Mic adapter out of stock

[ New ]

There is another thread about this, but it is marked as solved. This is far from solved, you cannot buy this anyplace accept from people hyper inflating the price to over 300 US. Its bad enough you have made it impossible to use any other adapter and made them so expensive. Then you make one that is propably the worst design for a action camera. Plus you dont even have them available so we can use higher quality microphones.

There is no place I can find out when this will be available. You guys really need to fix this issue and give us some hint as to when we can expect them to be available. For what I need for my over priced gopro hero 7 to do is impossible. Please give some idea when I can buy the overpriced, over sized manditory adpater.

So as a gopro representative you have no idea when they will be available. Then you recomend me to go to Amazon to buy one from people who are hyper inflating the prices of these adapters. Why would you send me to a third party to buy a product made by you? What kind of product support is this?

Has anyone tried calling the factory to ask when they will be available? Then you won't need to say you have no idea

The problem is there is no alternative, in case you haven't heard NOBODY has them in stock. The only people selling them are ripping off your customers by jacking the price up hundreds of dollars. They are selling them for almost as much as you sell the cameras.

 

If you don't want to let us use external microphones just say so. Then new customers will know and not end up with a camera that we cannot use a upgraded external mic.

And looking back over these threads...............they have had supply problems for months on the mic adaptor. I have read some going back into March/April. I have just ordered my GoPro and accessories within the last few hours and am SERIOUSLY contemplating cancelling the orders. Because the manufacturer (Gopro) don’t seem to be able to support customers by being able to supply a lead.

May I know where you bought yours? I've just checked gopro site and still out of stock. I don't want to buy those ridiculously priced mic adapters on amazon/ebay.

Hello, is there anyone there who cares???

Has anyone contacted the factory???

Has anyone noticed you have been out of stock almost 6 months????

 I posted this thread a week ago and suggested maybe picking up the phone and calling the factory. Then three days later you emailed me suggesting I tag it saying it has been solved, lol.  I guess nobody really cares that your clients are being raped by people selling these things at as of today 327.00 USED. Can the administrator who might read this (if you guys actually read or care) please move this thread up in priority. I also suggest the rest of us who are getting more and more upset that we cannot have good audio without being ripped off. Post here how upset you are or not if you think this is good business. I am giving a link to show I am not pulling this rip off price out of my behind.

100% agree..............Go Pro are selling a product (Hero 7 black in my case) that has naff (putting it politely) audio. So the only way to get decent audio is via their mic adaptor cable (that ONLY GoPro make..............so NO third party sources allowed/able to supply). There have been availability issues since early 2019........................here we are coming up to August 2019 and nothing...............Customer services seem INCAPABLE of responding or providing answers to this thread................which it quite frankly DISCGUSTING !!!!!! 

 

I mean............Customer support..................just isn’t...................supporting the customer with regards to this issue

Okay...........may help or not (don’t shoot the messenger). Just got a message from Amazon UK (I stuck an order in with them. Because they come back with an estimated ETA). So they have said that they should have item in betweeen 5/8 and 15/8). If you are in. The UK you can place an order on them (they don’t take the money until the item is shipped - so it’s minimal risk). If I get any update I will share.
