GoPro® users can record their own commentary onto their GoPro® cameras with the new MXL MM-165GP Lavalier Microphone. The MM-165GP works with GoPro® Hero3, Hero 3+ and Hero4 cameras. It has a rugged, low profile, right angle connector that is compatible with GoPro® cases. The MM-165GP is the first lavalier microphone for GoPro® that has the right angle mini USB connector built into the microphone cable, so no adapter is needed.
The MM-165GP is built for adventure! The microphone cable’s low profile, right angle connector prevents the wear that can occur from bending the cable. A foam windscreen is included to minimize wind noise and plosives. A bonus fuzzy windscreen provides an extra layer of noise protection in very windy environments.
MXL Director of New Digital Technologies Perry Goldstein says, “The MM-165GP is really a point-of-view microphone to go with the world’s most popular point-of-view camera. It puts the mic closer to the user’s mouth to improve the audio quality. The MM-165GP lets GoPro® users record their own commentary and reactions. Imagine giving the play-by-play while biking or skiing. The MM-165GP lets you narrate your adventures. ”
The MM-165GP is an omni-directional microphone capable of picking up sound from all sides. For the active GoPro® user, the omni pattern offers maximum freedom of movement.
The MM-165GP has a generous 5 ft. Mogami cable for sound clarity and durability. Excess cable can easily be tucked inside clothing. A clip is included to secure the MM-165GP to clothing.
In addition, MXL is releasing the MM-C003GP Microphone Adapter that allows any microphone with a 3.5mm connector to be used with the GoPro® Hero3, Hero3+ and Hero4 cameras. All MXL’s Mobile Media microphones will work with the GoPro® cameras via this adapter. (The MM-165GP requires no adapter.)
The MM-165GP Lavalier Microphone and MM-C003GP Microphone Adapter are available now.
