Zoom H2n puts five mics in your hand

Samson Audio announces the Zoom H2n handheld audio recorder, an affordable way to capture professional-quality sound with a unique five-microphone capsule design capable of surround-sound recordings.

Due out in September, the Zoom H2n has the makings of a killer little portable audio recorder.

Like its predecessor the Zoom H2, the new model will be priced at $199, and keeps the same retro electric shaver design but in a more attractive black color pattern.

Inside, though, Zoom has packed a total of five microphone capsules, allowing it to capture up to four simultaneous channels of uncompressed surround sound. Those same microphones allow for three stereo modes, including a unique midside stereo pattern that makes use of three of the five mike capsules.

To take a closer look at the Zoom H2n and its capabilities, take a look at our image gallery and watch the video below.
