Professional Dictation, Streamlined Efficiency.

Capture your voice with enhanced clarity, simplicity and flexibility, in any environment.

With advanced features including a superior noise canceling system, best-in-class file encryption, and supreme structural integrity, the DS-9000 will simplify your workflow and increase dictation management efficiency.  Intelligent dual microphones control the directionality to keep the focus on the person dictating and suppress ambient noise in offices, hospitals, cars, airports and other noisy environments. A triple layer studio quality filter ensures accurate voice capture while reducing unwanted sounds such as breath and wind vibrations. This ensures superior accuracy that enhances workflow efficiency.

Encapsulated in a 1.5-meter (4.9-ft) shockproof body and equipped with an optical slide switch, the DS9000 is designed to be a strong and dependable workhorse in heavy use environments. Complete with 256 bit AES encryption and device pin lock, the DS-9000 provides trusted security to your most sensitive information.

Speech Recognition with Accuracy, Clarity and Noise-Reduction

Intelligent dual microphone technology ensures optimization for many different recording environments. For example, in a noisy environment such as an airport, use narrow directionality to ensure the voice is accurately captured. For conference rooms when multiple individuals are speaking, use a wide directionality recording setting to accurately capture all presenters.


The  included studio quality pop filter reduces additional noise from wind and breath noise, encouraging more accurate transcription and professional quality recordings.

Motion Sensor and VCVA Technology

While the motion sensor allows the user to wake up the device by picking it up to immediately start recording, the Olympus VCVA technology automatically tracks pauses in a speaker's dictation in order to save time, power and recording space. These features are easily customized and allow 15 different sensitivity levels, providing intuitive usage and power saving options for every user.


A reliable body design resistant up to a 1.5-meter (4.9-ft) fall dramatically enhances the lifespan of the device in heavy use environments. An optical slide switch reduces the risk of mechanical failure.

    great quality product

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 23rd 2022

    I'm currently a dictation transcriptionist and the DS-9000 really does work! I've been using it for the past few months and very happy with it. I use it on a daily basis, and I've never had a problem with it. I've only used it in the office, so I can't comment on its performance in other environments. Overall, I love the clarity of the recording and the fact that it comes with the CR-21 cradle.
