Enjoy the new
new generation of portable recording, the H2n is Zoom’s
most innovative handheld recorder to date. We’ve packed groundbreaking
features into an ultra-portable device that allows you to record pristine
audio anywhere you go.
From film and
broadcast, to journalism, podcasting, musical performance, songwriting

New mics, new
The H2n features
our best microphones yet and is the only portable recorder with five
mic capsules onboard. This design enables the H2n to offer four unique
recording modes: Mid-Side (MS) stereo, 90° X/Y stereo, 2-channel and
4-channel surround sound.
The first portable
The H2n is the
first handheld recorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording, a technique
used for many years in film and broadcast, where ambiance and surrounding
noise are crucial. Mid-Side recording combines a uni-directional Mid
mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bi-directional
Side mic that captures sound from your left and right. By increasing
or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control
the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility
over your recordings. If you record in RAW mode, you can even adjust
the stereo width after recording.

The H2n’s onboard
90° X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left
mics on the same axis. This design ensures that the mics are always
equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no
phase shifting. The result is brilliant stereo recording with natural
depth and accurate imaging.
Using the H2n’s
Mid-Side and X/Y mics together, you can create stunning 360°
surround sound recordings. Choose between 2-channel mode, which combines
the Mid-Side and X/Y mics, and 4-channel mode, which records two separate
stereo files, allowing you even more post-production capability. No
matter which mode you use, you’ll get perfectly balanced, surround
