Unique X/Y mic design captures perfect stereo images
Its onboard 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 an equal distance from the sound source for perfect localization without phase shifting. Frequency response remains uniform throughout
your recording. The result is great stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging every time.
Unmatched versatility from selectable recording paterns
Custom designed, onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. Our unique design lets you rotate
each mic capsule from 90° (standard) to 120° (wide-angle) stereo for the ultimate versatility in any recording situation (US Patent 8184815).
Now your recordings can be richer than ever before.
Attach to a video camera as an external microphone
The H4n is perfect for use on a video or DSLR camera. The remarkable depth and clarity of sound achieved by the stereo X/Y mic design brings
additional realism and depth to HD video. By attaching the H4n to a DSLR video camera with an optional hot shoe mount (HS-1), you can create
a professional video system with high-quality sound.
We now also offer a special accessory package for DSLR users. The APH-4n package includes a windscreen that provides a professional level of
wind noise prevention, a hot shoe mount to attach the H4n to a camera, a remote controller with REC, PLAY, STOP and other functions, an
attenuator cable for connecting the H4n line output to the camera mic input and a splitter cable to allow simultaneous headphone monitoring
High resolution, 24-bit/96kHz linear PCM recording
Choose up to 24-bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for audio resolution that surpasses CD quality. Or, when maximum recording time with smaller file
size is desired, select a variety of MP3 formats to produce smaller files suitable for web or e-mail distribution
Secure your digital memories on SD and SDHC cards
The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB. Unlike other media such as tape or discs, SD cards produce no mechanical
noise, are not disturbed by vibrations and are readily available for your convenience.
We're all about the pre-amp
Our new, digitally controlled, high-quality preamplifier renders audio so precise, you'll sound like you recorded in a world-class studio. And
this new preamp means you can make recording level adjustments on the fly. Of course, an automatic level setting function is also built in to
optimize the level quickly as the situation requires.
Phrase trainer with speed control playback
Learning new songs is now a breeze with the H4n's adjustable playback speed that ranges from 50 to 150 percent, while keeping pitch the same.
This is also a great feature for learning a language, conference recording, and various electronic news gathering (ENG) situations
Low-cut filter and limited for better recordings
With its low-cut filter, the H4n effectively reduces unwanted background noise like wind or air-conditioning noise. A variety of compressors
and limiters help to optimize the dynamic range while preventing distortion.
Stamina mode extends battery to 11 hours
For situations where you require maximized, continuous recording operation you can select stamina mode which effectively doubles battery life,
letting you record continuously for about 11 hours in 16-bit/44.1-kHz linear PCM format.
Combined XLR/Phone connectors for direct mic or guitar input
The H4n is the only handheld recorder that features built-in combination XLR/Phone connectors with phantom voltage source capability. With
its Hi-Z inputs, you can record guitars or other line output sources such as mixing consoles. A separate external mic input supports plug-in
Why four channels are better than two.
Proper miking is essential to making a great recording. The H4n is the only handheld recorder that allows recording on four channels simultaneously
by using your own external mics with its onboard mics. Use its built-in mixer to blend the channels for perfectly balanced recordings of
extraordinary depth and clarity
Capture everything with automatic recording
You can set your H4n to automatically record whenever sound above your designated level is detected. This ensures that you capture everything of
importance while minimizing blank sections such as when recording a conference or lecture
