Very Handy
The Computer & MIDI Doctor 02.04.2020
I've used the H1n to record the audio from the desk directly into the line in, at an 8 hour day conference, using a 32GB card, and it still had plenty of room on the card.

And at another day conference, I put it on an extra mic stand by the people on stage speaking, to record their talks. I also recorded what came out of the mixing desk on another machine, but used the audio from the H1n as it was clearer.

Now I'm using it via the usb cable to my computer as the mic for my Skype sessions, and any computer screen recordings I do. I bought the kit, so I have the mini stand which has extension legs (I hadn't realised) & makes it a great tabletop mic.

I also use it for any song ideas I have, to record my singing, guitar or piano. The quality is good enough to put it into Studio One to start a new song. I pull the card out, put it into an adaptor and plug it into my laptop and transfer the audio. (Transfering audio directly from the machine is MUCH slower.)

I find the on/off switch weird - it is a slide that you have to hold for a second or two until the machine boots up/ powers down. Annoying, but about the only critiek I can think of.

Small, portable, cheap, very good quality audio for the price.


Great for sampling
Beatriz.m 26.07.2020
This recorder is very light and small, perfect to have them always with you to record sounds that you might want to use in your music production, and to record ideas.
Its an great choice for people that want excellent portability and don't mind perfect sound quality.
it does not come with a memory card, and I had a little bit of trouble finding a compatible one.
Its has a great range and but unfortunately it catches a lot of noise,its good for close recordings in quiet places and you must buy it with the respective accessory pack because it helps with the noise reduction (since it has a tripod and a wind sponge).

Its a good starting point for musicians that want to record ideias or sounds for sampling on the go; and its also good for interviews. Other than that, you might as well use your phone.


Lightweight but good features for price
FC Music 29.11.2021
Overall a good unit given its price.
The only cons are the lack of a supplied windsock or slip-on pop filter and it is very easy to clip the audio.


A good starting point
Saleh Gafer 05.12.2018
I used it for record almost every non-digital sounds. I have it for more than 6 months and I have no problems with its workflow. It has a very easy to learn and use interface.

It's made from plastic (except microphones). It's way lighter than I thought (I was compared it with Zoom H4 and H6 on my mind) but it's steady and stabile. It works well for collect ambient, atmosphere sounds and one-hit samples. Sometimes you can catch frequencies that you don't want but by using gain adjustments and build-in eq you can decrease them.

Well, pro's are absolutely the price and quality factors. You have some other options in this price range but it's one step ahead from in the segment that it belongs. In this point of view it's a god starting point for collecting audio samples and recording interviews etc. In the other hand if you want to record a direct signal for instance coming from a mixer or sound card, you do not have a line inputs. This may be a problem if you want to record a live session or a concert. For this I suggest you to buy H4 or higher versions, you can use them for both recording with build-in microphones and direct signal that comes from line-ins.

But if you want to start collecting audio, recording an acoustic session or an interview; this could be a very good choice in this price range.
