Suggested December 2023 Best Portable Audio Recording? Zoom H1 Review
Before actually owning the zoom h1, I did do my own research on the product. Everyone’s conclusion was that it felt like a cheap toy. However, I feel as though, while it is all plastic, it still feels sturdy. I have dropped this mic before and it has yet to crack. (I hope it doesn’t of course!) And upside to it being all plastic is that it is very light. The build itself is a very small mic intended for on the go usage. It might just be me, but there is something satisfying when you can buy an a product for use, and not have to worry about it getting scuffed up. Coming in an all plastic and cheap form actually makes me want to bring it around more. I toss it into my bag and go. And I think that’s a very important factor when considering this type of product to buy. Just don’t expect a tank when your buying this product. Keep in mind the satisfying buying price of it and you won’t have any complaints.
To be blunt the sound is fantastic. With an onboard mic that you get with your typical DSLR, you’ll notice the sound levels are not equal. Every now and then I would record a conversation with two people, and while they are at the same exact distance from the camera, every now and then one voice would be extremely high while the other would be low.– Not with the zoom h1. If I aim the mic correctly, the audio is not only equal, but it is also accurate.Another problem that I had before using the Zoom h1 was the fact that my onboard mic picked up a certain humming noise in the background. The h1, as im sure many if not all external mics, fix this problem. The Zoom h1 mic also removed the audio echo that I received with many other cameras. (Especially webcams)
I do not have a wind filter, as it does not come with one, but I have noticed, to no surprised, that in semi-windy condition, without a wind filter, it does pick up a lot of wind noise. A LOT. Not a negative thing, that’s typical, but don’t be put off by it and buy a wind filter. (If you intend to work in windy conditions)
The Zoom H1 does cannot be directly connected into your camera. You must manually sync you audio. It could be a major pain, and it is something you definitely want to consider. I believe in the new Final Cut Pro X there is a way to automatically sync the audio, but even then, I would of course rather just have the audio recorded right into our DSLR. If this is a problem, you might want to consider the Zoom H1′s big brother: the Zoom H4n.
The zoom consumes only one AA battery, but I still wish it had a charging feature. It also does have tripod screw in so if you have an extra tripod you can mount it equally to your camera.
For a budget mic, I think it is a great product. I do envy the Zoom H4n, but considering the price this product it is going for, I can’t complain much. It’s a mic, that I use to supplement everything, my DSLR, my webcam, and sometimes even my phone. The only downside I would have to say is, again, you have to manually sync the audio in post production. So do I recommend this mic? Yes, yes I do!
The Zoom H1, your portable audio recorder now the perfect supplement to any DSLR or video recording device. Small and affordable, but what does all of that sacrifice?
You're reading Best Portable Audio Recording? Zoom H1 Review
I was a huge gushing fan of the Bose Soundlink Mini when I reviewed it this summer, calling it the “Best Sounding portable Bluetooth speaker ever”. For $199 you’d get bookshelf type of power and clarity with 6 hour battery in a portable package that you could throw in a coat pocket, bag, or purse.
This week, Bose started shipping a bigger version, the $299 Soundlink 3 which is officially the successor to the Soundlink 2 but it grabs a lot more technology, features and appearance from the very successful Mini. The big bro ‘III’ boasts an impressive 14-hour battery, 6 Bluetooth device memory, and doubles the Mini with four drivers and two passive radiators. In the process it doubles in size to a 3-pound package that isn’t nearly as portable as the Mini at 5 inches high, 10 inches wide, and 2 inches deep.
But does that $100 and double size give you appreciably better sound?
The short answer is yes. This has a better sound and volume than the Soundlink Mini, giving it the title of ‘Best Sounding Portable Bluetooth Speaker’ in my book. How much better the sound is, however, is debatable. Bose tends to artificially boost the bass in music and doesn’t quite compensate in the midrange areas (highs are good). For most stuff this sounds great but people can argue forever on their respective tastes. I found it also sounded much better in front of the wall so that the bass bounced off the back of the speaker into the room.
