Zoom H4n vs H2n

Customer Reviews

If you chech out the Zoom H2N reviews you will see that it has garnered quite a bit of a mixed response since its release into the international markets.

A lot of knowledgeable users have deemed it to be an excellent addition to any musician’s collection of tools. This small, yet powerful device has sensitive sound recorder features that can pick up on the tiniest of details.

Like many small devices, though, the H2n unit suffers rather lousy praise from some users for having unimpressive durability. The remote port and long battery life, somewhat make up for these issues.
