The ultra-compact H1n Handy Recorder brings new meaning to the term "portability." Easy to take wherever you go - live concerts, band rehearsals, lectures and meetings, or for capturing your musical inspirations wherever you are.

Zoom H1n Handy Recorder
This ultra-compact H1n recorder is designed to easily record professional quality audio, quickly and efficiently. Designed to capture live stereo recordings with its built in X/Y microphone, it is ideal for recording live concerts, band rehearsals, meetings and lectures, and your moments of musical inspiration.

Added Features
The new H1n features and improved user experience and updated more durable and ergonomic design. New features include overdubbing functionality, playback speed control and a tone generator.  

X/Y Microphone makes Stereo Recording simple
The H1n's built-in X/Y microphone provides two matched unidirectional microphones set at a 90 degree angle relative to one another, optimum for most stereo recording applications. Alternatively, you can connect a pair of external microphones or line level signal to the H1n's Mic/Line Input mini phone jack for X/Y or other types of stereo recording. 

The Ins and Outs - external Mics, Headphone Output, in-built Speaker
The Mic/Line Input is a stereo ⅛" mini phone jack that can accept two mic- and/or line-level signals. Condenser microphones requiring Plug-In Power (2.5 volts) can be connected to this jack. Recordings can be monitored either via the stereo ⅛" phone jack with headphones, or by the built-in speaker on the back panel. The USB port provides a digital output of the stereo mix and allows data to be sent to and from your computer. It also allows the H1n to be used as a 2-in/2-out audio interface and USB microphone, as well as a microSD card reader.

Auto Level and Low Cut Filter
The Auto Level function sets input gain automatically to prevent overload and distortion. Alternatively, input level can be set manually. The H1n also provides a built-in low cut filter for the elimination of pops, wind noise, blowing, and other kinds of low frequency rumble.

Battery Life and Recording Times
The H1n requires just a single AA battery—either alkaline or rechargeable NiMH—for power. Alternatively, you can use an optional AD-17 AC adapter. The H1n records directly to microSD and microSDHC cards, up to 32 gigabytes.