The Soundlink Mini gets really loud and easily fills a normal room with deep, clean music and is plenty loud for a small group of people to listen to outside on a bike, at a park, or on the beach. The Soundlink III goes one step further, filling a large room and possibly annoying the neighbors in the process.
The buttons and lights work mostly the same as the Mini and are relatively straightforward. On one side, you have volume and mute buttons. On the other, you have power, Bluetooth and AUX buttons. These are real buttons with a deep push, not capacitative like cheaper products.
The product overall is solid. The speaker feels substantial because of the heavy magnets in those speakers inside and it has a polished metal grill on the outside that will go well with aluminum and stainless steel Apple products.
On the back you get a proprietary AC power adapter, a micro USB service entrance, and an AUX-in port for non-Bluetooth connectivity, again, very similar to the Mini. On the bottom you’ll see two brass prongs which seem to indicate a future dock connector but as of this writing none has been announced.
As I said in the Mini review, charging via Micro USB would have been much preferred, as dragging around the power adapter can be a … drag. Luckily, you don’t really need to charge this one that often…
Bose says you can get 14 hours of playback from a single charge. To test this, I listened to the Soundlink III for a few hours each day for a full week during a 9-day ski vacation on which I didn’t bring the charger. True to form, the Soundlink died on the 7th day – well on its way through 14 hours. A battery indicator is on the front but it doesn’t convey much information – compare to the Logitech App that comes with its UE Boom line that tells you exactly how much battery you have left.
The pictures I took above are with the $35 accessory covers which are available separately for $34.95 each. They add some personality and protection, but not much else. You can probably pass on these.
This is what it looks like ‘naked’:
This is the best-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker I’ve heard but it isn’t appreciably better than the $100 cheaper Soundlink Mini and it is significantly less portable. Moreover, Bose didn’t fix any of the gripes I had with the Soundlink Mini:
It still has a proprietary AC charger to lug around rather than using micro-USB (or better yet, accepting both)
It still turns completely off after a few minutes of non-use and requires turning it back on rather than re-pairing automatically
Bluetooth 4/LE would improve distance, power usage and sound quality. Bose needs to get there.
There is no mic and you can’t use this as a speakerphone
No app to measure battery or pair multiple speakers like Ultimate Ears
For most people, I’d still recommend the $199 Soundlink Mini. It sounds as good 95% of the time and it is cheaper and smaller. For me, I almost never needed the extra volume or battery life that the Soundlink III included. Still, I know some will appreciate those features.
For those who don’t like the downsides above, check out the Ultimate Ears Boom and Mini Boom which offer sound almost as good as Bose but add Micro USB charging, the ability to use it as a speakerphone, and better pairing/app/experience.

There are tons of Bluetooth speakers out there, making it difficult to review one and try to differentiate it from the rest. I had a chance to try out the Tronsmart Mega Pro portable speaker, and it didn’t disappoint.Looks and Feel
When I took the speaker out of the box, the very first impression was that it is very heavy. Being a portable speaker, I would expect it to be something small and light. Weighing at 1780g and with a size of 250 x 82 x 104mm, it is not considered light, small and portable to me. I would think twice before I put it in my bag to bring it with me.
At the top of the speaker is the touch control. The buttons, ordered from left to right, are “Voice assistant,” “Mode,” “TWS stereo,” “Equalizer,” “Previous Track,” “Playing,” “Next Track” and “NFC.” Right below the buttons is a Volume slider.
At the back are the various ports and the Power button. There is an AUX input, USB-A, USB-C ports and a TF/SD card slot for playing music from a card.
What I really like is the rubberized bottom. You can just place it on the table with little chance of knocking it down or moving it accidentally.Specifications

To say that this is just a normal Bluetooth speaker is an understatement. Despite how it looks, it packed more punches than any other Bluetooth speaker.
First of all, it packs a 60W woofer and 2 side tweeters with 1 passive bass radiator and 2 amplifiers in the speaker, which ensure that it can deliver good bass and output.
