DJI Osmo Pocket Audio Adapter Enables High Quality Microphone Input

Unlock high quality sound recording on the DJI Osmo Pocket with the latest audio adapter accessory.

The DJI Osmo Pocket is a very popular tiny camera and gimbal setup. It’s portability, 4K slow motion and smart features make it an ideal choice for vloggers, and traveling. Built in to the device are internal two microphones but with no audio input connector, this limits the ability to record high quality audio recording with an external microphone.

Connect Your Video Microphones

The DJI Osmo Pocket 3.5mm Audio Adapter is now available to purchase, which converts the USB-C connection on the bottom of the device into a 3.5mm mini-jack input. Small on camera microphones such as the Rode VideoMicro or Sennheiser MKE400 can now be used with the device; an ideal solution for portable video setups.

The downside to the adapter is it’s protrusion from the bottom of the Osmo Pocket. It sticks right out the bottom, which is almost asking for it to be knocked or snapped. A right angle adapter may have been more applicable for the device, which may have less chance of breaking.

Some DJI Osmo Pocket owners may argue that the price for the adapter is a little too much, but it is a small price to pay for much higher quality audio recording with external microphones.

The headline reads: “Enables High Quality Microphone Input”. Please check such statements, or make them recognizable as advertising from DJI.

We have tested several microphones with the adapter in a German forum. With one exception – a lavalier microphone – the level had to be raised by about 25 dB during post-processing. The sound was then very compressed and muffled. It is very time-consuming to save the sound of the Osmo Pocket during post-processing.

The problem is also discussed in the DJI forum:

Thank you for some real research instead of regurgitation of marketing bullshit.

The trick is this…Is it actually shipping?! All my DJI accessories are on endless backorder for months now.
