Directional stereo microphones with 90° layout achieves a superb stereo feel
By positioning the two low-noise directional stereo microphones in a 90 degree layout, the WS Series can record with a superb stereo feel. The stereo quality of the WS-Series enables you to understand the direction or location of speakers in meetings and conferences, long after the actual recording has been made.
New user interface & easy file searching with the calendar function
By utilising tile icons, Olympus have realised a more intuitive and easy to use GUI. Two function buttons have also been added to simplify changing between the various modes. The many audio files saved on the recorder are automatically managed by date. Displaying this information in a calendar format helps you find files quickly and decisively.
Optimal trouble-free recording with Scene Select
By simply pressing and holding the menu key, you can access both the recording and playback Scene Select options, which automatically configure optimal recording and playback settings according to your situation. With five recording preset modes; Lecture, Conference, Meeting, Dictation & DNS (for Speech to Text applications) and two playback modes; Transcription & Language Study, it’s possible for anyone to easily achieve trouble-free, high-quality recording and playback.
Direct USB connection with built-in microSD card slot
The recorder supports microSD cards up to 32GB via the card slot which is positioned under the battery cover to prevent dust transfer.
