What is Magnetic Mic?
Magnetic Mic is “the magnetic holder for your microphone” that enhances safety by reducing distracted driving. It helps drivers stay focused on the road when picking up and returning a CB or police radio mic to its holder.
Magnetic Mic virtually eliminates the risk of finger and hand injuries caused by worn, sharpened hangup mic clips; helping increase safety and uptime in any industry that relies on radio communication.
What is included with each Magnetic Mic?
Magnetic Mic is sold as a Single Unit and a 25 count Bulk Pack. Each Magnetic Mic comes with the necessary hardware and complete, easy-to-follow instructions.

Magnetic Mic isn’t a replacement microphone?
No, Magnetic Mic is a microphone accessory – a magnetic holder consisting of a magnetic base for your dashboard or console (that replaces your conventional metal hangup mic clip), and a disc-shaped adapter for the microphone itself. Magnetic Mic is designed to work with your existing microphone.
Why do I need Magnetic Mic?
The main benefit is safety: Magnetic Mic helps you stay focused on the road when picking up and returning your radio microphone to its holder. It was invented by a police officer / driving safety instructor who noticed his trainees taking their eyes off the road for critical seconds when they picked up and hung up their police radio mics.
Magnetic Mic also increases flexibility for vehicle setup. You can install it in areas of the dash and console that are traditionally considered less-than-optimal for a microphone.
Today, Magnetic Mic is used by more than 55,000 law enforcement, fire, EMS and commercial vehicle drivers. Anyone who uses a radio microphone will benefit from Magnetic Mic.
Where can I install Magnetic Mic?
You can install the Magnetic Mic clip on any solid surface that’s within the driver’s reach, free of obstruction, and away from any electronic devices that may be affected by a magnetic field. Rule of thumb: If you can fit a common, full sized microphone between Magnetic Mic and the other object, the object is probably at a safe distance.
With Magnetic Mic, you have greater flexibility for vehicle setup than with a traditional mic clip. Because you don’t actually have to “guide” the microphone all the way to the base and make sure it’s securely in place, you can install Magnetic Mic, for instance, on the passenger side of a vehicle’s center console.
Is it easy to install?
We like to say it’s “easy as 1-2-3.”
In most cases, all you need is 1 Magnetic Mic, a number 2 Phillips screwdriver, and about 3 minutes of your time. Each Magnetic Mic comes with the necessary hardware, and complete, easy-to-follow instructions.
Can I install Magnetic Mic in the existing screw holes from my old mic clip?
Yes. Just unscrew the hangup mic clip and install the magnetic base in the same holes. Magnetic Mic is compatible with virtually any microphone.
What parts are magnetic?
The only magnetic part of our mic clip is the magnetic base (part #1) that you mount to your vehicle’s dashboard (or other solid surface).
Does Magnetic Mic adversely affect the microphone’s functionality?
No. We designed and tested Magnetic Mic to work with virtually any microphone (including mobile radios, police radios, CB radios, PA systems, etc.).
Can Magnetic Mic adversely affect electronic devices?
If properly installed, Magnetic Mic is unlikely to adversely affect electronic devices. Choose a location that’s a safe distance from anything adversely affected by a magnet (such as an erasable hard drive). Rule of thumb: If you can fit a common, full sized microphone between Magnetic Mic and the other object, the object is probably at a safe distance.
Does Magnetic Mic work with radios that use a private line or scan function?
Yes, we designed and tested Magnetic Mic to be used on radios with a private line / scan function that activates when the system is hung up and grounded. We include a “grounding spring” with every Magnetic Mic specifically for these systems. Currently, hundreds of customers around the globe use these kinds of systems with Magnetic Mic.
Every radio system is unique, and some may require a setting adjustment or program change to work optimally with Magnetic Mic. Please contact the proper radio system technical support for assistance.
Will Magnetic Mic work with my microphone?
We’ve tested Magnetic Mic with every common radio on the market today Motorola, Kenwood,Harris, Vertex, Whelen, Code 3, Federal Signal, SoundOff Signal, iCom, Midland, Hytera, TYT, and more. Our more than 255,000 satisfied customers confirm Magnetic Mic’s broad compatibility.
