GoPro Hero 6 External mic with mono sound only

Hi, I'm using GoPro Hero 6 with the pro mic adapter and a lavalier omnidirectional mic for my motovlog.

 

Check out the sample:

 

I realize that I only get mono sound recordings instead of stereo. I read somewhere that I should get a stereo mic. Will this be the solution?

 

How can I be sure that the omnidirectional mic is a stereo mic? 

 

GoPro motovloggers out there, appreciate if you can recommend a budget friendly mic or solution for me..

 

Thanks!

I just checked my mic. There is only one single ring... I guess it’s a mono mic. Haha

Yep that will do, it's a simply overlooked thingy as gopro could have made it more simplier by auto detecting a mono and making it sterio,
