- Great Device Just be Methodical- March 16, 2019
This unit is great for capturing sound from multiple sources. I have used it as a stand alone recorder and system unit to capture sound for projects. I produce online video content for clients and this thing works out awesome. BIG POINT! This unit boots up slow and interacting with the menu is slow. It is not unbearable, it just put me to where tech was 8 years ago. With apps opening instantly and feeds constantly updated, you have to remember to be mindful in turning the H4n on before you need and spend the time dialing in your settings. Do not rush, BE METHODICAL!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- The industry standard/battery drinker- May 15, 2019
So I purchased this sound recorder to upgrade my video and podcast prodcast quality. But as it turns out I already had the H2N zoom recorder which has the best omnidirectional microphone for recording table meetings. The two microphones on top of the H4N have a 90 or 120 degree angle and are quite good but the recorder is better utilize with an external mic such as lavalier mics or a boom set up with something like the rode Htn-3 condenser mic. This device drinks batteries and does not come with an adapter so be warned that recording times with 2 AA battery use are about an hour and a half before it dies. Also keep in mind the record button has to be pushed twice. Once for stand by mode to listen to what is being recorded and a second time for live recording.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Wish it would boot up faster.- March 17, 2021
Good sound, nice size, pretty reliable. The biggest problem that is still kind of a deal-breaker is how long it takes to power on and boot up, sometimes as long as 20 seconds. When field recording you'll find that you need to start recording as soon as you hear something, which is similar to field photography when you need your camera to be ready to take a picture as soon as you see something. The workaround is to simply leave this thing powered on as you scout for sounds.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
