The Ultimate Court Reporter Microphone in the World!

 HGM-2 has extreme pickup range and quality, in addition to a built-in battery tester. This ensures you a worry-free day of crystal-clear audio. Never again switch out that battery just because you are unsure of its charge.

As the most powerful microphone in the world for Court Reporters, the HGM-2 will get you at least triple the audio pickup of any other microphone being sold today. Most computers and digital recorders come with an inexpensive microphone that will only pick up voices from 2 to 3 feet away. There are a number of reasons for this, such as lack of power to the jack where you plug the microphone in. If your microphone doesn't use a battery, then it's made for dictating (speaking within 2-3 feet of it). The HGM-2 utilizes a high-power battery that lasts 600 hours and allows the microphone to actually track voices up to 85 feet away while filtering out background noise such as air conditioning and paper shuffling.

Once you've experienced the quality of this microphone, everything else simply pales in comparison.

What makes the HGM-2 court reporter microphone so special? The court reporter microphone utilizes a hearing aid IC chip to actively track the human voice, making it the #1 selling court reporting microphone in the world. The software in this court reporter microphone raises the human voice and lowers the background noise. This is extremely important when you are scoping to understand what is being said.

In the past couple of years, there have been a lot of cheap copycat microphones from other companies; Martel microphones are the best and the original. Martel court reporter microphones are manufactured in California just like Apple products with cutting-edge technology, designed for reliability and sound quality.  If you need a microphone for a steno writer or laptop you will be amazed by our sound and, more importantly, be part of our Martel family for life.

    Even better

    Posted by Lori R. Official Court Reporter CSR on 7th Nov 2019

    This is replacing my prior Martel mic, which suddenly died after daily use as a court reporter. Though it looks exactly the same as the one I’ve used for the last five years, it definitely is quite improved and the sound is amazing.

    The HGM-2 is the best mic out there for the Luminex. Audio is crystal clear. I can monitor using this combination with earbuds for better-than-room clarity. My only choice by far!

    HGM-2 Court Reporter Microphone

    Posted by Carol A. Official Court Reporter on 17th Sep 2019

    This is an excellent microphone. It is the third one I have purchased over years of reporting because the range of audio is amazing and very clear. It’s an expensive microphone, but to me it’s worth every penny when you depend on clarity. I also enjoy having the battery tester attached. If you don’t see the red flash, it’s time to change your battery. Very easy to monitor the battery level.

    So Powerful

    Posted by Jen T. on 27th Aug 2019

    I was amazed how clear this microphone sounded. I was picking up attorneys at the end of a 30-foot table. I would recommend it to other court reporters.

    Superior sound

    Posted by Meredith H. CSR Official Court Reporter on 28th Jun 2019

    I had the HGM-2 and traded up for this one. While it is a bit pricy, I feel it is well worth the cost. The sound is really clear. It's better than the HGM-2
