External microphone using random USB C to 3.5mm adapter

Hello :)

I got my GoPro hero 5 black and i want to use an external microphone.
I did some research and found that the only way to use an external mic is to buy the "Pro 3.5 Adapter for GoPro 5".

so my question is, can I use another adapter, like the one on the picture? May Its work?

 

thanks!

Unless you know the Pin layout, the answer is NO it will not work,   reasons why gopro stopped aftermarket products . to simply keep you with the best  product around.
