Zoom North America today introduced the new H4n Pro portable digital audio recorder.
Zoom says that they’ve ‘taken everything creators love about the original H4n and brought it to the next level.’
The H4n Pro’s built-in condenser mics capture have been updated to handle up to a thunderous 140 dB SPL, to help ensure distortion-free X/Y recording.
The Pro’s two XLR/TRS inputs utilize the same mic preamps used in the Zoom H5 and H6 Handy Recorders. The improved noise floor (-120 dBu EIN) allows for audio capture with less noise and fewer artifacts.
