Useless

Microphone for GoPro Hero2

20 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this microphone for my new GoPro Hero2 camera. It was unclear to me how this would work for my use because GoPro recommended a powered microphone, which this is not. I'm using it in my aviation headset to capture the radio/intercom audio. It worked really well for this.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Low price, No batteries required, Omni-directional, Short cord
  • Cons: Not stereo
