Included with this microphone is the Andrea Audio Commander software, which includes very effective active noise cancellation processor activated with simple click of check-box! No difficult to setup adjustments! This is an important feature for Court Reporting and other business recording applications. Details below....

Attention Court Reporters:

Have you heard claims from other manufacturers that their mics are the best? Try this mic (and theirs if you like), and if you are not 100% convinced that this microphone produces stronger, clearer audio than any other microphone, we will gladly give you refund! This is the #1 choice for professional Court Reporters! Wondering why our microphone is $100 less than others claiming to be the best? So are we! In the past years, over 6000 Court Reporters in the USA have purchased Sound Professionals USB microphones (and all of our USB mics are made in the USA). Ask other professionals in your field they will tell you how good these microphones really are!

This microphone has an amazing amount of amplification and can produce recordings that sound three times as loud (strong) as other USB microphones. The difference in sound level and clarity is dramatic. The advanced active noise filters (defeatable) will reduce unwanted ambient room noises from your recordings.

This microphone also has blue recording indicator light so that you know you are recording audio. No guessing! This microphone also features amplified live audio monitoring with your headphones (even when not recording!) to help you hear so it works like an audio amplifier for you.

You never have to worry about batteries running out on you during that important trial or deposition! This microphone was designed especially for the professional Court reporter and works with all Audio Sync programs.

Have you "upgraded" your computer recently and found that the audio in the new computer is not as good as your old machine? You are not alone. This microphone goes around your computer's internal soundcard and all of the audio processing is done right inside the microphone. This frees up processing power on your computer to run your software and will help the computer to run faster.

For times when you need to be discreet, you can plug the mic right into the computer's USB port (or USB hub if you are out of ports). Or, you can use USB cable to move the mic away from your computer it's up to you. This mic can work both ways for you.

Need more convincing? Don't take our word for it see what Eclipse Guru Keith Vincent has to say about it:

Keith Vincent's court reporter review website (Eclipse)

This is an all-in-one high quality USB microphone, capable of picking up all of the sounds in large room (range of approximately 100 feet) or it can pick up small area its up to you, because you control the amplifier power! It's small size makes it perfect for situations where you don't want to draw attention to the fact that you are recording audio right into your computer.

If you don't already have Windows compatible audio recording software, you can download the full featured shareware CDWAVE software program to use with this mic for recording high quality audio here. For Mac users, Garage Band works well.

For multi-track recording, you can download this program instead

5 out of 5 stars Perfect for depositions! 00/00/0000
Reviewer: Anna Steinert   (annasteinert@earthlink.net) from San Francisco, CA, US
I'm a California CSR, and I have been reporting depositions for 15 years. After years of dealing with fussy external microphones and internal sound cards -- it seems as though the newer-model computers are even worse -- I decided to try out a USB microphone. This is the BEST quality sound I've ever been able to get with my CaseCatalyst AudioSync. It can pick up an atty with a soft-spoken voice at the far end of the conference room making a lengthy objection -- yes, we've all been there -- and somehow seems to eliminate a lot of the background noise. I also use it to playback the testimony. It has a jack where you can plug in a speaker or headphones. Because it bypasses your computer's sound card, it is much clearer. I absolutely LOVE this microphone. I can't imagine ever going to another depo without it. P.s. For CaseCatalyst users, adjust the "skip quite noise" level. It's the diagonal bar next to the speed setting. I brought it all the way down, and it works perfectly.

5 out of 5 stars USB MICROPHONE 00/00/0000
Reviewer: Elia   from NY
I am a reporter in New York. I had a microphone from CASE but I decided to try out a USB microphone. This is the BEST quality sound I've ever been able to get with my CaseCatalyst AudioSync. I absolutely love this microphone. I can't imagine ever going to another depo without it. It will work without fussing with the realtime in CASE, with another USB microphone, you have to close out of CASE and reopen CASE and go in the realtime to put the audiosinc back in default to hear your testimony... but with this USB, you never have to worry about that. instead of spending hundreds of dollars and then buying this microphone, do yourself a favor and just buy this one instead.

5 out of 5 stars Love the mic 00/00/0000
Reviewer: Joann Naify   (maybach101@aol.com) from San Mateo, CA
I'm a court reporter in Northern California. My court reporting software company sold me a mic which I was quite unhappy with. I've since purchased two mics from The Sound Professionals. Just bought the SP-USB-HG one. It's absolutely wonderful - picks up voices from the far end of a very long conference room table. I couldn't be happier! And the technical support I've gotten is invaluable. Everyone there is patient & helpful.

5 out of 5 stars The Best Audio Quality 00/00/0000
Reviewer: A viewer   from Virginia
This mike has the best audio quality for sound sync that I have ever used. I use the longest cord I could find, I think it's a 10 foot USB cable, attached to my Gemini Revolution Grand, and tape down the mike on a nearby desk, in front of the quietest speaker in the room. Then I use a digital recorder with a USB fused in it, for back up. It's great not to have to use the back up!

1 out of 5 stars excellent mic, but... 00/00/0000
Reviewer: A viewer   from Los Angeles, CA
my husband purchased this for me when my last mic was no longer compatible with my new laptop. i've been a freelance court reporter for 10 yrs and have never had a problem with audio before. when i used this mic for non-work situations, the sound quality was incredibly clear. however, for depos, i was struggling to understand the speakers, made worse by ambient noises such as air conditioners. i've been struggling for the past two years to find out the problem, even speaking to software reps at conventions, scouring forums, and calling tech support at sound professionals numerous times. they were very nice but unable to give me a solution. i finally spoke to tech support at another company, who told me not all mics are compatible with the audiosync in court reporting softwares. had i known this, it could've saved me a lot of grief and money.
