Essentially they are the same recorder except for the Olympus DS-9000:

  • Does not have in-built WiFi to send audio - needs to be USB connected
  • Does not come with a dock or main power supply, use the supplied USB cable to charge the rechargeable battery and to transfer audio or
  • BYO dock, if you own a discontinued DS-7000 you can re-use that dock.

The Perfect Blend of Premium Features and Ease of Use

The Olympus Australia DS-9000 professional dictation system is designed to increase efficiency and streamline operations in any professional medical or legal dictation environment. Packed with premium features and intuitive controls, it’s easily manageable and secure.

Enhanced Speech Recognition Accuracy by Intelligent Dual Microphone System

The new Olympus DS-9000 incorporates low noise omni-directional microphones and Shock Resistant Mounting which reduces touch noise from your hand. The Triple-Layer Pop-Filter blocks the speech wind noise when talking into the microphones. Dragon speech recognition accuracy is dependent on the signal-to-noise ratio of the recording, which means achieving a clearer voice and lower noise are two key factors. The Beam Forming function works to suppress noise from surroundings, enhancing the voice. Strong directionality is achieved through the Intelligent Dual Microphone System which actively monitors and analyses the phase difference while recording. Users can choose three different modes, Dictation for Quiet Environment, Dictation for Noisy Environment and Conference Recording mode.


Enhanced Security

The Olympus DS-9000 256-bit AES encryption system protects you digital dictation  from unauthorised access. This is supported when recording in the DSS Pro (.ds2 audio) format. This encryption standard meets the high-security standards set by governments worldwide. In addition to securing the data, the Olympus DS-9000 device lock feature protects the device from unauthorised access by utilising a 4 digit PIN code.


Full Workflow Integration

Packaged with next-generation Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS R7) software for Windows 10 (and DSS Player Plus v7 for MacOS) compatible with Nuance Dragon speech recognition software, the Olympus DS-9000 is designed to become an essential part of any office’s dictation workflow directly out of the box. Support for up to 32 index marks per dictation file makes it easy to locate critical information.


Intuitive Controls

Since the optical slide switch is the most used part of the device, it is essential to offer a durable and reliable switch in order to support our customers in a professional environment. The optical slider simplifies the structure of the component to reduce the potential risk of defect, offering excellent usability at the same time.


Impact & Alcohol Wipe Resistant Body

The body is designed to withstand an external shock to ensure it supports day-to-day work in a professional medical environment. The device can resist damage from a drop of 1.5m high. In addition, thanks to the alcohol resistance finish, the device can be wiped with alcohol based cleaners or the like.
