Professional Dictation, Simplified.

Record your voice and manage dictation workflow with enhanced clarity and increased flexibility in any environment.

With advanced features including WiFi technology, a superior noise canceling system, and enhanced structural integrity, the DS-9500 will simplify your workflow and improve dictation management efficiency. WiFi capability enables you to send dictation immediately to your transcriptionist without a USB cord, docking station, or computer. 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 including breath "pops" and wind vibrations. This ensures superior accuracy and enhanced workflow efficiency.

Encapsulated in a 1.5-meter (4.9-ft) shockproof body and equipped with an optical slide switch, the Olympus DS9500 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-9500 provides trusted security for your most sensitive information.


• WiFi compatible for immediate file sharing with transcriptionist

• Intelligent dual microphones suppress unwanted background noise

• Triple-layer sound studio pop filter blocks breath and wind vibrations

• Certified up to 1.5-meter (4.9-ft) shockproof body

• Alcohol wipe resistant body

• 256-bit file encryption with DSS Pro audio codec

• Directional stereo recording optimized for conference settings





Managing workflow and sending dictation via WiFi accessibility provides increased flexibility and improved efficiency. Pairing with your personal hot spot or office network provides real-time file sharing with your transcriptionist. Status of transcription files can easily be checked on the DS-9500.


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.


An included studio quality pop filter reduces additional noise from wind and breath noise, enabling more accurate transcription and professional, high quality recordings.


A reliable body design resistant up to a 1.5-meter (4.9-ft) fall dramatically enhances the lifespan of the DS-9500 in heavy use environments. An optical slide switch reduces the risk of mechanical failure.

    Great Quality!

    Posted by Sanford Leon on Oct 31st 2022

    I use this product to record my voice dictations for transcription purposes. It's a great product and has been working flawlessly for me. It recorded my voice perfectly at a moderate volume and in a noisy environment.
