    Excellent sound quality in a handy device

    EB | 16 July 2017 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Start up quickly
    • Very clear sound
    • Robustly built
    • Input level dial is fantastic; settings are perfectly visible
    • Battery life is impressive
    • The interchangeable microphone module can be an advantage, but the vulnerability does increase in my opinion
    • Supplied 2GB memory card may be a bit scanty on the total (small point)
    • Date and time settings will be lost after not too long without battery (even a minor point)

    The sound is very good to my ears. I use the H5 like its predecessor for recording concerts and every time I am impressed with the level of detail that Zoom's devices can reproduce, provided the user can handle the device well: if you take care of a recording with a recording level of around -18db and input somewhere below '7', the sound is quiet and crystal clear.

    Those who are familiar with the Zoom H4n, for example, will find their way immediately and I also think that a new user can quickly get to grips with it. The manual is detailed, comprehensive and clear. Thanks to the 'analog' adjustment wheel for the input levels, it is much easier to read that input just as quickly than fiddling with buttons on the side.

    On a number of points it is clear that Zoom has taken the criticism of the fantastic H4n to heart: the SD card cover is better, the line in is in a handy place on the side and no longer at the bottom, the screen gives white / bluish light and not orange, the same batteries last longer and the start-up speed has improved considerably. All in all, I can't help but recommend the H5.

    I can be brief about Coolblue: completely Coolblues, reliable and fast.

    Super happy with it!

    Nina Kramer | 31 March 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • robust
    • easy to use
    • many possibilities, also to connect external mics
    • the supplied windshield does not fit in the carry case

    Borrowed another one and hesitated between that cheaper Tascam and this one. I am very happy that I chose this slightly more expensive device, better sound quality and very easy to use.
    Would be nice if a sound file could also be added, because you want to know that, don't you?

    Versatile handheld recorder with super sound quality.

    Judith | 2 December 2017 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Excellent quality for a handheld recorder
    • Nice successor to the H4n

    I was looking for a versatile recording device for indoor conversations, outdoor recordings and as a recording option for quick ideas with connection to my music equipment. I can connect these very easily via a jack. Meets my expectations perfectly. For outdoor shots I would recommend a deadkitten instead of the included mouse windstopper.
