Features

• Onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left mics on the same axis, for perfect loacalisation.
• Custom designed, onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°.
• Up to 24-bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for high audio resolution.
• The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB.
• Has a 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.
• Can record continuously for about 11 hours in 16-bit/44.1-kHz linear PCM format.
• Has  XLR/Phone connectors with phantom voltage source capability.
• Can record up to 4 channels using the onboard microphones.
• Can automatically record whenever sound above your designated level is detected.
• Has 2 second pre-record facility.
• 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.
• Stereo input signal can be mixed down to mono to reduce unwanted sound source position shifts between right and left channels. Ideal for recording interviews.
• Built-in reference speaker .
• A large, 1.9 inch LCD screen with backlit graphic display shows all the tracking information.
• The H4n is a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device, meaning that files can be transferred to a computer at the highest rate available.
• Can record continuously for about six hours on a set of two IEC R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries.
