Why We Love This Product!

Got Big Ideas? Here's the Little Recorder for You!

Just because something seems too good to be true doesn't mean it isn't. Check this out - the Zoom H1. This baby's a fully professional 2-track studio you can stick in your pocket and still have room left jiggle your keys. It's got built-in X/Y stereo mics and it can record in up to 96kHz/24-bit quality. Best of all, it so ridiculously cheap, absolutely anyone can pick one up. But that's not all - the H1 doesn't even use a ton of batteries - the most expensive thing about lots of recorders, really. With just one AA, you'll be ready to record for up to 10 hours!


The H1 can take up to 32GB microSD cards, so space isn't an issue either. Got a song idea? Bust out your H1 and record it. How about a lecture? Mount your H1 on a little tripod and record it. After that, maybe you've got band practice or you want to capture some ambient sound for a video you're working on... record it and record it - piece of cake! What about a video shoot? Mount it on the camera's shoe, record it... presto, all done! Now it's time for your daily vlog post - set the H1 to 320kbps MP3 format, record it, upload it via USB 2.0 to your computer, and post it in minutes. Get the picture? The H1's stupid-easy to use and so small you can always have it on hand.

Really, there are only five buttons, two volume controls (input and output, in case you're wondering) and that's it. A large LCD display also helps you keep an eye on what you're doing. If there's a H1 in your pocket, you're always just one button press away from recording... which is why it's a good thing you can lock the controls, actually. There's also a switch on the back for highpass filtering and auto levels, so you don't have to worry about handling noise or even setting the levels right. You just point it, and the H1 works its magic. Now, that's an awful lot of recorder for next to no dough. What's not to love about the Zoom H1 handy recorder!?
