Sound

My GoPro Hero 6 has really bad sound quality even when played back onm ycomputer is it not very clear and sounds like we are speaking in a box any ideas if I can't fix it I have to take it back because I need good sound as well as video for my channel.

Re: Sound

Try correcting the audio with audacity (free editor) or increasing the DB in your editor. To be able to retain waterproofing the mics are covered with a waterproof membrane. Usually I can get decent audio just by increasing the DB or correcting in audacity. For extremely important audio moments, I use my Zoom H2 and/or Rode Videomicro.
