Olympus DS-9500 Digital Voice Recorder with ODMS Release 7 Software


The Olympus DS-9500 is a digital voice recorder with ODMS Release 7 software designed to deliver convenient, secure, and versatile voice recording for office workers, interviewers, electronic news gatherers, and A/V technicians. Its dual-microphone setup incorporates selectable modes that modify the directivity and noise cancellation parameters to suit different environments. An integrated three-layer pop filter reduces wind noise picked up by the mic, which offers adjustable sensitivity and voice-activated recording. A 3.5mm mic input is provided for connection of a preferred external mic.


Use the backlit 2.4" color TFT LCD, cursor pad, and programmable buttons to configure settings such as recording format, indexing, and more. The DS-9500 can record in PCM (WAV), MP3, DSS, or DSS Pro formats to the 2GB of internal memory or SD/SDHC cards up to 32GB in capacity. AES 256-bit encryption is offered with the DSS Pro format. Monitor through the built-in dynamic speaker or connect your headphones to the 3.5mm output. Files can be transferred over USB 2.0 or Wi-Fi.

The internal Li-ion battery can be recharged via USB 2.0 or the supplied AC adapter. The DS-9500's durable body is shockproof to 4.9' and is easily cleaned. Utilize the ODMS (Olympus Dictation Management System) to streamline your workflow, manage your files, and more.

Wi-Fi Capability
Wi-Fi capability allows you to send dictation immediately to your transcriptionist without a USB cable, docking station, or computer. Status of transcription files can be checked on the DS-9500.
Dual-Microphone Setup
Intelligent dual-microphone technology optimizes the directionality and noise-canceling system for different environments. Use narrow directionality for accurate voice capture of a subject in a noisy space. Use wide stereo directionality to increase the pick-up area and record multiple subjects in a room.
Integrated Pop Filter
The integrated triple-layer pop filter reduces wind and breath noise for cleaner, more distinguishable recordings.
Shockproof Body
The reliable body design is shockproof up to 4.9' and enhances the lifespan of the DS-9500. An optical slide switch reduces the risk of mechanical failure. The body is also resistant to damage from alcohol wipes.
AES 256-bit file encryption with the DSS Pro audio codec and a device pin lock provide additional content security.
Multiple Recording Formats
Record in DSS, DSS Pro, WAV, or MP3 file format according to desired recording time and quality settings. Take advantage of voice-activated recording, adjustable microphone sensitivity, and full-duplex recording with headphones. You can even insert, overwrite, append, or partially erase files!
Advanced Features
Utilize up to ten author IDs, 20 work types, selectable priority, verbal comments, and per-file index marks. Play in slow, normal, or fast speed, adjust volume, and cue/review.
Administrative Settings
Customize accessibility, set alarms, program buttons, and set a personalized welcome message. Citrix, WTS, and Thin client support is provided.
Compatible Software
The DS-9500 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 to 10.13, and with Windows XP and later. It includes a license for Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS) for comprehensive workflow enhancements, automation, file management, and more.
