Can I return GoPro 5? I'm very dissatisfied with external mic quality on motorcycle

I made the mistake and grabbed the GoPro 5 Black thinking I could force it to work in my motorcycle helmet, but alas it's too much trouble since GoPro has forced me out of a wireless mic.

 

I've tried to hook up a good mic but it sounds terrible.

 

Unfortunately, I'm one day over the 15 day return policy for Best Buy.  I was slow because I had to set up the GoPro, order and wait for the adapter, get a microphone, test two other microphones since the audio was terrible, make adjustments, etc., only to realize that it's likely impossible to get decent audio with the wired GoPro 5 mic setup.

 

I had no problems with GoPro 4 and the SENA bluetooth -- the audio sounded incredible.

 

Will GoPro accept a return directly to them??  (probably not)

You should try them and see what they say before your 30 days are up.
