Professional Olympus Dictation Recorders in a nutshell

There are essentially three Olympus Digital Dictation recorders to consider as seen above..  If you are more than an occasional user, we can narrow that down to two.  The Olympus DS-7000 digital dictation recorder and the Olympus DS-3500 digital dictation recorder.  Here is a quick overview of the differences.

  • The Olympus DS-7000 has a slide switch for “no look” control- The DS-3500 is push button

Many of our clients demand a slide switch recorder.  When push buttons first came out, many users found themselves frustrated by hitting the wrong button and thinking they were recording when they were not.  The solution was to look to the past.  Tape based recorders with slide switch mechanisms were intuitive and nearly foolproof.  The digital slide switch was born and users love it!

  • The Olympus DS-7000 comes with a docking/charging station for ease of use. The DS-3500 does not

This simple cradle is worth it’s weight in gold.  Just drop the recorder into the dock and watch as your voice files are automatically downloaded and backed up and sent to the correct typist.   Ad Dragon Naturally Speaking and they can be delivered to your typist for formatting as a typed Word Document. 

  • The Olympus DS-3500 can also record in WAV and MP3 for two channel meeting recording.

The Olympus DS-3500 is the only professional dictation recorder to feature stereo recording.  This makes the DS-3500 the ideal conference or meeting recorder for using external microphones.   This is why we incorporated the DS-3500 into our best selling conference kit, the Olympus 355 all in one.

85% of our customers choose the DS-7000.  The extra one time cost of $100 is far outweighed by the years of frustration free productivity you will receive.

This is not us trying to up-sell you.  We support what we sell and we genuinely want you to be happy with your purchase.  Fielding technical support calls from customers who purchased the wrong equipment is expensive and frustrating for all involved.  We believe in getting it right the first time.


O.D.M.S (DSS Player Pro) Software

Included with each recorder is the New Olympus Dictation Management Software (ODMS). Easy to configure, the software allows you to quickly download and send your dictation to the appropriate transcription destination, whether in the next office or the next continent. Citrix, email and FTP capabilities built right in.



A Complete System

The Olympus Professional Dictation line-up includes both recording devices and transcription kits. For maximum compatibility, security and flexibility, transcriptionists should use the Olympus AS-7000 Transcription Kit.
