External mic adapter provides no sound

[ New ]

I'm going slightly crazy here. I have a Hero 7 Black with which I'm trying to use the external mic adapter. But regardless of my setup and my gear, I can't get any sound into the camera, apart from some silent analogue-sounding "tape" noise.

 

I have set the input settings to "standard mic", which is what I have. (I have also tried the "standard mic +" but the only result is a much higher noise level.)

 

I have tried different mics, both TRS and TRRS, all of them are plainly silent. And they work just finely with other recording equipment.

 

I have even tried two different adapters; after getting no results with the first one I bought, I returned it to the store and bought another one. But this second one is also silent.

 

What am I missing? I am not using "quick capture", I have also turned off that function completely just to be sure.
