I bought an H4n to compare with the H2 onboard mics. I did a quick recording simultaneously and then listened back to each. Through a few different pairs of headphones and a couple different speaker setups, I was unable to discern any difference in the recording quality from the on-board mics of both units.
That said, i'm keeping my H2 and am selling the H4n in the SOTW marketplace. I can still return it for a full refund, minus a restocking fee; but would rather sell it here at a slight discount for someone who will be able to use the H4n to its full potential.
