Hero5 Black Mic Adapter - Out Of Stock

The Hero 5 mic Adapter has been out of stock everywhere online since I bought my GoPro 2 weeks ago. What is the hold up GoPro? The price for one used has rocketed to + $129. This is a lame dongle that should be a max of $19.99. There doesn't appear to be an alternative. I am dissapointed. Has anyone else been tracking the inventory of these things? How long have you seen them out of stock?

Re: Hero5 Black Mic Adapter - Out Of Stock

The stock fluctuates. I wouldn't waste the money ordering off of amazon or ebay at the inflated prices. The Hero6 is rumored to be announced on Sept 28th. We should be seeing new stock coming around that time. You can also try contacting the GoPro Support Team, but I've found they don't usually have dates, just general ideas as to if/when new stock should come in. https://gopro.com/help/PKBContactus

It appears the mic is now in stock, and at a discount! https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/pro-3.5mm-mic-adapter/AAMIC-001.html

Amazon is fine for the initial 30 days, but for the complete 1 year warranty that you get through GoPro, it's much more convenient to purchase through GoPro.com.

The topic was not about amazon, but the OP finding the adapter out of stock, "everywhere online".

I disagree. I've never had an issue with the GoPro support and by purchasing through the GoPro web site, you don't have to worry about holding on to the proof of purchase if you have an issue at some later date.

 Amazon  can simply return no hassels,   as well ship back  for free then pay for shipping. some of the quirks outside gopro.      dis or agree it is what it is  

 

Per topic it was amazon out of stock so if this was  at gopro out of stock...