It also comes with three modes of Equalizer effects. The default is Deep Bass. Pressing the EQ button once will activate 3D bass (green light) and pressing it twice will activate the Vocal bass (blue light).
The huge battery pack (10400mAh) within ensures that it can last a long time (up to 10 hours) before you need a recharge. It can also be used as a power bank to charge your mobile phone.
Its IPX5 rating allows some water to be splashed on it, but don’t bring it into the pool.
The Tronsmart Mega Pro also supports Siri, Google Assistant and Cortana, though it only supports answer and end call function.Performance
Getting it to work is very easy. Simply power it on and pair it with your device. The pairing is fast and effortless. If your phone comes with an NFC feature, you can easily pair the speaker with the phone and NFC, too.
When playing music on it, the volume slider doesn’t work as well as it should. There seems to be a maximum limit, and I can’t make it any louder beyond a certain level. On the other hand, if I control the volume from the device, the volume can get really loud. With a sound meter, it recorded a 86dB at its maximum volume, which is considered really loud. Even at 50 percent volume, it consistently hovered at 60 – 70db.
The bass effect of the speaker is really good. The Equalizer setting makes quite a big difference to the music being played. When playing Santorini by Yanni, I found that the 3D bass gives the best sound effect. For a movie, the Vocal bass gives the best sound effect.
The ability to charge your phone is a bonus. While there is no quick-charging option, I am still able to charge my phone from 30% to 100% in two hours.
If you have two of these speakers, you can pair them up with the TWS stereo mode and use them as a pair of stereo speakers. With both speakers in close proximity and powered on, press the TWS button on one of them, and it will pair with the other speaker. The active speaker will have a flashing light on the TWS button.Wrapping Up
Other than it being a portable speaker, this is a really great speaker. Be it the specifications or performance, both are impressive. If you love heavy bass to your music, you will like this speaker.
The Tronsmart Mega Pro speaker is priced at $89.99 and is available for purchase from Aliexpress, Geekbuying, and Amazon.

We are living in the age of the “Internet of Things.” Nearly every device—from your phones to your lamps to your toothbrush—has WiFi capabilities, and the interconnected IoT network almost requires you to be always on all the time. This reality is one of the reasons we recommend everyone pick up one of the best WiFi boosters for their home, as there’s a lot more competition for bandwidth in the age of work/school/game/stream from home than there used to be. But what if you’re on the go and the work can’t wait? What if you’re out and about and really need to be connected? Don’t worry, you don’t need to go over your data cap as you’re going over wide-ranging terrain with the best portable WiFi options.The best portable WiFi: Reviews & Recommendations
The TP-Link is compact, simple, looks great, and can fit in a pocket or the pouch of a knapsack. It can deliver 300Mbps WiFi speed on a 2.4G hertz band, which makes it great for streaming and online gaming. it’s compatible with Chromecast, and powers via a Micro USB port. We like it because it’s sleek, secure, and efficient.Best battery life: RoamWiFi R10
The RoamWiFi R10 supports 4G LTE high-speed network, with a maximum upload speed of 50Mbps and a maximum download speed of 433Mbps. But its main selling point is that it provides a solid 18 hours of battery life after a full charge (which is about 3 hours). It’s small, as easy to carry around as a smartphone, and provides strong, secure connections.Most user-friendly: GlocalMe G4 Pro 4G LTE Mobile HotSpot
The GlocalMe G4 allows you to connect up to 10 devices at once—but the best part is how easily it allows you to manage those connections. With its smartphone-like user interface, it makes managing device usage, tracking battery life, and connecting to available signals as easy as using an app. It has its own data plan and package rates, so those not looking to deal with SIM cards will find this an added convenience.Best for connection speed: NetGear Mobile WiFi Hotspot
To be honest, NetGear’s 400 Mbps of download speed might even be better than what you get on your home desktop. Designed to be portable and convenient, the NetGear offers 11 hours of battery life, a color LCD display, and the ability to connect to up to 15 devices at once.Best budget: KuWFi 4G LTE
The KuWFi comes in at just under $50, but offers 4G LTE connectivity, low power consumption, and the ability to share up to 10 devices. It has a clear, colorful LED screen showing battery life, connection strength, and other pieces of information, and is compatible with a number of SIM cards and data storage cards.Things to consider when shopping for the best portable WiFi
When you’re on the lookout for devices designed to help you be more product and more connected—which is exactly what the best portable WiFi devices are meant to do—it’s easy to fall into the trap of something big and complex and seemingly all-powerful, only to discover that you only actually need a fraction of its capabilities for your everyday use. Knowing exactly how you work, and where your own personal trouble spots are, will help you narrow your focus and get a device that does exactly what you need it to do. With the right research (which we’ve happily done for you), you can narrow down the copious options and identify the perfect portable companion for all your on-the-go network needs.Do you want something you won’t mind carrying around with you?
