The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Simple and Convenient

Whether you're recording YouTube videos, podcasts or live performances, you can rely on the Q4N to capture bright, clear video with exceptional audio. The Q4N offers features that make it simple to operate, including one-button recording, automatic microphone gain adjustment and a rotating full-colour touchscreen LCD. The USB port allows you to connect it to any computer or iPad, meaning the Q4N can be used as a web camera or USB microphone. You can also stream live, transfer recordings and recharge your battery.

From Sunlight to Low-Light

Equipped with 10 ''Scene'' presets, the Zoom Q4N ensures excellent recordings in a range of environments, even low-light venues such as nightclubs. These presets include ''Concert Lighting'' where adjustments are made for lighting conditions that can drastically change, and ''Concert-Low Light''. There are also specific Scence settings tailored for shooting at jazz clubs and rehearsal studios, as well as outdoors even at sunset and at night.

The Q4N shoots in a variety of HD and WVGA formats, from high-resolution 2.3K video (2304 x 1296 pixel/30fps/24Mbps 3M HD) down to compact 30fps/5Mbps WVGA files. This handy video recorder also comes complete with a greatly improved aperturem, a 160° wide-angle lens and five steps of digital zoom.

Unrivaled Audio Recording

Zoom has a long-standing reputation for products with outstanding audio capabilities, and the Q4N is certainly no exception. It supports high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz stereo sound and the built-in microphones can handle up to 140dB SPL, which helps guarantee distortion-free recording in even the loudest environments.

When configured to A/B recording, the Q4N captures vivid stereo audio that provides a realistic sense of space and ambience, well-suited for capturing the reverb of a concert hall. X/Y stereo recording captures the natural depth and width, while still delivering a strong center image, ideal for recording musical performances and video blogs.
