Can I connect a mic to my hero+

My hero+ doesn't record audio worth a darn. Can I connect an external mic? I tried recording with the waterproof back on it and all I get is muffles.

@russelld23113 - I don't believe the external mics will work on the HERO+. They will work on the HERO4, HERO3, and HERO3+.


The waterproof door is going to limit the audio quality some. If you're not doing something where the camera needs to be waterproof, using an open backdoor or The Frame ( will allow the audio to get directly to the mics.
