Great portable recorder!

Kristijan, 28.07.2017
I had a zoom H4n before I bought H5. Much better for me. More options and simple things.
On H4 there was longer loading when you turn on device, H5 much faster.
Then, volume button I like more this wheel on H5, much easier.
Battery life very much longer than H4.
If you short on battery, no problem just use smartphone charger for 1A and you got power, no need for some extra adapter like on H4.
Sound is better, better preamps, better gain.
I use this for recording vocal and acoustic guitar. No matter where I am, I can record just like that, fast and simple, no need for PC and some extra equipment. You can record 4-channel simultaneous, and after you can mix just like you want in some audio software program.
In this package you get foam wind shield what is really nice thing.

Bad thing, power button I hope it will last longer. I had some problems on H4. H5 has the same principle power button.
X/Y Microphone capsule has some wires on the side I hope they will not break or damage something. Does not look very safe.
Case for H5 is really bad, H4 has much better case.

Conclusion, I like H5 better than H4n, but if you can't spend some extra money H4n will do the job just fine.

Upgraded sound, some downgrades in usability, for me

VilleV, 19.08.2014
I now have the H5, I ordered it first thing and I?ve now tested it out the first time. After the H4 using it is a breeze, no real need for manual, it sounds great, BUT I?ve had 1) one serious problem and 2) another annoyance that I didn?t think of until using it in real life.

1) I use the recorder mainly to record my DJ sets, both the record out (of a Pioneer DJM900nexus DJ mixer) and the crowd/ambience, which I did the other night, but the recording is somehow messed-up. My set was a bit over two hours long and while the first hour was fine, starting around the two-hour mark (not exactly, though) there are digital glitches thru out the rest of the recording, making it unusable. I don't know what causes it and I?ll have to go back to the H4 until I figure this out. The SD card is the same 16GB one I've used without any issues with my H4 for several years, so shouldn't be that.

EDIT: I contacted Zoom support and was adviced to get a new (SanDisk) class 10 SDHC, which I did and now the recording is flawless. I don't understand this, as the old H4n was and is working just fine with my old memory card with the same sampling frequency and bit depth (44,1k/24bit), but I guess some specs have changed and the new one needs a newer spec card.

2) The H4 gain settings are done via the +/- buttons on the side vs. the actual gain pots on the H5. Most of the time I record a line level stereo signal out of a DJ mixer and it is REALLY hard to set the levels of both line channels exactly the same by turning the H5 dials/knobs, which affects the integrity of the stereo recording. Also, it was REALLY fiddly to adjust the gains to a level where it wasn?t way too hot or dead quiet, and even though you have the numbers on the dials, setting them up seemingly even yielded to a 1-2dB difference between the channels. It shouldn?t be that hard, I hope I missed something.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a 'studio in a box' replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
