New mics, new sound
The Zoom H2n features Zoom's best microphones yet and is the only
portable recorder with five mic capsules onboard. This design enables
the H2n to offer four unique recording modes: Mid-Side (MS) stereo, 90į
X/Y stereo, 2-channel and 4-channel surround sound.
The first portable Mid-Side recorder
The Zoom H2n is the first handheld recorder to offer Mid-Side stereo
recording, a technique used for many years in film and broadcast, where
ambiance and surrounding noise are crucial. Mid-Side recording combines a
uni-directional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you
and a bi-directional Side mic that captures sound from your left and
By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can
control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible
flexibility over your recordings. If you record in RAW mode, you can
even adjust the stereo width after recording.
You still get X/YÖ
The H2nís onboard 90į X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the
right and left mics on the same axis. This design ensures that the mics
are always equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization
and no phase shifting. The result is brilliant stereo recording with
natural depth and accurate imaging.
Using the H2nís Mid-Side and X/Y mics together, you can create
stunning 360-degree surround sound recordings. Choose between 2-channel
mode, which combines the Mid-Side and X/Y mics, and 4-channel mode,
which records two separate stereo files, allowing you even more
post-production capability. No matter which mode you use, youíll get
perfectly balanced, surround sound recordings.
Streamline your recording experience
The H2n is remarkably easy to use. With its newly designed user
interface, critical controls are right at your fingertips and make
studio-quality recording a breeze.
The H2n also houses an arsenal of comprehensive functions, including Auto-Gain, a compressor/limiter, time stamping and more.
Weíve got you covered
Never again will you have to worry about losing recorded data to
unexpected errors. The H2n has you covered with its new data recovery
function. Whether you experience battery loss or an accidental
power-down, this feature will automatically restore your data the next
time the H2n is powered on.
20 hours of battery life
The H2n provides over 20 hours of continuous operation on just two
standard AA alkaline batteries! This astonishing feature enhances the
H2nís flexibility and convenience. In addition, the H2n can also operate
using an AC adapter, which is included in the optional APH-2n Accessory

crystal-clear monitoring and makes it simple to navigate all of the
Turning to analog
Digital volume controls offer too much or too little gain, with no
middle ground. The H2nís Mic Gain wheel allows you to dial-in the
perfect amount of gain for any given application.

have been captured. With its 1/8-inch stereo output, you can also
