Great product and helpful sales department Review by John P.
Customer Service
After years of using (and losing) micro-cassettes, I was an early adopter of digital dictation. This is my third Olympus digital recorder.

My first one still works but operates with push buttons instead of a slide-switch. I use it alot, so I upgraded to a DS-4000. I used it for many years, and it still works. The only issue is it doesn't really work well with 64 bit computers.

I've been looking at the DS-7000 for a while. had a great sale so I decided it was time. I called the sales department with several questions since I was considering switching over to Phillips. The rep answered all of my questions and concluded the DS-7000 was a better fit for me. Ordering was easy and it arrived just a few days later. Only took about 10 minutes to setup the software and cradle and I was dictating again.

First impressions: I've very happy with the DS-7000. It's easy to use but also has a ton of features to make power-users happy. The new Olympus software is great!

Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase. I will be using next time I'm in the market for equipment. (Posted on 12/5/2014)
Immediate Benefits Review by Theo
Customer Service
Our firm was frustrated with the technology we had in place. Our assistants could not play our portable files until we were in the office, Documentation is a crucial part of our job, with the digital software, files travel securely into the office where files are shared to assigned support staff. It was easy to make our files available while traveling for immediate processing. We have seen great improvements in efficiency, the price is reasonable and we appreciate the quality of the recorders.

We have wanted to make a move from tapes, tested dragon speech software, neither were as cost effective or simple as the Olympus mobile dictation which fits our needs very well.

exceeded my expectation Review by Law Office
Customer Service
I am the owner of a Dragon Naturally Speaking Legal software program and an Olympus Digital Voice Recorder DS-7000. My purpose in becoming involved with voice recognition was to use the recorder when away from my computer in order to take notes, dictate letters and instructions and record statements, and then transfer the text to my legal assistant’s PC. While the system of the Dragon program in combination with the recorder initially work well, eventually we (my legal assistant and I) encountered problems in transferring text on my computer to her computer. We availed ourselves to the good people at for help in identifying the problem(s) and finding the solution. We had four potential sources of the problem, namely the Dragon program, the Olympus recorder, my laptop and my legal assistant’s PC. Recorders took the lead in identifying the problem by working with Olympus, Microsoft and the Dragon. I had the pleasure of working with and observing the competence, the empathy, with respect to my frustrations, and the dogged perseverance of the Recorders technicians as they went about their work. I especially appreciated their follow-up in checking with me on the performance of the products. We worked a lot on this complicated problem, and I got to know and appreciate, the support team. I am pleased to say that I’m now “up and running” with the software and equipment which has exceeded my expectation. I’m truly appreciative of the work of my friends at Recorders. I give them a 5 star rating!!

excellent support Review by Wendy Office Manager
Customer Service
After 25 years of Standard Tape dictation/transcription, I found during an internet search. I began chatting with Chris* (I think this was her name,,,). Chris answered all my questions completely, and offered suggestions for products that would fit the process we were looking for. I was very impressed with the level of knowledge and patience with my questions. I called and ordered all the products discussed, and in speaking with (sorry, I forgot his name), I felt certain that we were ordering from the right company.

The recorders and software all arrived in excellent condition (very rapid free shipping I might add!). After installing the software and setting up the recorders to my ability, I remembered that during both the online chat and ordering I was told that technical support was free. I immediately placed a ticket online, a very simple process. Support contacted me and over one phone call we set up 3 systems to run the automatic download of dictation. They then continued with the process, contacting our off-site transcriber and helping her walk through the process. One more short phone call, we had dictation encrypted and today we are happy as clams! The entire "Technical Support" process was the least painful I have ever had to go through. They made it very simple and worked with me to my ability. The recorders are simple, durable, and extremely fast at uploading transcription. The software is a workhorse and can do just about anything you want it to do.

I know that in the future I will receive the same excellent support I have received during the installation process. It is difficult to order products online, from a vendor you don't know. is above and beyond all others I have dealt with over the past 25 years. I would strongly encourage anyone even remotely considering audio equipment to talk with them and see what they can do for you. Absolutely a 5 star company where I am concerned! Thanks everyone!"

the clarity is excellent Review by Jane
Customer Service
We are happy with the recorder we purchased from It has seen limited usage so far, but the clarity is excellent and it is easy to work with. It’s also easy to transcribe the recorded reports. We will undoubtedly be ordering more recorders.

Your technical service department has been most helpful. Working with them is a pleasure.

Thanks much. Jane (Posted on 7/9/2014)
no comparison Review by J Herring
Customer Service
The recorder I purchased, the Olympus DS7000 is fantastic. There is absolutely no comparison with tape recorders and other imitation (cheap) digital recorders. I constantly use my DS7000 for dictation, recording meetings, and recording seminars.

While the price might frighten some folks, this recorder is leading technology. And since there are few moving parts, there is little to go wrong!

The service I received from was first class.

I recommended the DS7000 to another lawyer in Nashville and he is exceptionally pleased. (Posted on 6/2/2014)
