Go pro hero audio question

I have a gopro hero (original) and my question is, is there another way to get sound? When I have the backdoor closed the sound is muffled, but when open it sounds perfect. What the deal?

Re: Go pro hero audio question

Hello @gopro03220

 

Thank you for reaching out. In order to get the best audio quality possible on the HERO, it is recommended to use the Skeleton Backdoor, which comes along with the camera. The Skeleton Backdoor has a large opening in it allowing sound to be picked up more effectively. This backdoor, however, isn't water proof so caution must be taken especially in environments where the camera could be exposed to water, or dirt.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Best regards, 
Marius
