Clever Earbud Microphones Bring 3D Audio Recording To Your GoPro

GoPros have fundamentally altered the way we think about video — we’ve never been closer to the action. The audio for the extreme footage we’re capturing, however, has yet to catch up to the action footage. Roland’s new Wearpro Mic is a step towards making the videos sound as intense as they look.

GoPro's Drone Prototype Is Producing Incredible, Beautiful, Stable Footage
