The Zoom H2n portable handheld recorder with an onboard 5-mic array lets you record high-resolution stereo or surround sound audio in the palm of your hand. Make aurally exciting music tracks and create captivating sound beds with nothing more than the H2n.

Like other H-Series Handy recorders such as the H5 and H6, you can hold it in your hand, attach it to a mic stand or tripod, or mount it to a camera (shoe mount available separately); the H2n’s multichannel capabilities and rugged, travel-friendly body make it more than ready to meet the varied demands of YouTube content creators, musicians, sound recordists, and more.From its long battery life to its Spatial Audio support, the H2n is well equipped for tracking live music, recording sound effects and ambience, or producing sound for 360° VR videos. It can supply plug-in power for a lavalier condenser mic, or even accept a direct line-level connection from a mixer or wireless receiver. No matter the source, selectable auto-recording and pre-recording ensure that you’ll never miss the start of a take.

Onboard 5-Mic Array for Customizable Audio Pickup

The H2n’s onboard 5-mic array opens the door to true stereo or surround sound recording without external microphones. The built-in microphones—two form an X/Y pair, while the other three are configured in a mid-side pattern—can be used separately for X/Y or MS stereo recording, or combined to create 2- or 4-channel surround sound. A simple dial atop the grille grants effortless switching between the four modes.

Spatial Audio for VR

Using Spatial Audio mode, you can create a single 4-channel, multi-track WAV file that includes omni, left/right, and forward/backward tracks. This Spatial Audio file is then ready to be combined with 360° VR videos recorded with the Google Jump-compatible camera rig (such as the GoPro Odyssey or Ricoh Theta). Once completed, the immersive videos are ready to upload to YouTube.

Includes Audio Software

The H2n comes with free download licenses for Steinberg’s Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software, representing a complete audio production toolkit.
