The new WS-853 features a new Intelligent Auto Mode, which is perfect for when there is a distance between the speakers and recorder, such as in large meeting rooms. The Olympus WS-853 recorder optimises the recording level regardless of whether the audio source is near or far, making it possible to record audio that is easy to listen to. Simple Mode has been added to the menu for easy, intuitive controls that are perfect for beginners. The new WS series recorders can be used in a wide range of situations, from students to business users.


High quality recording
With the ease of use found in all WS series recorders, the Olympus WS-853 achieves a highly realistic stereo feeling thanks to the two low noise, high sensitivity microphones. The new Intelligent Auto Mode provides automatic sensitivity adjustment, and a low-cut filter removes unnecessary noise from your recordings.

Superb stereo feeling of the Olympus WS-853 with True Stereo Microphones
Two low-noise directional microphones positioned at a 90° layout enable you to create high quality recordings with a realistic stereo feeling. This feature ensures that you capture the sense of direction and distance of the speakers in the recording which is useful for meetings, lectures or training presentations.

Direct PC connection without a cable
The built-in USB connector can be easily deployed and stored using the slide lever. With this feature, you can connect directly to a computer without using a cable or a software. Not only can you save and share your recordings, the Olympus WS-853 can also be recharged via USB without having to remove the battery, and the recorder can also be used as a USB memory device.

Playback functions
Olympus WS-853 has an array of playback features to accommodate your needs, such the Voice Balancer for easy listening through equalisation of volume levels.

The Olympus WS-853 recorder's new Simple Mode is perfect for beginners as it displays only necessary information in a large font, and shows only key functions in the menu.
