New Sennheiser waterproof action mic - solution for bad sound quality?!

Just heard about a new action microphone that Sennheiser developed in cooperation with GoPro. Hopefully this is the long awaited waterproof solution for a natural and clear sound in a wet and windy enviroment. Do you think that this product can deliver what it promises???

Sennheiser already introduced this action microphone at the NAB show and the current IBC:

As far as I can analyse the pictures, Sennheiser will offer a back housing including the waterproof microphone. There is probably a direct mini USB connection build in the housing. In my opinion this could be a really good sound solution for wakeboarding/skiing/mountainbiking, due to the fact that Sennheiser is known for high-quality sound.

 

I'm curious about your opinion :)

 

By the way are there any serious and better alternatives in the market?
