Gopro 3.5mm mic adapter only playing through right side

[ Edited ]

Gopro 3.5mm mic adapter only playing through right side when playing back a video and sound is poor. I have a cheap adapter that works fine through both sides? I have a Gopro Hero 4 Silver with a dagee dg-001 mic.

Re: Gopro 3.5mm mic adapter only playing through right side

Hey @Anonymous what do you mean it only plays throw one side? So are you playing the sound on to a speaker? The built in Speaker on the HERO4 Silver only has one. If your recording with a external mic to the HERO4 Silver, you need to have a compatible mic and mic adapter. If you need more infomation on was will wo0rk, and won't work make sure to reply back.

I've been experiencing this same problem with an external USB mic which is supposed to work with the GoPro. When I play back the video I am only getting audio play back out of my right speaker.

Please rfer to the video. This external mic can be connected to usb port of gopro.

GoProとRoland WEARPRO Micでバイノーラル録音してみました。いままで波の音などのGoProの音声には不満があったのですが、バイノーラル録音したら海で聴いた波の音がそのまま再現されてて感動しました! オープニングロゴは松本さん https://youtu.be/izm0Kb9Sfas が作成したものを使用させていただきました。ありがとうございますm(__)m

Hey @richroadies,

 

Bummer to hear you are having some trouble. What kind of mic are you using? Does this mic utilize the 3.5 mm Mic adaptor or does it plug straight into the USB? Have you tried using a different external mic at all?

 

If the camera's recording is fine without a mic, than it points towards the adaptor or the actual external mic. Let us know the details and it may help point us in the right direction. 

 

Cheers,

Re: Gopro 3.5mm mic adapter only playing through right side

Hi its an external mic with its own mini usb connection which doesn't required an adapter.

 

I've been using a 3.5mm mic with the GoPro adapter which works perfectly though. It seams the GoPro adapter is not a generic piece but does something else to make the audio work compared to a standard 3.5mm to mini usb.
