This allows you to have it hardwired for power and use an external mike.
That accessory works for the 8, but not the 9.
The GoPro USB-C to 3.5mm adapter is compatible with Hero9 after the December v1.5 update. I did not know this and bought it during Black Friday Sales and was stuck with wind on my track day 12/12. Their website shows it compatible with all USB C Heros Black at the time and I was unaware of the situation.

For whatever reason, they disabled it during a firmware update in Oct and it wasn't re-enabled till 2 weeks ago.


Hero9, with USB-C to 3.5mm and a 3.5mm extension with windcat on it.
