The H4n Pro isn't just improved, it's superior in every way. With advanced X/Y microphones, incredibly natural-sounding preamps, and a super-low noise floor, you can record everything from the Indy 500 to the fluttering of a hummingbird with extraordinary realism.
Excellent sound quality and options at this price point. Very easy to use in the standard stereo mode with decent built-in mics. Easily worth the money.
This recorder is unique and really does the job well once you've figured how it works, and that took hours of reading the manual for me. I was a bit disappointed to learn that you can't use effects in 4-channel mode, so you can't use h4n pro's effects and record the microphone and the external inputs at the same time, anyways that wasn't a big deal for me. Amazing sound quality, portable size and possibility of using it as an audio interface make this great device a must-have!
