It must be six years or more since the original H4n came out and became something of a success with the home recording market, for which it was intended. Then a number of DSLR video recordists, mainly in the US, discovered it and it got quite a hold in that market there too (not so much here). This was well before recorders specifically designed for DSLR recording came out, of course. Then in 2015 Zoom released the H4n's intended replacement, the superior H5 with its modular microphones. But, despite all this, the H4n (more recently known as the H4nsp) has continued to be popular.

And so Zoom has now updated it as the H4n Pro. Their Four-Track Audio Recorder for Music, Film, Podcasting, and beyond. They've taken everything creators love about the H4n (H4nsp) and brought it to the next level.

The H4n Pro isn't just improved, it's superior in every way. With advanced X/Y microphones, incredibly natural-sounding preamps (the same as in the H5), and a super-low noise floor, you can record everything from Formula One to the fluttering of a hummingbird with extraordinary realism.
