Sena Bluetooth Audio Pack adds voice recording for GoPro cameras

Wireless add-on allows for on-the-fly commentary

Ever wanted to add some color commentary while recording video clips? Bluetooth audio specialist Sena Technologies has announced a new add-on for GoPro Hero3 and Hero3+ cameras that allows you to overlay additional audio feeds on to your videos in real time with no extra editing required.

Sena's new Bluetooth Audio Pack plugs directly into the back of a GoPro Hero 3 or Hero 3+ camera, replacing the optional LCD touchscreen with a Bluetooth-enabled microphone bridge that pairs with any compatible headset or microphone. Once set up, users will then be able to narrate video clips as they're recorded from as far as 100 meters away.

According to Sena, the Bluetooth Audio Pack can also handle multiple Bluetooth audio feeds when set up in an intercom system.

The system uses an additional USB plug to connect the GoPro camera and Bluetooth Audio Pack so stock cases will no longer work. Naturally, though, Sena offers its own compatible versions in both waterproof or open air configurations.

Retail price for the Bluetooth Audio Pack is US$99 / €99 / AU$99 including the standard frame case or US$129 / €129 / AU$129 with the waterproof housing.

James started as a roadie in 1990 with his high school team but switched to dirt in 1994 and has enjoyed both ever since. Anything that comes through his hands is bound to be taken apart, and those hands still sometimes smell like fork oil even though he retired from shop life in 2007. He prefers manual over automatic, fizzy over still, and the right way over the easy way.
  • Discipline: Mountain, road, cyclocross
  • Preferred Terrain: Up in the Colorado high-country where the singletrack is still single, the dirt is still brown, and the aspens are in full bloom. Also, those perfect stretches of pavement where the road snakes across the mountainside like an artist's paintbrush.
  • Beer of Choice: Mexican Coke
  • Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA
