I have the H4 and prefer it because of the XLR inputs over the H2 (which is very nice and a little easier to use).
I have a ton of clips from the H4 online and use it daily in my practice sessions.
I had an H4, but it was stolen. I replaced it last week with an H2. I would have happily bought another H4, but because I only used stereo mode it didn't make sense (for me) to pay extra for the 4-track capabilities of the H4. The H2 is a little smaller and more convenient, but if you want XLR mics, effects, or 4-track, you won't be sorry with an H4. Either would be ideal for recording rehearsals, lessons, etc. and both are a big improvement over casette tapes and minidiscs of the past.
My wife always joked that the H4 looked like a taser. Now she says the H2 looks like an electric razor.
Tom, thanks for the head's up. I've been looking for something like this.
What is the quality of the H2 microphones? I can't find specs on the web.
So I just recieved my H2 yesterday and wanted to upload a clip for people to hear some plain solo trumpet but I do not know how to upload a mp3. Any help would be appreciated.
I bought one to, but I haven't got it yet. It's scheduled to arrive tomorrow. I'll let you all know how it works.
I just got mine today. It's a terrific recorder. My only problem with it is that it also records my mistakes :). I'm going to use it to record my lessons and performances in trumpet class.
On my myspace link below are some samples of me playing the opening of the 2nd movement of the Haydn and the opening of Charlier No. 4. Both need some work but it will demonstrate the sound quality of the H2 zoom. I used front 44.1 16 bit and medium gain. It has given me a much better idea of what I need to work on.
