These are all products I personally use or have used, and I highly recommend for all reporters. I like simple and streamlined products. I don’t have the patience for batteries and checking that they’re working, except for my machine and laptop, obviously. But any product that can carry my reporting “crap” and keep my cables and plugs and wires all in order, help me reach electrical outlets, record audio, keep track of my jobs and expenses *cough, cough, the Reporter’s Planner sold here!* WOW!

USB Converter for headphones and microphone
I’ve been using the Audio Grabber microphone for a few years and have been loving it. It doesn’t need batteries and can record speakers in courtrooms just as well as in deposition rooms. Anything that can put my mind at ease while trying to take down 15 people are talking at once — okay, a slight exaggeration of the number of speakers, but sometimes it feels that way!
Are you a Court Reporter? Need to find the right microphone? We have help for you. If you are on a budget we have a great deal for you. The Audio Grabber microphone is an exceptional microphone designed for court reporters who are on a budget but need a good microphone.
So there’s been a lot of confusion lately over which court reporting microphones are the best for court reporters. For over 50 years now Martel has been producing high quality, reliable court reporter microphones. The sound reproduction of voice is most important to steno writers. If the audio is not clear the record may contain mistakes in the record. We understand this and we know you are relying on us to provide a quality audio sync recording. That is why we manufacture our microphones here in southern California.
If you have been searching for an inexpensive steno deposition microphone we have the solution for you. This microphone is on sale for $59.00. The full retail is well over $100. This is a limited time offer so hurry.
There has never been smarter boundary microphone than the Conference grabber microphone from Martel. The Conference Grabber Boundary microphones are the high-quality solution for a range of applications, such as, depositions, courts, altars, boardrooms and distance learning centers.
Pick up range of 30 feet in a circular pattern. Every Conference Grabber Boundary microphone features one of the new anti shock silicon feet to eliminate noise from air conditioners, and people hitting the table. The super cardioid cartridges give you superior clean, noise free quality sound options for every installation. Attractively designed with a low profile, professional appearance. Boundary microphones, “the smart choice” for just about every application. Take a listen today! Money back Guarantee.
If you have had a Sony mic, a Sound Grabber or most other conference microphones, the Conference Grabber is nearly 30 Percent more powerful and much smaller.
The Conference Grabber microphone is a great choice for people who are recording in deposition rooms or conference rooms. You can hook more than one into a single socket with a Y cable microphone splitter.

SMALL WHEELIE CASE
My all-time favorite little steno machine case is the Zuca Skipper. It’s zippy and holds all of the essentials without weighing me down. I’m four-foot-nothing and have always had trouble getting those darn machine cases in and out of my SUV trunk.
Okay, so everyone has had a chance to use every kind of headphone out there in the course of their careers. Besides the fact that my dog likes chewing on mine and I always seem to misplace them, I love these inexpensive earbuds. They do a great job to cancel out external noise, too!

I use this to make exhibit labels during depos. It’s a huge help when you see them walking in with a stack of exhibits!
