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.

    Exceptional Dictation Recorder!

    Posted by Carrol Salinas on Sep 8th 2023

    I often find myself juggling multiple tasks simultaneously doing my job as a legal assistant. One of my daily responsibilities is transcribing lengthy legal documents and client briefs. I used to manually type these documents, which was time-consuming and prone to errors. I was amazed at how intuitive this recorder is to operate and how the audio quality is outstanding, capturing every nuance of my dictations with remarkable clarity. It's an experience that has transformed how I work, making my job as a legal assistant much smoother and more enjoyable.

    Posted by Wayne Fuller on May 4th 2023

    I decided to upgrade and buy a new dictation recorder for me. Well, besides needing an upgrade I just lost my old one. LOL. I am so impressed with how awesome this works. It was easy to work around with and it has excellent sound quality. I am now motivated to do my recording because of my new recorder. Thank you also for assisting me with the best dictation recorder to purchase.

    Executive Communications Beats Out Our Local Supplier for Service

    Posted by Stan Audette on Apr 12th 2019

    We have local retailers and service contractors for our Olympus Digital Voice Recorders; however, Executive Communications does a better job of responding and serving our needs than we can get locally ... which is why we've been doing business with them for over 12 years, now.
