Zoom H2n Has Five Mics

Portable digital handheld recorders keep adding features

Could this be the beginning of “mic” wars in the handheld recorder market, with an escalation in the number of microphones packed into each unit?

Zoom has worked a total of five microphones into its latest, the H2n, a reworking of the four-mic H2.

According to Zoom, these mics are “our best microphones yet.” The microphone complement allows for a variety of mic modes beyond two-channel stereo: M/S, X-Y and four-channel surround. 

The AA battery or USB-powered H2n records to SD/SDHC cards and has a USB 2.0 interface. Performance is 24-bit/96 kHz or MP3 (320 kbps). It ships with Steinberg WaveLab LE 7. An options kit includes a wired remote, windscreen and tripod.

Price: $199.
