5.0 out of 5 stars Zoom H2n - worth every penny 21 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Quite simply a superb recording device. The sound quality is, as one of my clients commented, "...better than hearing it in the room!"

It's light enough to fit on the end of a boom (for which you will want the accessory pack with the mic clip adapter/hand grip attachment), and is very quick and simple to use.

I record primarily indoors with the XY stereo mics, and have found that once you get the right balance with the mic gain (and I do this using headphones in the line out) you can get the desired amount of recording volume, while eliminating background noise and all hiss). The closer you can get the voice to the mics, the lower the mic gain needs to be, so a boom and a pop screen might be handy (but are not essential by any means).

Outdoors it's just as good. I have the H2n Accessory Pack, and would say that the mic clip adapter/hand grip and windscreen are a good buy owing to the tremendous mic sensitivity. I have found that I can hear things using the mic and phones that I can't otherwise hear. Again, the mic gain comes in handy when eliminating unwanted background noise and focusing in on just what you want to record.

I bought an additional 8GB SDHC card that gives just under 4 hours of recording at top quality. The included 2GB Kingston SD card is fine if you need less.

As an aside, and this in no way impacts the quality of this fantastic recording device, I found that the free bundled Wavelab LE7 software is a bit of a headache to register, but hey, it's free.

Hell yes, buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Zoom H2n 15 Oct 2011
This is an excellent product that I have been waiting for some time, I've looked for an easy to use tool for making draft recordings and song ideas. It is a great tool for just such undertakings, great for making recordings on the fly of ideas and test driving new songs. Easy to use with a useful set of tools ie Tuner, metronome, the quality of the recording with a four varieties of microphones setups provide an amazing quality, the recordings are of a high quality. Playback it simple and the 2gb SD disc provides ample room to start with.

The access to menus etc is straight forward but the button for enter is a rocker switch that is a little temperamental and frustrating to hit in the middle.

All in all a really great, high quality, useful tool.

What a piece of kit, one of the best recording devices I've ever used, I use it at rehearsals on a regular basis and the recording quality is amazing, when I play the recording back through the desk, I have to cut the db level on that channel due to the high recording quality. Buy one now.

If you record audio for pleasure or for work, you need this tool. Amazing value and extremely versatile. If this was a pen knife, the Swiss army would be using it!

5.0 out of 5 stars This recorder is very very good 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Excellent hand held digital recorder. Simple to use great versatility in mic configuration. 16 hrs recording @ 48k x 24 bit with a 32gb SD card.

Sound 4.9 out of 5 (could do with a bit more LF extension, I'm being ultra picky here!)

My son has been using this for coursework on his BA Mus course, and for recording his band and other musicians. He can't praise its quality highly enough, (and he is the ultra picky one, when it comes to sound quality). Needles to say it's permanently attached to his hip in the belt strap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super product 6 Mar 2013

Excellent sound quality. Lots of useful features. Being relatively inexperienced in the use of sound recording equipment I found the tutorials on utube very helpful if not essential for getting the best from the recorder. Highly recommend it.
