    Things that are great about this product:
    This Lavalier tie-clip Mic holder is sturdily constructed, and has a good amount of tension on the clothing clip. The mic clasp is also made from heavier-than-average wire, and will support lavalier microphones of varying sizes.

    Things that are not-so-great about this product:
    The size of the mic holder (in MM or otherwise) is not listed. In my case the lavalier tie-clip mic holder was too large for the wireless mic for which it was bought. To remedy I slipped a rubber grommet on the mic and am able to expand and land the mic clip in the groove of the grommet for a 'perfect fit.'

    They're cheap enough to be expendable, unfortunatly they don't hold up to abuse nearly as long as I'd like. They do the job, but have a couple on backup because the connection of the wire to the clip consitantly snaps off after a short while.

          This clip is much better than the model with a plastic "c" shape that the mic snaps into. I have had FIVE of those break before I saw this model. The mic slides I to a metal ring which cannot break like the other model.

              For anyone who is using the plastic ones do yourself a favor and replace them with these before the they break and you find yourself on a shoot taping the mic to the plastic clip with black electric tape and hoping it isn't too noticable.

                  This is the clip that should have come with the mike instead of the flimsy plastic clip that broke after less of 1 yr light use.

                  Comments about Audio-Technica AT8417 - Lavalier Tie / Clothing Clip:

                  I broke the original clip for my lapel mic which was nice as it had a pivit point for different shirt types. I got this one as it was the lowest price that would work for my lapel.

                  This unit does work well and I like how it does not have metal teeth like others which can cut your wire. Instead, it had somewhat flat clamps which still hold really well.

                  The clip does not have a pivot but I found you can usually turn the metal support bending it 90° one time and ONE TIME ONLY, (or it will break off). Now with this knowledge, I'm picking up a second one of these so I can use the two different positions for vertical or horizontal placement.

                            It's a good mic clip...but it's made for a BIG mic...so make sure you're ordering it for the mic it's made for. For those wondering...it will NOT fit a GS mic...it's way too big for them.

                                I would buy this product again!

                                  I bought this after my previous clip broke. So far it's great! The whole where the mic goes is a little big and doesn't fit as snuggly as my previous one but it falls in to place and holds up well.

                                    I like the clip! It holds up well, I just can't justify the price... I think it's too expensive.

                                      This lav mic clip has a wire loop that keeps the clip attached to the mic better than some of the other AT clips. Works well as a replacement clip for the AT829CW (plastic) AT lav mic. Paint has a tendency to chip off after a while, but a sharpie can be used for touch-up.
