There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However the is a downside. Due to it not having a 90 degree bend at the connector it WILL wear and fray if you use it often on a helmet as there is no way to mount it without bending the wire. It is not fun having to spend the money to replace it every year but until they come out with a good 90 degree version or you step up and spend the money for the Bluetooth back to connect the Sena Bluetooth to the GoPro then there really isn’t a choice. A GoPro branded 90 degree version would be great.
This adapter's USB connector should either use a right-angle connector or they should make an official right-angle specific adapter (all the non-official ones don't work). I can appreciate people use these camera's for a million different things but I can't think of too many where someone would prefer to have a 2" plug sticking straight out the right out the side of the camera making it almost impossible to side mount close to any surface. My particular use cases is that I want to close mount my GoPro on the right side of my helmet. Using this adapter causes me to use all kinds of GoPro connectors to extend the camera far enough away from my helmet to give this thing the clearance it needs. At 20mph it feels like I have a parachute strapped to the right side of my head. I've gone through 4 third party "adapters" that solve the form problem but all fail to function with this adapter or the GoPro itself. Booo.
the adapter gets you a external mic jack that you can barely use if at all. And gopro tech support told me to send the unit to them for repair. "repaired" unit STILL has the issue. The problem seems to be poor grounding or internal grounding in the adapter.
Please beware. Use your money on the zoom handheld recorders and record audio with that. I feel like a video without audio is worthless unless its a jeb corliss video that you can put music in the background so it essentially limits your options on what you record.
It is kinda funny that my microphone is essentially bigger than the gopro itself. The shorter cord length of the adapter is also a good thing as I don't necessarily need to worry about having to wrap up the cord itself.
Just remember to purchase an audio cable to plug in to the microphone(if your device requires one for the line out audio
(For those wondering, I also use the Qunqi Aluminum Alloy Protective Housing Case in order to mount my condenser mic and a tripod onto my GoPro!)
(FWIW I paired it with the Neewer clip-on lav mic from here on Amazon. Works great.)

I'm using it with a GoPro Hero 3. When plugged into the camera without any microphone attached, there's electrical interference recorded on the sound track. That's not a good start.
When I plug a Rode Lavalier microphone in, things work pretty well but when I plug the Rode VideoMicPro in, things aren't quite so perfect. Sometimes it records random rumbling noises, almost like wind noise, but indoors under test conditions. This doesn't happen when I connect that same microphone to other cameras.
The quality of the cable is okay, but not fantastic. It feels like the connectors are going to come loose within a couple of months. I'd rather than just made it a solid mini usb to 3.5mm jack without the wire between them, that's going to be the failure point. Ideally they'd make it a solid piece at a 90 degree angle.
Overall it's okay, it goes what it's meant to. But for the price, I'd like a better quality adapter and no sound issues.
So why am I telling you about a cheap skeleton housing when the chances are you’re reading these reviews to see if the official cable is worth the money? Well, if you’ve bought non-official GoPro accessories, the chances are you’ll buy the non-official cable. The non-official cable will probably fit your non-official housings and mounts too. I tried to save a few quid by buying a non-official skeleton housing and this official cable, which resulted in me having to modify the housing to get this cable to fit. Lesson learnt, you get what you pay for and this cable is no different. It’s ridiculously expensive for what it is, but if you need one and have other official mounts and frames, you can be comfortable that it will work and fit.
GoPro you are too expensive, but the equipment you supply works. So a big thumbs up for GoPro. :-)
In the photo you will notice that I have put a red maker tape on the GoPro cable to distinguish it from the cheap ones so if in a hurry I don't grab the wrong cable. I know I should throw the cheap cables away, but I'm a bit of a magpie and you never know when you might need a Mini USB plug.
But unfortunately it was useless,
did not work.
Then I did a bit of research and discovered so many people are having the same problem with third party ones.
I wish I read those comments before buying.
So my message is,
ONLY BUY THIS OFFICIAL GENUINE OVERPRICED 3.5MM MIC ADAPTER (call it rip off price if you want to)
AS THAT IS THE ONLY RELIABLE ONE AT THE MOMENT.
you have been warned!
