While I have no plans to get the Hero 2018 in every review I have seen the audio quality of the Hero 2018 is SUPERIOR to the Hero6. The Hero5 got a lot of negative feedback on the audio quality, but not much changed with the Hero6 audio wise.

 

But the Hero 2018 has literally crystal clear audio compared to the muffled audio ofthe Hero6!

 

But video is superior on the Hero6 so not much reason to get the Hero 2018.

 

Hero7 will probably be a nice audio experience as well s premium video in september. :-p

i hadn't heard that before, but watching the video the Hero does seem alot better (watched some other videos & they give the same conclusion)

 

If i get 5 minutes tomorrow i'll compare, the Hero with the 5 & 6 Black's

WOW, did a quick test with them all last night. As you can see i didn't get them completely syncroziced, but its close enough to be able to make a comparison. All video was done at 1080@60, protune off, mics on auto (5 & 6, Hero doesn't have the option). No additional editing for sound or picture, all raw files then straight into Corel Studio 2018. then straight to Youtube.

testing the audio recording between GoPro Hero (2018), Hero 5 Black & Hero 6 Black sorry the synchronization isn't perfect

I think it's preferable to have an audio test where someone just speaks/reads at the camera from like 1 meter distance.

 

Lots of loud music will only stress the limiter circuits.

i did the test at 1am so wasn't loud, & only played from my iPhone so certainly not breaking any db limits lol
