Unmatched Versatility from selectable recording paterns
Custom designed, onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. The unique design lets you rotate each mic capsule from 90° (standard) to 120° (wide-angle) stereo for the ultimate versatility in any recording situation. Now your recordings can be richer than ever before.
Unique X/Y mic arrangement 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 localisation without phase shifting. Frequency response remains uniform throughout your recording. The result is great stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging every time.
High Resolution, 24-bit / 96k-Hz 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 preamp...
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 optimise 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 limiter 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 optimise the dynamic range while preventing distortion.
Stamina mode extends battery life to 11 hours
For situations where you require maximised, 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 power microphones.
Why four channels are better thn 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 minimising blank sections such as when recording a conference or lecture.
Pre-record feature means no surprises
The H4n can also be set to continuously record the most recent two seconds of audio in memory. Now, you never miss the beginning of anything you want to record, even when it begins suddenly.
Edit audio, even without a computer
Even without external software, you can divide a recorded file at any desired point, right on the H4n. A built-in normalising feature lets you optimise the volume level, and you can convert WAV files into MP3 directly on the unit as well.
Versatile playback options
You can choose between single-song playback, single-song repeat, all-songs playback, or all-songs repeat. This is great when you want to use the H4n as a personal trainer for learning new music. A-B repeat even lets you zoom in on a specified section of a song.
Broadcast ready with time stamping and track markers
The H4n supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) used in broadcasting and other professional A/V applications. Recorded files carry time stamp information and you can set markers (cue points) during recording or playback.
Monaural mix function great for interviews
A stereo input signal can be mixed down to mono to reduce unwanted sound source position shifts between right and left channels. This is ideal for recording interviews.
Mid-side stereo decoder
The built-in M/S stereo decoder allows the use of an external Mid-Side microphone setups. The H4n converts the mid and side channel signals into a conventional stereo (L/R) signal for even more versatility, and it's only found on the H4n.
Four Track MTR mode
The MTR mode allows simultaneous 2-track recording and 4-track playback. With this feature, creating songs by overdubbing vocals and instruments is a snap. Level and panning can be adjusted individually for each track on the built-in mixer, and you can even do a mixdown right on the H4n.
Center cancel and pitch control functions
With its centre cancel function, the H4n even lets you suppress audio that is recorded with centre imaging. And because the H4n also lets you alter pitch without changing playback speed, you can choose source material, suppress the centre audio and use it as a backing track while recording a vocal or guitar track.
Onboard effects include studio effects and guitar amp modelsThe H4n offers a choice of 50 studio-quality
DSP effects including compressor, chorus, phaser, delay, and reverb. In addition, models of the most famous guitar amps are included. Find tone perfection with classic amp models during your recording sessions.

Musician friendly tools for better practice
The H4n has a number of useful tools that will be welcomed by musicians. The built-in tuner allows for quickly checking the pitch of a vocalist or tuning an instrument. The selectable metronome sound can serve as a guide rhythm during recording and is also great for practising.
Integrated reference speaker
The H4n even has a built-in reference speaker to let you check recordings without earphones. It is also handy to preview playback when selecting recorded files.
Large display and rubberized chassis
A large, 1.9 inch LCD screen with backlit graphic display shows all the tracking information at a glance and makes it easy to navigate the functions of the unit. And its new rubberised, shock resistant chassis also improves durability while reducing handling noise.
USB2.0 Hi-speed support for faster file transfer
The H4n is now a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device, meaning that files can be transferred to a computer at the highest rate available. Then use recording software for editing, create your own original CDs, post your recordings on your myspace page or send out your recordings by e-mail... the possibilities are endless.
It's still a USB audio interface
The H4n also functions as a USB audio interface, letting you record directly to your computer. Use your favourite recording software or the bundled Cubase LE 4 from Steinberg, so you can start to produce and edit music right away.