It’s not shallow to say that how a device looks goes a long way towards how willing you’ll be to carrying it around with you. A clunky, brick-like device is going to become a burden, and you’ll end up not getting as much use out of it as you should. It goes beyond aesthetics, too, as a well-designed device will be user-friendly and convenient in addition to being a cool part of your portable communications system.
Your search should consider the overall size of the device, its functionality, and how easily it will mesh with your other devices. Honing in on these key factors will ensure you get a portable WiFi router you’ll use again and again.Can it give you enough battery life if a power source isn’t available?
It’s mankind’s biggest collective struggle in the modern age—the constant raging against the dying of the battery. From phones to laptops, tiny battery icons taunt us from their top corner perches, slowly bleeding down until their red bars inform you that you’d better wrap it up, save your data, and hurry to an outlet before all of your work is lost.
Although a lot of portable WiFi devices can be powered via USB, you may find yourself in a situation where WiFi is needed but a USB-compatible device may not be available. Here’s where to find a mobile hotspot that will cover you even if you have to rely on battery power.Are you looking for portable WiFi you can use immediately without fuss?
The main selling point of portable WiFi is convenience. Whether you want portable WiFi for travel, or you’re looking for a strong connection when you happen to be away from your home base unit, you need something you can rely on that won’t be overly complicated or difficult to manage.
Finding a mobile WiFi router that puts user interface first and foremost will ensure you feel comfortable using it again and again, and that you get the most out of it every single time. Look for devices that have easily-readable screens, simple navigating, and convenient information accessibility.How fast do you need your WiFi connection to be?
Perhaps the biggest reason to invest in a portable WiFi router is that you intend to download or upload files on a regular basis, and need both the speed and convenience of a strong WiFi signal to do it. A smartphone alone is fine for emails and texts, but for anything bigger or more complex, you need a fast Internet connection without question.
It used to be you’d need to be hard-wired to process anything bigger than a few megabytes, but there are options available now that can deliver fast upload and download speeds even if you are on the go.Are you a Verizon customer looking for portable WiFi?
Depending on where in the world you live, you may have a lot of public WiFi hotspots available for your use. While they allow you to access WiFi without an Internet provider, they do come with some security risks. If you have a specific cell or internet provider, you can access private WiFi hotspots that offer premium prepaid internet access that’s much cheaper than using mobile data, and more secure.
There are some mobile WiFi devices that are geared specifically for one provider—say, for example, if you are a Verizon customer. Being able to connect to a service you already use can save a lot of hassle, and help you avoid having to use insecure, public networks that could expose your data.Best portable WiFi device on a budget: What you can get for under $50
Portable WiFi devices aren’t, generally speaking, among the most expensive pieces of technology. Even the higher-end devices usually sit under $200, so finding the best portable WiFi option on a budget isn’t too difficult.FAQs Q: Can portable WiFi replace my home internet?
