HD Like Hand Held Audio RecorderZoom created the H2 hand held recorder which housed four internal mics for exceptionally great recording quality.
The H2 gives you amazing versatility with its wide variety of recording formats. Choose 24bit/96kHz linear PCM (WAV files) format for the highest audio quality that surpasses CDs. Or record in MP3 format in an almost any bit rate when long recording capability and smaller file sizes are your goals. Even 4-channel, 360Â° recordings can be made in 24bit/48kHz format.In addition, the H2 uses an automated recording function which turns off the recorder if silence is detected. This increases battery life and reduces recording time. The Zoom H2 supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) which is the standard used for broadcasting for time and date stamp information along with cue points or markers for starting and stopping. And if that isn’t enough, the H2 connects via USB whereby the digital recorder turns into the perfect USB podcasting microphone. Priced at $199.
