Sound in any Condition - Complete your GoPro Recordings
Whether used for mountain biking, surfing, or snowboarding - GoPro cameras are the tool of choice for creating spectacular video. The rugged Sennheiser MKE 2 elements microphone now enables users to capture the thrill of the moment with a sound quality that is just as incredible. Based on the technology of the renowned MKE 2, this action camera mic can take up the most challenging situations a mic can face in extreme sports. It will help you tell the whole tale. Plug it in - and: action! Now your audio will be as exciting as your GoPro video.

Add that missing Element
It's the sound that really takes you there. With the Sennheiser MKE 2 elements you can capture the breathing of an athlete, the roaring of a breaking wave, the grit under the tires of a mountain bike. clear, crisp, contoured sound. Conveying emotion and atmosphere.

Care about your Video, Not about your Mic
For the Sennheiser MKE 2 elements, water is not an issue. It can cope with upto 1 bar of pressure, and reliably records underwater sounds, ready to pick up voices again the very moment it resurfaces. Wind noise is probably the worst enemy of any outdoor recording, and outdoor sports take wind noise to an extreme level - however, this is no problem at all for the MKE 2 elements. It features a special windshield that reliably protects against wind noise, even when it is wet.

As a GoPro is often mounted to your gear, there is a lot of unwanted rumbling and handling noise. Therefore, the Sennheiser MKE 2 elements includes a custom-made shock mount that reliably protects the microphone from structure-borne noise such as vibrations of the housing. In brief: Don't worry about the mic, it will go anywhere your GoPro goes.

Unique Selling Proposition
As there are no other microphones approved by GoPro® and there are no other audio companies in that program, it is simply the only existing microphone solution for a HERO camera that allows to record sound while sustaining the sealed protection of the camera. And yes, it does work under water up to 3 feet.

Target Group
GoPro® HERO4 videographers working with encapsulated cameras.

The current model Sennheiser MKE2 elements is compatible with the large number of HERO4 cameras (Both silver and black) sold, but not with the HERO5. It also fits when using the optional HERO4 extended battery.

The GoPro® HERO5 camera works completely differently to the HERO4. It has a different microphone input format, audio processing and mechanical dimensions. Based on our ongoing collaboration with GoPro®, we are currently working on solutions for the HERO5 camera.
