Important Announcement for Olympus DS-5500 Owners:
Olympus has determined that a small number of DS-5500 digital audio recorders have the potential to overheat when charging, which may cause the unit to become inoperable or quite possibly pose a burn hazard to consumers and property. Although there have been no reports of injury or property damage, we are taking the extra precaution of recalling these units to ensure our customers are using a reliable and safe product. As a result, Olympus is offering a free replacement program for owners of the DS-5500 with serial numbers located within the limited lots that have been affected. Please click here for full details (link to pdf of announcement) and to learn how to take advantage of this free service.
