OVERVIEW

Limited edition of the popular handheld recorder in red.

Don't let its size fool you. The H1 Handy Recorder has Zoom's renowned recording technology and studio-quality microphones in their easiest, most portable device ever.

Now Zoom recording technology is available to everyone. And with an infinite variety of applications, you'll want to take your H1 everywhere. From musical performances, songwriting sessions and rehearsals to seminars, conferences, journalism or capturing audio for video, the H1 gives you clean, clear stereo sound effortlessly.

What sets Zoom apart?
Like all Zoom recorders, the H1's onboard microphones are configured in an X/Y pattern, for stunning stereo imaging. Because both mics are arranged on the same axis, they are equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no phase shifting. The result is great stereo recordings with natural depth and accurate imaging.

Under your thumb
With its newly designed user interface, the H1 is also Zoom's easiest recorder to use. All its functions are at your fingertips, such as track marker, auto record, low cut filter, level and volume controls with on-board buttons No menus required.

Intuitive controls make it easy to capture the audio you need with ease. But Zoom still provides the versatility you've come to expect. So you get total recording format flexibility from 16-bit/44.1 kHz to 24-bit/96 kHz WAV, or MP3 from 48 kbps to 320 kbps and enough tools onboard to make impeccable recordings.

Everything you need to get started recording is included. Your H1 comes with an AA battery for 10 hours of operation and a 2 GB microSD card.

In addition, an H1 accessory package (APH-1) is also available (see sku # H70260) with an array of accessories that make your recordings even more pristine and easier to capture. The accessory kit includes a windscreen, AC adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, padded-shell case and a mic clip adapter.

Combining powerful recording capability with elegance and simplicity, the H1 Handy Recorder is our smallest, most affordable recorder ever.

Bought the recorder to record sermons at our church (which is somewhat itinerant) at various locations. Took a while to get the settings correct to record through line-in from the board at our current location, currently works fantastic. Now that I know how to get the audio properly set up, I will be able to easily teach others how to operate it. Audio quality is quite good at 44kHz, 16bit recording setting.

This will do nicely as a spare for emergencies (carry in your backpack, etc), but no way is this the single recording solution for semi pro or pro use. noisy when held, and bulky for it's small size, i find it works well when not handled. I would get the zoom H2 or above if this were my only recorder. The built in mics are very good, and it is most useful with an external mic setup. the biggest thing in it's favor is that it only requires 1 AA battery (i got 7 hours on it with a new no name battery).

      Comments about Zoom H1 Handy Recorder Red Special Edition:

      It's very sensitive, you will pick up the sound of hitting the record button. Also, you have to use ear buds to listen to your recordings, but the sound is very high quality. The speaker just sucks and I wish the instructions were better. Do not pay full price, it's just not worth it. Wait for SDOTD, or on sale. But, overall. I'd buy it again, on sale

          I picked this up to record band practices. Sound quality is very good and captures the practice well enough to have a rough recording. I'll be using to record ideas at home; quick and easy to record and send over to the band.

                I'm so tired of having to figure out all things technical, but this little googy was a schnap! Yes, it took a little while, but on a compairative level, it was a no brainier. Remember plug and play? How easy everything used to be 20 years ago? Pretty close to that. Yes, that's a sigh of relief you're hearing. On sale, cheep, even with a 2 year extended warranty. How can you beat that? Perfect for capturing guitar ideas on the fly. What took me so long!
