Connection to the GoPro HERO4 is via a clip-on 'BacPac' 'Backdoor' shockproof module which clips onto the camera.The microphone connection is then made with a micro USB connection to the GoPro body. The the additional GoPro battery pack can still be used, which fits in the Sennheiser rear cover, or one of the two included spacers may be used.
