Olympus DP-201
Bottom Line

It's easy to think of the Olympus DP-201 as "the little recorder that could." This scrappy, palm-sized digital voice recorder makes up for its lack of extra functions with overall reliability and a very reasonable price tag.


Packs a decent pint-sized punch. For the most basic uses, the Olympus DP-201 captures good-sounding audio. A noise-reduction feature blocks unwanted noises in some of the more challenging recording situations you might encounter, but some users report spotty sound quality in noisier settings all the same. Still, most owners say that this digital voice recorder generally gets the job done for simple tasks.

  • Very small and portable
  • Easy to use
  • No file-transfer capabilities
  • Noise in some situations
  • Quirky erase function
  • Memory can't be expanded
