GoPro hero 5 black poor audio quality

Like most, I am experiencing GoPro hero 5 Black Audio problems. My belief is this is due to the over sensitive microphones on the camera. I have recently got into completion shooting matches. I bought a goprop to start recording my matches and learning from mistakes, etc. My issue is I used the newest goprop hero session (borrowed from a friend) and the sound is great! Being my first time using a GoPro, I had to have one so I bought the hero 5 black. But with the hero 5 black that is supposedly top of the line this is not the case with audio quality. The sounds from rounds firing sound muffled, vibrated and staticky.

Can someone please explain how the lowest quality GoPro is outperforming the newest in audio quality?

I know I can get an external mic and use that however that's is more money and more hassle. Hasn't the CEO came out and stated that he wants users to be worry free of videos while they enjoy their activities? I cannot do that with running an external mic!

If anyone has a solution for this please share!

crickets.... nothing but crickets. CEO is apparently only worried about getting my $399.99 for the camera.

Maybe you should post this in the Hero 5 forum. This forum is for the Hero Session.
