Accurately record the sound of any event with the Olympus WS-853 Digital Voice Recorder. 

This compact digital recorder is ideal for capturing business meetings, lectures, conferences and more.

Directional stereo microphones with a 90° layout deliver a stereo feeling that captures even the smallest details of a meeting regardless of where the person speaking is located in the room.

The 8Gb memory can store up to 2000 hours of audio files. The Olympus WS-853 also makes it easy to to transfer files to a PC or laptop by plugging in via USB, which is also used for recharging.

  • Less noise, more sound
    The low-cut filter efficiently eliminates lower-frequency noise such as air conditioners, projectors and outdoor wind to allow for even clearer voice recordings.
  • Convenience and clarity in every recording
    A built-in stand on the back of the audio recorder makes desktop use even easier. It helps to reduce surface noise and keeps your recordings perfectly clear.
  • Optimized settings for optimal results
    Ensure fail-proof, high-quality recordings by choosing the scene in which you want to record. Your recorder then instantly sets the right audio recording parameters. You can also add simple accessories to the device for perfect telephone recording and for converting analog cassettes to digital.
  • Never miss out on anything with longer battery life
    With reduced power consumption and an extended battery life, the WS Series digital voice recorder is more convenient than ever.
  • Now everyone can be heard.
    The voice balancer feature makes softer voices louder while keeping louder voices below a given level, ensuring that playback is clear and consistent. It simultaneously eliminates the low and high frequency ranges of a recording to enhance the speaker's voice even further.
  • Find what you're looking for
    Saved audio files are automatically marked with the date and displayed in calendar format, making it quick and easy to search for files. Plus, a dedicated calendar button allows for immediate viewing.
  • Learn foreign languages with ease
    Speech shadowing is an effective way to leam a foreign language - allowing you to repeat what you hear right after hearing it. This mode combines audio playback with silent playback in succession to help you easily learn any language.
  • Enjoy crisp, clear playback
    Ideal for recording meetings, the noise cancel function powerfully reduces unwanted ambient sounds for crisper, clearer playback quality.
