Sennheiser Shows Off First-Ever Waterproof GoPro Mic

Audio specialist Sennheiser gives GoPro users an external audio option. 

Sennheiser released its MKE 2 microphone, the company's first external microphone for GoPro, last year, but we thought we'd hit them up to check it out. The microphone is completely waterproof up to 1-meter (3-feet) and the included windjammer has been tested at speeds up to 60 MPH to help reduce any unwanted ambient noise. It's quick to install and perfect for HERO4 cameras. 

If you're looking for improved audio on your GoPro, watch the video above to learn more. 

Tech Specs

  • 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response
  • Weighs 45g (0.1 lbs) 
  • Omnidirectional oick-up pattern
  • Waterproof up to 3-feet

As a scuba diver I can say this mic is pointless. ¡Just 1 meter!
