What do you do to reduce it?All microphones sound more or less the same at low speeds. Getting good audio at over 60 mph is a whole different ball game. Most of my riding is between 60 to 90 mph, and getting rid of wind noise at those speeds is tough as hell. I think I got close to figuring it out last fall. I will do more testing this spring. I also have an FDR-X3000, and just started experimenting with a headphone volume control hooked up to the microphone. The volume input on the FDR-X3000 is way too loud, so I think that volume control might help, but the main problem I have is wind noise.
I have a mic adapter already and I think I'll get one with the mic as well. Old mic was from DealExtreme and it was pretty much garbage, but it was like 2 bucks so meh.It takes a little button battery.
You can get a usb to mic adapter for the gopro, I use that same mic on my Hero3 as well.
I remember seeing the menus of the Hero 5/6 having mic options including accepting powered mics. It would be weird if my Hero3 takes them but a hero 5 won't.I am quite interested in the powered mics, do they have a 3.5mm jack and work on the GoPro Hero 5/6 do you know?
