As the most powerful microphone on the market, the HGM-1 will get you at least triple the audio pickup of the lesser microphones. Most computers and tape recorders come with an inexpensive microphone that will only pickup voices from 2 to 3 feet. There's 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 its made for dictating (speaking within 2-3 feet of it). The HGM-1 utilizes a hi-power battery which lasts 600 hours and allows the microphone to actually track voices up to 75 feet away while filtering out background noise such as air conditioning & paper shuffling.

What makes the HGM-1 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 back ground noise. This is extremely important when you are scoping to understand what is being said.

  1. Professional Court Reporter Microphone, 1/23/2012

    Posted by Brenda G. (Newton, KS) on 4th Feb 2014

    After reading the information about the Martel court reporter microphone, I was impressed with the hearing aid ic chip in the microphone. As a court reporter I need a microphone I can count on, and Martel came highly recommended from others, so I decided to try one.

    Posted by mary reggie (hermosa beach, CA) on 4th Feb 2014

    This is an awesome microphone! I've bought 3 now. The clarity is amazing! It picks up voices at the other end of the table!

  4. Long-lasting Court Reporters Microphone, 5/25/2013

    Posted by Jenelle Bartel (Santee, CA) on 4th Feb 2014

    This microphone has worked incredibly well for me for the last 10 years. I think I've changed the batteries on it three times and have never wanted to be without its exceptional quality while taking depos. Has been great for those soft speakers, foreign accents, and expert terminology.


  5. Excellent microphone for my digital recorder, 5/8/2013

    Posted by Stephanie Clark (San Antonio, TX) on 4th Feb 2014

    I use two of these microphones on a daily basis for my digital recorders. They provide exceptionally clear recording in rooms that are not quiet. With this microphone, I am able to distinctly hear all attorneys and the witness at the conference table. Highly recommend this microphone for court reporters!


  6. Great Court reporting microphone!! Steno machines and Laptops, 4/10/2013

    Posted by Steven Brickey (Chicago, IL) on 4th Feb 2014

    I have bought two of these microphones from Martel in the past. I used to have other mics similar, but they do not compare to a Martel mic. These have far better clarity and audio quality. I have also added the radio frequency reducer toggles which further help. I have never had a problem with these mics. I just bought the USB powered mic as my third one. Highly recommended!!


  7. Great Court Reporter Microphone for my laptop!, 2/20/2013

    Posted by Laurie Abraham (Madison, MS) on 4th Feb 2014

    I have been using a Martel microphone with my laptop AudioSync for 10 years. The recording quality is excellent. I hope to keep using it for years to come. I have a little battery tester, but now they make one with the tester built into the microphone. I recommend this little microphone to court reporters for great audio!


  8. High Gain Court Reporter Microphone, 2/14/2013

    Posted by sherry marshall (saint louis, MO) on 4th Feb 2014

    I have ordered this Court Reporter Microphone before from your company. I think the quality of this mic is the best out there. It is true when it says, picks up voice from 75 feet away!!! I wouldn't want to be without this mic in my courtroom. Also, seems to still work quite well even though I've needed to change the batteries sooner. Please, please keep making this mic. Thank you. Blessings Sherry

    This is the best microphone I've ever used. It's saved me many times during technical doctors' depositions where I want to double check that I've written the correct medical term. I would never report without this microphone!


  10. Amazing HGM-1 Court Reporting Microphone, 1/7/2013

    Posted by Theresa Aguilar (Thatcher, AZ) on 4th Feb 2014

    I have been using my HGM-1 on my new Diamante machine for the last five months. It has worked wonderfully. Very clear recording. Today I ordered two more to use on my laptops in the courtroom and in chambers. The difference in the quality of recording from the microphone I have been using is phenomenal.


  11. Court Reporter Microphones HGM-1 is best on the market, 12/19/2012

    Posted by Mary White (Beavercreek, OH) on 4th Feb 2014

    I've been using an HGM-1 for five years and have never been disappointed with the quality. Sounds very clear which can be helpful when people are talking over each other. I wouldn't leave home without it.


  12. Excellent Audio - "Court Reporter Microphone", 12/11/2012

    Posted by Veronica Morrill (Auburn, ME) on 4th Feb 2014

    I have been using a Martel microphone with my laptop AudioSync for over seven years. The recording quality is excellent. You will not be disappointed by this product! I also just purchased the microphone stand. I've been clipping my mic to a business card and placing it in the center of the conference table, but I find sometimes attorneys will place their papers over it. This little gadget should alleviate that annoyance!


  13. Love my Martel HGM-1, 11/30/2012

    Posted by Kimmel McDiarmid (Pittsboro, NC) on 4th Feb 2014

    I've used other companies' microphones in the past. What a mistake! The HGM-1 is a great microphone that records clearly to my laptop so I can use the AudioSync in Eclipse. I also like that it has an on/off switch to conserve battery use. It's a great microphone for the money. I understand now there's even one with a battery life indicator. THAT will be my next purchase. But for the past two years and even now, this HGM-1 is still working great. I do recommend buying an extension wire (item #226) and filter ( item #1603) to go with it.


  14. Best audiosync microphone I've used, 8/30/2012

    Posted by Laura Renke (Chicago, IL) on 4th Feb 2014

    I use the HGM-1 microphone to record to my computer, and it makes a fabulously clear recording and has a good range. It's been worth every penny. I've recommended this mike many times to other court reporters. As long as you're careful with the cord and don't wrap it too tightly for storage, the microphone should last many years. I've had mine for maybe 10+ years.


  15. Best Court Reporter Microphone on the Market, 6/25/2012

    Posted by Cindy McKinney (Belleville, IL) on 4th Feb 2014

    I just purchased my second microphone after 6 years of use from my first HGM-1 microphone (or whatever the code number would have been at that time). The quality of sound is the absolute best in the industry, and it gives a very crisp, clean and clear recording. It's perfect for use with Steno machines.


  16. Great Little Microphone (Court Reporter Microphone), 6/7/2012

    Posted by Maxine Cleeton (Brentwood, TN) on 4th Feb 2014

    I have had two of the HGM-2 microphones for at least five years each and have always gotten great recordings. The batteries last forever! And the bendable tripod that comes with it is really nice to get away from tapping fingers on the table being recorded.


  17. Excellent Court Reporter Microphone!!, 4/13/2012

    Posted by Sara Gittins (Sanford, FL) on 4th Feb 2014

    I had my first HGM-1 for over five years. It worked great with my Fusion and now my Diamonte. I am buying a second one now to have as a spare. Picks up voices from long distances in courtrooms.

    "I have ordered Martel recorders and microphones over the last 16 years and have always found them to be of excellent quality. It seems like they are continually improving their products and that is why I always return to them for new recording equipment. My last purchase was a few months ago when I ordered the Court Reporter 5000 digital recorder with the foot pedal to be used as a transcriber and the Martel Hi Gain court reporter microphone. I cannot believe how clear the sound quality is on my recordings in the courtroom. That is why I am back to order another Martel Hi Gain court reporter microphone for my court reporting machine now. And I love the fact that I can input the wav files from the Court Reporter 5000 into my Eclipse Software files if I need to, and that I can also upgrade the memory card so high for longer recording time."
