PolarPro PMIC-234 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to enhance audio capture, the stereo Promic GoPro Microphone Kit from Polar Pro is a custom external microphone that attaches to the GoPro without requiring any additional mounting hardware. It provides better sensitivity and higher fidelity than the GoPro's built-in microphone - ideal for concerts, interviews, motorsports, or other times where audio is as important as video. On the HERO2 it plugs directly into the 3.5mm mic input, and for the HERO3, HERO3+, and HERO4 models there is a right-angle 3.5mm to mini-USB adapter included. The microphone powers from the camera, and does not require a separate battery that needs to be replaced. A removable windscreen is included to help reduce wind noise when filming outdoors.

    PolarPro PMIC-234 reviews

    Promic GoPro Microphone Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition for GoPro users Works great recording good clean audio. Far better than the built in mic. Yet it is not as loud as the built in mic. Some say it increases the volume of recorded audio but that is not what I am experiencing. However the slightly lower volume is well worth it since it is actually usable. The built in mic made the audio worthless in the slightest breeze.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suits the GoPro It's certainly an improvement over GoPro's built-in mic and for half the price of the lowest priced mic on GoPro's recommended mics list. GoPros have built-in dynamic range compressors so I doubt that any mic is going to work for something as dynamic as a drum solo. For the price of GoPro's recommended mics you'd be better off buying a separate device for recording audio that lets you control compression.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from COMPLETELY USELESS. DO NOT BUY IT! I'm a drummer and I bought this microphone in the hopes of getting better quality audio when used with my Gopro Hero 3+. I recorded with it, and the playback quality was horrible - far worse than with the built in microphone on the Gopro. It sounded very muted, and also produced an incessant clicking sound. A complete waste of $, and I've already returned if for a refund. This product is worthless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Mic for the GoPro I got this microphone for improving audio at concerts. It does a good job and there is a noticeable difference over the internal microphone. The windscreen makes a really big difference when windspeed is over 10mph. Tip: Make sure GoPro wifi is OFF

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought it simply for reference audio... I use a GoPro Hero 4. I'm a one person show at a government agency. I use a shoulder mount P2 camera for my primary video and interviews. I have the GoPro for action shots and for the occasional two camera shoot. Since I work by myself, if I need a two camera interview, I'll use the GoPro for the second camera since I can use the app with my iPhone to check the framing I only needed the mic to capture reference audio so I could check up on the picture, but the mic is awful. I never got enough quality audio to just make an acceptable waveform for Avid to sync the clips (a feature introduced in MC 8.5, I believe). Plus the lav is a piece of junk too. I was able to buy another P2 camera last year, so I just use the old camera for reference audio when I need a two camera shoot now, but pass on this one. This is by no means a reflection on B&H, this is the only disappointing product I've ever gotten from them. Otherwise, they're awesome.
