Hero 8 black mic popping/crackling

I’m getting an inconsistent crackle/popping sound on my mic. Im using the media mod with a mic directly into it and I’ve tried 3 different lav mics in various different positions with various different deadcats (foam and fluff)mainly use the hero8 for motovlogging so I’ve now purchased the mic adapter to replace the media mod but I’m having the same issue!
I’m now worried it could be a faulty port on the GoPro itself?
