High-quality stereo recording in all environments
In order to securely capture every sound and voice, the recorder features Omni-directional stereo microphones which capture sound from all directions, even when recording from your pocket. The recorder has low noise, high-quality microphones in its compact slim body.
"Anti-Rustle" filter reduces surface friction while recording in your pocket
Olympus' unique "Anti-Rustle" filter technology identifies the difference between voice and rustling sound by its characteristics and effectively suppresses the noise only. This removes the rustling noise generated when operating the recorder from in your pocket, to achieve a low-noise, clear sound.
Low-cut filter eliminates extraneous noise
During recording, the low-cut filter can be used to cut the sound at frequencies of 300 Hz and lower, typical examples of this being the sound of air conditioners or projector fans. This filter also proves effective when recording outside to minimise noise from wind. Cutting the lower frequency during recording ensures natural-sounding recordings without distortion during playback. The low-cut filter can be turned ON or OFF as required, depending on your recording environment.
Compatible with various recording formats
Select from three recording formats: the high-quality unsuppressed Linear PCM format (22.05kHz); the versatile MP3 format, which is used by both Windows and Mac users; or WMA format, which has good sound quality even at a lower bit rate.

"Transcription" mode is convenient for when you want to create minutes or notes from your meeting recordings, and the "Language Study" mode is helpful when learning a foreign language.
Enjoy crisp, clear playback with Noise Cancellation
The world's top noise cancellation technology is even more powerful, strongly cutting out background noise recorded with voice. With the new algorithm, this function provides more natural voice reproduction while boasting improved noise exclusion.
* Noise exclusion ratio has been tested by Olympus.
* Playback speed cannot be changed when using the noise cancellation function.
Improved Voice Balancer
When a recording contains multiple speakers, the Voice Balancer feature makes softer voices louder, while keeping louder voices below a given level, ensuring that playback is clear and consistent. This comes in handy when recording sound sources from multiple positions, such as when in a large meeting or conference. Since the voice filter operates simultaneously, the prominent noise produced when amplifying small sounds is reduced. By eliminating the low and high-frequency ranges of a recording, the speaker's voice is even further enhanced.
Create meeting minutes efficiently with "Transcription" mode
"Transcription" mode is convenient when you want to create minutes from your meeting recordings. While transcribing, it is necessary to frequently repeat play and stop to check the content. As such, when resuming playback, the recorder will automatically playback from 3 seconds before playback was stopped so that you can easily review the content you need. The fast forward function is set to a preset 2.0x speed so that you can conveniently skip the silences in your recording. Furthermore, the Voice Balancer helps to normalise the audio level when recording speakers with different volume levels in a meeting.
"Language Study" mode convenient for learning foreign languages
"Language Study" mode is helpful for when you want to learn a foreign language. To repeatedly review the content of your recording, reverse skip is preset to 3 seconds. Thanks to this function, it is not necessary to hold down the reverse button, as a simple push will reverse for 3 seconds. Furthermore, the ability to conveniently skip through the recording enhances learning efficiency. Forward skip is preset to 10 seconds while fast forward is preset to 2.0x for ideal playback listening.
Convenient Fast or Slow Playback
With fast or slow playback, the speed change is processed digitally, thus the pitch is not altered resulting in the voice remaining as recorded. The playback speed can be adjusted between a range of ×0.5 (slowest) and ×2 (fastest). The ability to change the playback speed is particularly useful when you want to quickly check meeting recordings, or when recordings need to be listened to repeatedly such as with language study. The playback speed settings are retained even when the recorder power is off, making it convenient to resume.
The recorder has many features for ease-of-use, such as "One-Touch Recording" that silently and quickly activates recording, and "Pocket" mode which is effective for recording a wide range of voices from your pocket.
