I was very skeptical about buying this product because of all the negative reviews. I did my research and understood i had to solder in a resister to get it to disable the internal gopro mic. When the package arrived I was very disappointed that it was not the same adapter shown in the picture. The picture shows one with a braided type insulation and an end that appears that you can open it up to get to the leads so you can solder in the resister. I gave it a shot any ways and wtf it works perfectly no messing around with the solder. I used mine with a gopro hero 4 silver and the mic I used is a Rode video micro. Maybe it only works with certain mics? The rode video micro is an unpowered mic idk if that makes a difference. Another thing i liked was that the cable fits more snug in the socket than the gopro charge cable and wont wiggle around causing shit sound. I am happy with my purchase and glad i didnt spend $20 on the go pro brand cable that doesnt have a 90 degree end and is prone to easy damage.
