Product Description

One size. Fits all. Introducing the H1 Handy Recorder. It?s our smallest recorder ever. But don?t let its size fool you. The H1 Handy Recorder has our renowned recording technology and studio-quality microphones in our easiest, most portable device ever. Now Zoom recording technology is available to everyone. And with an infinite variety of applications, you?ll want to take your H1 everywhere. From musical performances, songwriting sessions and rehearsals to seminars, conferences, journalism or capturing audio for video, the H1 gives you clean, clear stereo sound effortlessly. What sets us apart? Like all Zoom recorders, the H1?s onboard microphones are configured in an X/Y pattern, for stunning stereo imaging. Because both mics are arranged on the same axis, they are equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no phase shifting. The result is great stereo recordings with natural depth and accurate imaging. Under your thumb? With its newly designed user interface, the H1 is also our easiest recorder to use. All its functions are at your fingertips, such as track marker, auto record, low cut filter, level and volume controls with on-board buttons? No menus required! Intuitive controls make it easy to capture the audio you need with ease. But we still provide the versatility you?ve come to expect from Zoom. So you get total recording format flexibility from 16-bit/44.1 kHz to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV, or MP3 from 48 kbps to 320 kbps and enough tools onboard to make impeccable recordings. Secure your digital memories. The H1 records on microSD cards and comes with a 2GB microSD card. Using a 32GB microSDHC card allows over 50 hours of recording time at 16-bit/44.1 kHz. MicroSD cards were specifically designed for the ever-evolving mobile technology market. Approximately the size of a fingernail, the microSD card is a significant advance in technology and its size and capacity are a major reason why the H1 is able to deliver so much...

5.0 out of 5 stars Using ZoomH1 for Musical Recording 12 Feb 2011
By Jonny B
Zoom H 1

I record my Music (keyboard/Guitar/Vocals), and needed something to give the rich sound I was looking for.
Being on a budget I stumbled across the Zoom H1, saw the good reviews and got one.
This is a great piece of kit, very simple to use when you need to get an idea down straight away, and for recording at a high quality level its pretty astounding considering its size and price.
If your looking for an example then check my youtube channel, TheColdplayUnheard
There you will hear how it captures the voice and keyboard equally well, with its line in socket I could also copy old recordings from a 12 track recorder onto it with ease, bringing my old songs back to life with crystal clear sound.
Zoom H1 has options for what bitrate you wish to record at - giving the user the possibilty of stretching a 2GB card (included), to about 16 hours, beware that may compromise recording quality but the setting I use is fine and gives me hours of recording time.
For the reasons above I give it 5/5, as the pro's completely outway any con's.

But for those that are interested in any annoyances then I will tell you them below.
The fact the device works on 1 AA battery is great and you get a good couple of hours straight recording - obviously you would use it here and there which means a few days recording, but living in a world of Lithium rechargable batteries - you cant help but wonder why they didnt save that for the H2 - still its a minor gripe.
Second is being unable to name your tracks - they are literally labelled 01 02 03 04 etc .....

5.0 out of 5 stars A basic recorder with great audio quality 6 Oct 2010
By Robin
Verified Purchase
The H1 is very basic in terms of the functionality it offers, compared to other more expensive recorders on the market, but given its price that is hardly surprising. The H1 is probably unique in that it has a completely menu free user interface - everything you do with the recorder you do using controls located on the fascia. In some ways this is quite refreshing, particularly for anyone with previous battle experience when it comes to dealing with impenetrable layers of menus. However, this is primarily what limits its functionality. You can do all the basic things you need to e.g. setting sample/bit rates (from 24bit/96k down to Mp3), and adjusting recording and volume levels. Line in (mic), line out (headphone) sockets, delete, play, fast forward and reverse buttons are also on the edge of the fascia along with a recording button which is located on its own on the front of the fascia. The H1 offers one button recording using the recording button, which you also press to stop recording and return to the home screen. Recordings are made to a 2Gb micro SD card (supplied) and the recorder is powered by a single AA battery.

Physically the H1 is about 4.5 ins long, 1.3 ins wide and 0.8 ins deep. Many of its controls are located along the right edge of the recorder which makes for a tight fit - consequently the buttons are small. Anyone with very large fingers may struggle. The recorder is also very light and I would guess mostly made from plastic. I would not want to suggest that its build quality is poor but you might not want to step on it too often.

If you can access the small buttons the H1 is actually very easy to use.

Perfect. A "bare bones" version of the higher specification Zoom (SAMSON in the US) recorders.

If you accept this audio recorder for what it is - a very good quality pair of microphones and electronics, and with the minimum expenditure spent on everything else, with the intention of making the unit affordable - you will be very satisfied.

Do read the manual first before using the device. Really, do. Note that the sprung Power ON and OFF slider switch must be held for at least a second before taking effect. There is also a "HOLD" lock position.

The recorder and accessory kit arrived quickly and I rushed out to record some local street buskers. I placed the unit on the (accessory kit supplied) adjustable tripod stand, in a sheltered doorway, and with the (accessory kit supplied) windscreen ball attached.

Because the microphones are so sensitive, the stand is very useful for minimising handling noise. As with all sensitive microphones, unless you plan to use the unit only indoors, the (accessory kit supplied) windshield is also very useful.

The supplied 2GB microSD card gives almost two hours of recording at 48 kHz / 24 bit in WAV format. (Up to 96 kHz / 24 bit recording is possible, for very best quality.) The very lowest MP3 bit rate of 48 kbps affords over 92 hours of recording using the external power supply included with the accessory kit.

The microSD slot cover should be very gently prised open by lifting it slightly from the body of the unit along the lower edge of the cover. There is no hinge, the cover is attached by a relatively brittle, moulded toggle, fixed through a hole in the main body under the top right corner of the cover / flap.
