It the mic adaptor really that bad?

Hi,

I use a GoPro for vlogging. Unfortunatelly the embedded microfone of the GoPro is alfuw, so I decided to buy the microphone adaptor to use an external mic.

It was working fine at the beggining and the sound was great now, but it is almost impossible to vlog while walking on the streets. The adaptor is well attached to the GoPro, but I've lost many videos as the microfone just seems to disconnect (and GoPro doesn't indicate that). I've walked on the streets talking for 2 minutes. The first minute was fine, but then the sound disappeared. It seems that, while walking, the viration makes the microphone to stop working.

 

Anyone else has this kind of problem? Both GoPro and the adaptor are new.

 

Thanks,
