The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB. Unlike other media such as tape or discs, SD cards produce no mechanical noise, are not disturbed by vibrations and are readily available for your convenience.

The digitally controlled, high-quality preamplifier renders audio so precise, you'll sound like you recorded in a world-class studio. And this preamp means you can make recording level adjustments on the fly. In addition, an automatic level setting function is also built in to optimize the level quickly as the situation requires.

Choose up to 24-bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for audio resolution that surpasses CD quality. Or, when maximum recording time with smaller file size is desired, select a variety of MP3 formats to produce smaller files suitable for web or e-mail distribution.

With its low-cut filter, the H4n effectively reduces unwanted background noise like wind or air-conditioning noise. A variety of compressors and limiters help to optimize the dynamic range while preventing distortion.
