Just like the HGM-1, the 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 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-2 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-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 back ground 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 copy cat microphones from other companies, Martel microphones are the best and the original. We never use Chinese parts such as Andrea sound cards.  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.

    I've used the HGM-2 for years, in my laptop and writer, and the sound is fantastic - and I've tried a lot of mics.

    Awesome Customer Service!!!

    Posted by Alan S. on 8th Nov 2016

    The support from Martel is awesome. I have a PMD661 with the transcription kit. I was having trouble getting the sound to play on my computer and Jason took the time to access my computer remotely and get the problem fixed. I never could have done this myself. At the same time Austin figured out that I had bought the wrong headphone adapters which was causing only mono sound from my machine on playback. Fifteen minutes, both problems solved, and at the same time Jason recommended an amazing backup recorder, which I purchased immediately. Forget Hillary and Donald, I vote for Jason and Austin for President and VP!!!!

    great service

    Posted by Kathy T. on 18th Aug 2016

    I have to say that Martel Electronics is great in their customer service. They were very knowledgeable with not only their product, but my CAT software. They knew the proper settings to get me up and going.
    I would recommend them to any court reporter who wants to start using their software audiosync.

    I have a élan Mira A3 and I had to turn my mic gain down from high to low. It was distorted on high but sound quality is excellent on low. Great mic!