The short answer is: Yes, it can. Doing so could save you money on internet provider packages and contracts, but keep in mind that if you live in a household that tends to go heavy on internet usage (say, a family where it’s not uncommon for a TV to be streaming in one room, someone Internet surfing on another, and people playing online games in yet another), it’ll be tough to find a mobile router up to handle it all.Q: Do I need a new data plan for portable WiFi?
Not necessarily. Most portable WiFi devices operate with SIM cards, which allow you to get internet access even if you don’t have an internet provider at all.Q: Does portable WiFi work without service?
Yes, the purpose of a mobile router is to be the source of connection to the Internet, without having to rely on your phone’s service connection.A final word on shopping for the best portable WiFi
The ease and convenience of a mobile WiFi router really can’t be overstated. Having the ability to connect to the internet with home computer speeds anywhere in the world opens you up to all new possibilities—whether you need it for remote work or for frequent traveling. Knowing your own usage tendencies as well as what kind of work assets you need (are you sharing simple Word Docs or do you need to traffic in heavier images or video?) will go a long way towards narrowing down your selection. Once you find the perfect mix of portable and reliable, the world is your oyster.

There could be varied reasons for getting a screen recorder. Some of you might want a screen recorder to record gameplays or tutorial videos. At the same time, some might want it for professional purposes, such as recording training, meetings, etc. There are plenty of screen recorders for Windows 11, due to which things become quite complicated.
If you’re also searching for the best screen recorder for your Windows 11 PC, then you’ve landed at the perfect guide. Here in this guide, we’ve discussed the best screen recorders for Windows 11 in detail.
How To Choose the Best Screen Recorder for Windows 11
These are some important factors you should consider while choosing the best screen recorder for your Windows 11 PC:
User-Friendly Interface: The first thing you must look for in a screen recorder is that it comes with an intuitive user interface, so you don’t need to spend several days just to get used to its UI. Otherwise, it may affect your overall workflow and productivity.
Features: Of course, the screen recorder should allow you to easily record your Windows system’s screen. But other than this. It should also allow you to record your webcam as well as system sound & microphone. Nonetheless, it must come with other essential features as well, such as video overlay, real-time preview, PiP mode, etc.
Basic Video Editing Features: Other than screen recording, it should also allow you to make necessary edits to your recorded videos. For instance, it should let you crop & trim those videos. In addition, it should let you add annotations and captions to your videos to make them easy to understand.
Price: Most screen recorders come for free with all essential features. But if you find premium screen-capturing software, then make sure it’s worth the cost. It offers features that aren’t present in other screen recorders.
Best Screen Recorders For Windows 11
Here are some best screen recorders for Windows 11 that we found trying, and you can also choose from them.
1. Snipping Tool
The first screen recorder on our list of the best screen recording apps for Windows 11 is Windows 11’s integrated Snipping Tool. Snipping Tool is a basic screen recording tool that lets you easily capture your entire system’s screen and a custom part of it in a video.
The best part about Snipping Tool is that it’s very easy to use, as it comes with an intuitive interface and very limited features. You can easily access it in the Snipping Tool app and start recording your desired window or region.
But at the same time, having limited screen recording features is one of the biggest drawbacks of this tool. It misses many essential features, such as webcam & audio recording, annotations, screen recording scheduler, and many more.
Besides this, there’s nothing much to mention about this screen recording utility. Simply put, it’s a great tool for someone who needs a free screen recording tool just to record the screen and nothing else.
Easy to Use
Ability To Record the Entire Screen and a Particular Region
Lacks a Lot of Essential Features
Movavi Screen Recorder is the second screen recording software on our best screen recorder for Windows 11 list. It’s a powerful and feature-packed screen recorder that enables you to easily record any window with ease.
You can use this screen recorder for varied purposes, such as recording gameplays, tutorials, meetings, training, etc. It’s pretty easy to use Movavi Screen Recorder, as it only comes with necessary features that don’t feel overwhelming at all.
