GoPro mic adapter

Does anyone know if the GoPro usb/mic adapter cable has any voltage on it for powering electret mics ?
Also, does it work on other equipment with micro usb in ?

Re: GoPro mic adapter

It is unpowered.
You can do a web search and find the pinouts to make your own cable.
Many people make one with power in plus mic in.

Not sure about the second part of the question.

First part, yes, the USB/Mic/AV adapter cable delivers plugin power to a stereo electret mic. Still sounds like garbage however, with burbling self-noise constantly audible, at least on my HD3 and my previous HD2.
