Hi @greensand08864

 

We have a list of recommended External Microphones, however we have not officially tested binaural microphones yet.

 

Thanks!

Mic is plugged into ProMic Adapter 3.5mm.

Re: hero7 black binaural recording

I just purchased the Hooke Verse to go with my Hero 7 Black and I cannot get the microphone to plug into it.  The recording cable does not fit, unless I am missing something.

Hi @toughwater25644,

 

Do you have a Mic Adapter?

You can check our website to get a mic adapter.

Re: hero7 black binaural recording

I do not have a mic adapter.  I mistakenly thought that their cord would plug directly into the GoPro.  I ended up returning it and going with an external audio recording device and will combine with the video in post-processing when using it instead of GoPro's own mic.
