audio bitrate for a GoPro

I have a GoPOro Hero 4 Silver

The audio quality records at 128kbps audio bit rate.

That is really compressed and noticable!

Is there a way to get better audio quality?

 

I'm baffled why there isn't a drop-down menu to select upwards from 128kbps and up in the usual MP3 bitrates...like a digital voice recorder. 128, 256, 384, 512, 640...this would be so awesome!!

 

My Canon EOS M ($300 camera from 2012) records at 10x the audio bitrate of the Silver 4.

I can live with the video compression, but the audio compression is not ideal.

 

So I hope there's a future fix for audio bitrate choices or else my next portable camera will not be a GoPro.

I'm a MUSICIAN and sound is just as important as visual.
