GoPro Hero+ Sound Quality

Hi,

 

Would you be able to advise how I get better sound quality/increased volume from my Hero+. As I understand you cannot remove the waterproof housing like on other models? I have started to use the camera more for low speed filming where I want to pick up people’s voices etc but it’s very muted on my camera. 

 

Thanks

Re: GoPro Hero+ Sound Quality

You'll need to find a skeleton backdoor (amazon.com has them) or just take the backdoor off. Other than that, there isn't much you can do. If you are finding that you are using the camera more, you might want to consider trading up to a Hero (2018) or Hero5/6. Personally, I'd go with the Hero6, but it's a lot more than the Hero (2018). If you like your Hero+, you'll love the Hero (2018).
