up to 99 marks per recording.

There's an onboard metronome and tuner, along with dozens of amp models and effects crafted for guitar and bass. Additionally, you can loop playback and adjust pitch and speed independently, making the H4n Pro an ideal tool for phrase training.

Special Recording Functions

Stereo and 4CH modes offer selectable recording functions designed to prevent you from accidentally missing the start of a performance. By keeping the previous two seconds (one second at a 96 kHz sample rate) of audio whenever you press the record button, the prerecord option ensures that you'll never cut off the beginning of a great take. Auto-record can automatically start recording when a user-set sound level is detected, making it great for voice-activated recording.

Supports External Remote Control

Use the RC4 remote (available separately) to control the H4n Pro. It allows you to start and stop recording, fast-forward, and rewind through your files, switch the input source, and set recording/playback levels at a distance while eliminating handling noise.

Highly Visible Display

Day or night, view vital information such as audio levels, recording time, battery status, and more on the 1.9" monochrome backlit LCD. Transport controls and menu navigation, track, and input select buttons are presented nearby for access to all the H4n Pro's operations and functions.

Includes Audio Software

The H4n Pro comes with free download licenses for Steinberg's Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software, representing a complete audio production toolkit.

I purchased the Zoom h2n years ago from B&H, back when it was $100 bucks. I use that zoom for recording wild sound and narration voice in my closet. Over time, the h2n started recording popping noises during moments when it was silent. I purchased the h4n in hopes of eliminating the popping noises and it does! I've only used the stereo recording option (90 degrees) while recording narration and I've got to say, it sounds crisp and no pops. I look forward to hearing how it records when my friend plays guitar in his group and the microphones are set to 120 degrees. The batteries are holding up in stamina mode.

I purchased the H4n Pro to replace an earlier version of the same unit that I got in 2013 and inadvertently broke last year ( from my experience, as with any such device, it is recommended that you don't drop it on a tile floor). I use the recorder for solo acoustical guitar and vocals and it performs brilliantly. It's small size is perfect for travel, and comes with the same sturdy, plastic case my earlier version was supplied with. Happily, Zoom does not use the "rubberized" material for the recorder - that material, after just a few years, becomes sticky which, if the new version used the same material, I would have considered a different manufacturer.

It is as good as the old one I had. Which is not a compliment. I am not a sound guy so maybe I can't tell the difference in quality, otherwise it is exactly like my old one, with a new case.

I had trouble live streaming classical piano recitals from my home, specifically with quality non-attenuated audio. I consulted with a local professional who said this would work easily as an external mic with my computer, produce great sound (recording classical piano is problematic) and is generally useful outside of the live streaming. All true. It is more expensive than I thought I would pay for this project, but I now believe it is money very well spent.

Can I record 4 separate tracks to 4 separate files? I plan on hooking up 2 wireless lav mics and one shotgun mic on a boom pole. I'd like all 3 of those to record to separate files so I can adjust audio in a modular fashion in post. Is this possible or does it put all the channels into a single track?
Asked by: Joe T.
Yes, it can record separate tracks as separate files if you are in 4-track mode. However, in 4-track mode you can record only two external inputs, via the combo jacks, and the built-in mics. So, you will need custom cables to record two lavs and a boom. I do that quite a lot. For that I use the 3.5 mm jack input at the back. This directly feeds the mic-pres and if you set the level on your receiver to mic level input you can record very clean audio. The XLR input can then be used for the boom-mic.

Have they improved the processor and startup time over the original H4n? I couldn't stand waiting over 1 minute to power-up on my old model.
Asked by: Justin
The H4n Pro has improved mic preamps and a better rubberized body than the original H4n. The processor and startup times would still be the same as the original. For quicker start up times, it's recommended to use no larger than a 16GB SD card if possible.
