Do I need a GoPro branded mic adapter or can I use a generic one?

With GoPro mic adapters being fairly expensive, is it possible to just buy a generic USB C to 3.5mm adapter?

Can someone explain to me why I need a GoPro branded one?

Thanks.

Hi @agilevista0214

 

We recommend using the Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter for your GoPro camera.

We have not tested any other adapters and cannot guarantee its compatibility.

 

Thanks!

Only GoPro adapters work. Don't waste your money on 3rd party adapters.

Any idea why that might be? It seems odd that a third party adapter wouldn't work.
