Zoom introduces stereo, 2-ounce handheld recorder

Smaller, faster, lighter ... Zoom has released its smallest recorder to date, the H1 Handy Recorder. The H1 weighs in at just 2 oz, but delivers heavyweight HD audio recording power with the same studio-quality microphones as Zoom’s renowned H2 – the most popular handheld recorder in the world. The affordable H1 is priced at just $99, and is available now at select retailers and around the country.

The H1 is also the easiest Zoom recorder to use, boasting a new user friendly interface that places all its functions at the touch of a button. The H1 can accommodate up to 32GB microSDHC memory cards, providing over 50 hours of recording time and runs on a single AA size battery (up to 10 hours or continuous operation).

With its Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port, the H1 allows for fast transfer of your audio files to your computer. Listen, edit and share with your fans on your Mac or PC. It also includes a reference speaker to ensure your recordings are being captured as you desire.

“The H1 is Zoom's smallest, most affordable recorder ever,” praises Mark Wilder, Director of Marketing for Samson. “Now everyone everywhere can easily make quality stereo recordings. Whether you’re a musician, journalist, filmmaker or a business professional, this H1 is for you.”

H1 users can purchase an H1 accessory kit for just $24.99 that includes a windscreen, AC adapter (USB type), USB cable, adjustable tripod stand, soft carrying pouch and mic clip adapter.Vbr>
