I'm having this same issue as well but on the Hero 5 Session. Yes, I'm one of the people that bought one. I use it on my motorbike and have a mic inside the helmet. The recording works on the first clip but every clip after that it doesn't work.
Unfortunately, the workaround for a Session is that it doesn't have an option to turn it on separately! You can power it on by hitting the rear button but you then need to be quick enough to hit record before it powers back off and when it's mounted in the helmet, that's not an option.
The Black you can just power on and off but with the session, I haven't yet worked out how to cycle it since it powers on and off with the quick record.

Which type of external microphone do you use with your HERO5 Session camera? One way to be able to use the QuikCapture button (shutter button) when using the Pro Mic Adapter is to use a powered microphone. For more information on this, you can check this link: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/HERO5-Black-External-Microphone-Information .
We also have a list of recommended external microphones here: https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/External-Microphone-Recommendations
Hope this helps.
