Want to hear EVPs as they happen? This unit features live listening capability so you can hear potential evidence on the spot. Just plug in a set of headphones or external speaker.
You can set markers on the audio file while you recording. This lets you flag the file in the spot where you believe you may have heard potential evidence for special review later. The screen on the recorder will show a list of file markers with time stamps and allow you to review each.
Why Use 4 Channels?
In addition to the two on-board surround microphones there are also inputs for 2 additional microphones. This allows you the option to record audio from different locations all on one recorder or different areas of the same room so you can better triangulate where audio is coming from. You can use the H4n in conjunction with boom micrphones, handhelds or lavaliers while gathering atmospheric audio with the onboard mics.

- Protective case
I have used many audio recorders, and this blows them all away. The fact you are able to pause, and then pick back up is amazing. I also enjoy because it breaks it into files, that I am able to verify with my notes. It is extremely clear when you are doing EVP sessions, and you are able to recored while you are hearing in REAL time! It also comes with a case, that you can throw in your gear. This is my all time favorite recorder and you won't find me without out during investigations.
Zoom Pro 4hn
I have wanted one of these for a long time. Fantastic piece of kit. I was testing it at the house and found out I have a friend living with me off and on. The 4hn recording was play through some studio monitors and it was clear as day. My friend's name is "Isadora" and she is no problem at all. What a surprise.
Nice recorder with clean sound
This recoder is very nice, it has a lot of functions outside of doing evp's. It does take some getting used to but the manual helps. my suggestion is take your time getting to know this recorder and it's functions. I would highly recommend this recorder though :)
this recorder blows most recorders away the sound recording is great and it records some what better then the H1 love it must have recorder
Review of the ZOOM H4N
This tool is great. I have been investigating for years and now have this one added to our collection. Though a bit on the high price side, you get what you pay for. The H4N delivers. You can cutomize it in audio settings to benefit what you are trying to do, also you can use it for music, and recording sessions as it is versitile. I use it for EVP sessions, but also for other things like recording my DJ sets, and voice recordings for trainings and such. Happy with the unit. Dir & Co Founder Hometown Paranormal Essex VT
