      Comments about Drift HD External Microphone:

      Connected to my Drift HD, to try and get direct clear commentary on our recordings, still having problems with wind noise, with an open face helmet and shield, just trying to find the best location to mount it. Time will tell if I can make it work to my satisfaction.

          Mic was purchased for my motorcycle trips so that video and audio are recorded. Tucked in my ear piece that holds my communication system, No wind noise and you can even hear the audio between me and other riders as well as the motorcycle.

          The mic works as advertised. The wire is VERY thin, so I'm a bit worried about durability.

            Comments about Drift HD External Microphone:

            This is a necessary accessory if you're going to use the Drift Camera in the wind, such as riding moto with a helmet mount. Camera might work OK (sound) behind a windshield. had to glue the foam cover in place or it would be lost.

                Comments about Drift HD External Microphone:

                I use this microphone while recording motorcycle rides with my Drift helmet camera. I thought it would be tricky to get the sound right, but I just clip it to my lapel and go -- my voice can be heard quite clearly over the sound of the engine.

                I lost the small foam windscreen, but bought a little bag of them (they're cheap in quantity) and carry a couple with me in my bag.

                      The description of the cord did not tell it's length. It's about 5 feet long, which is a little ridiculous.
