Review of Sennheiser MKE2 Mic for GoPro by Linus Tech Tips
Popular tech reviewer Linus Tech Tips took a look at the newly released Sennheiser MKE2 Elements Microphone for GoPro HERO4. As you can imagine he was pretty excited about the possibility of a quality underwater mic. Sadly, the tests didn't quite live up to the hype.
In reality the mic is not waterprooof but rather water resistant (think snow or fog). It's an interesting review that you should definitely check out if you're looking for a decent mic that can deal with elements like wind. But it's definitely NOT suitable for underwater work.
It's the only GoPro compatible endorsed mic and comes in at $200.
