The new H1n is the ultimate take-anywhere recorder for every creator’s gear bag.

Like the previous H1n Handy Recorder  from  Zoom. H1n  is an easy-to-use, versatile stereo digital audio recorder that fits into the palm of your hand.

In contrast to the layout of H1, the H1n features buttons where you can easily see them—on the front of the recorder. You can easily go from recording to pausing, and from stopping to navigating between tracks, all with your thumb. Four buttons above the record function, 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 suitable for musicians, journalists, podcasters, and more, recording both WAV and MP3 files. 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, 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, for 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 favourite headphones or small external speakers.

A USB 2.0 port allows easy transfer of data to your Mac or Windows computer. The H1n is also an audio interface, allowing you to record directly to your favourite DAW.

    Very good recorder that is easy to operate. Build quality is on the low end but understandable for its price. Sound quality is good but not great for extreme volume scenarios (I tested at a live gig and keeping below -6db was difficult without other noises added because of the inbuilt limiter). I am happy with the purchase

    Genuine article. Seemed to be one of the best-recommended recorders for the price. New hobby and looking forward to making audio tracks of Australian Wildlife in our travels. Lots to learn.

    After trying many different types of microphones , I was almost going to give up, I wanted to capture good audio direct to the go pro 10, I had watched a YouTube video where a guy had direct to his cannon camera using the line out or headphone jack, I hadn't seen this before, however after fabricating an elaborate mount for the bike with custom gel mounts for the H1N to sit on, direct 3.5 trs to the go pro media mod mic in 3.5 trs I had a major break through in audio quality, a couple more tweaks and setting changes and I am very happy with the quality, yes this is where I would advise anyone trying to capture audio on a motorcycle to start, a neat little unit with an impressive range of features, all the best and don't give up, cheers Waza G.
