The first portable Mid-Side recorder
The H2n is the first handheld recorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording, a technique used for and surrounding noise are crucial.
Mid-Side recording combines a uni-directional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bi-directional Side mic that captures sound from your left and right.
By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility over your recordings.
If you record in RAW mode, you can even adjust the stereo width after recording.
X/Y mics capture stunning stereo images with depth and accuracy
The H2n’s onboard 90° 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 equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no phase shifting. The result is brilliant stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging.
Five new mic capsules provide four unique recording modes
The H2n features our best microphones yet and is the only portable recorder with five mic capsules onboard. This design enables the H2n to offer four unique recording modes: Mid-Side (MS) stereo, 90° X/Y stereo, 2-channel and 4-channel surround sound.
