aparently its an issue at 10-20mph too. the important part is that its worse than the hero 3 no matter what settings are used.

I'm using the windslayer (http://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/windslayer-foam-windscreen/AFRAS-301.html) on my Hero 3 to get rid of wind noise (not possible to change audio settings on that model).

 

Here's an idea: Might be possible to 'tailor' a windslayer so it fits the Hero5. You should be able to source it cheap on ebay i.e.

Re: Hero5 black wind noise

I've been having the same problem....very frustrating when you are trying to incorporate sound as part of video. What I did is remove the camera from case and Velcro it onto my helmet...afterwards it worked great. Its the case that is the problem. Need to some how come up with better case.

well one top hole is blocked  and the side holes may be off set or  two small.
