Honestly going to GoPro 4 with Sena backpack has worked for me. The only issue I have is the Sena 20s won't provide sound from the GPS or Music while hooked to the backpack so if I want to vlog I have to stop and turn it on and when done have to stop and turn off. Minor inconvenience, can't find the 5/6/7 mic adapter so was really my only choice. I need to work on the wife's mic though as I can hear wind when riding over intercom but never hear any in my vlogs.

So what is the best microphone to get to plug into a sony or gopro camera (mic adapter) - that's essentially a 'plug and play'? I don't want the functions, or the expense, of a Sena communicator etc.

I use cheap voip mics off Amazon:


They don't last forever, but are cheap, so I buy a few at a time and swap them out when they break. Generally the more expensive the microphone, the worse it will work in a in helmet setup as they are designed to be lapel or desk mics and are too sensitive to have by our mouths in a helmet. The cheap ones are less sensitive, so don't clip or distort as badly.

That is what I have found anyways.

I am brand new to vlogging and my first attempt went well minus...my audio. I as using a Purple Panda into a Sony PX-312. After messing with settings on the Sony I got what I consider to be really decent audio. I am interested in feedback on my first attempt. I will get it up on the site soon.

FWIW, I have done multiple audio tests (see my channel's "Moto Vlog Gear Setup" playlist for those with half helmets (should work similarly with 3/4 helmets).

A lapel mic can be used, but works best in conjunction with a faired motorcycle, slower speeds, and some clever placement. My latest videos are really quite good in my opinion, especially given my particular setup.

I may try to obtain a SENA 20s mic over the winter and try it out in the same setup to see if it's any better, thanks for the tips!

I know this thread is going on 4 years old, but ahh! Seeing the diagrams, I think my Mic got twisted up at some point and is now pointing in the direction of the wind, causing excessive wind noise to appear on some newer videos I have been working on. Thanks for posting this!

Great post. I've been trying to find an alternate mic and Amazon wasn't offering anything more than the lav mic. I'll look for these sena mics.[/QUOTE]