Once you install Movavi Screen Recorder on your system, you immediately start seeing a simple and clean widget on the edge of your system’s display with some options in it. You get several options in the widget, which includes the Screen Recording option too. One thing that’s worth mentioning about Movavi Screen Recorder is that it lets you record videos at 60 FPS.
Not only this, but it also comes with an integrated Noise reduction feature that automatically eliminates microphone background noise during the recording. You can also change the audio quality as per your requirements before pressing the Record button.
One thing we liked the most about Movavi Screen Recorder is that it lets you record your webcam along with the screen. This makes it the perfect screen recorder for people specifically looking for a screen recording app to create tutorial videos.
Like other software, it also lets you record a particular part of the system’s display as well as the entire screen. Other than this, it also highlights your mouse’s cursor while recording the display. Hence, it makes the video easy to understand and follow.
Movavi Screen Recorder has a Scheduler feature that lets you schedule screen recording. We didn’t find any real-world use case for this feature, as we can’t predict when we’ll need to start the screen recording. Other than this, it also lets you record your webcam individually.
Everything is great about this Windows 11 screen recorder. But if you go with its free version, you may face disappointment, as it adds a large watermark in the middle of the video. You can only get rid of it by buying its premium, which is budget-friendly. Other than this, it’s a perfect screen recorder.

One thing that’s worth mentioning about EaseUS RecExperts is its GPU hardware acceleration support, which lets you record better quality videos using the least system resources. Similar to Movavi Screen Recorder, it also lets you schedule screen recording.
It also has an Auto split feature that automatically splits video files once they cross a specific video length or size. Other than this, EaseUS RecExperts also has an Auto stop feature that automatically stops the screen records once it touches a particular time stamp.
One of the best parts about EaseUS RecExperts is its game recording feature that lets you record gameplay with the webcam and microphone sound. Lastly, it also lets you record entertainment websites, such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Disney, Hulu, and others. Overall, EaseUS RecExperts is an excellent screen recorder that’s perfect for all kinds of purposes.

Though, it’s a free screen recorder. It comes with basic screen recording features that one would ever need to record a screen. Before talking about its features, let’s talk about its workflow first.
It’s very easy to use Screen Capture, as it comes with an intuitive user interface. You simply need to move chúng tôi , press the Start Recording button, and choose the window or tab you want to record. That’s it!
Once you do this, the screen recording will start. After ending the screen recording, the recording will immediately show up on your screen. You can then download it locally on your system.
Even though it’s a free online screen recorder; it still lets you include your face in your screen recording via your webcam. Not only this, but it can also record videos with the system’s sound, including your microphone. Now, coming over to its limitations.
Screen Capture automatically adds a huge watermark at the bottom left corner of the video. It can only be removed after buying its premium. Also, Screen Capture misses a lot of essential screen recording features, such as annotations, custom screen recording, video editing, screen scheduling, and more.

The last screen recording software on our best screen recorder apps for Windows 11 list is Recordzilla. Recordzilla is a renowned freemium screen recording app that lets you capture your system’s screen into a video. It has many screen-capturing features.
First, let’s talk about its user interface. No doubt, it features a simple and clean user interface. But it’s too outdated and vintage. You may feel like you’re using Windows XP’s programs.
To start the screen recording, you need to press the Record Now button. That’s it! The best part about Recordzilla is that it supports keyboard shortcuts, which you can use to quickly stop/pause the screen recording with keyboard shortcuts.

Furthermore, you can also change the input audio device. For instance, if you’ve connected your headphones to your system, you can select your headphones from the given audio devices. Once you do this, it’ll only record the sound coming to your headphone’s mic. Like other screen-capturing software, it also lets you modify the audio quality.
Recordzilla also supports webcam recording, but here’s a twist. Surprisingly, the free version doesn’t support this. You need to get its premium that we didn’t find worth the price.
Lastly, it also has a built-in Screen Recording Scheduler. Simply put, Recordzilla is a decent screen recorder but for basic screen recording purposes. You can’t do much with it, especially with its free version, as it has very limited features.
