The DJI Osmo Action camera, will it work with third-party 3.5mm USB-C adapters, or not?

A frustration that consumers still hold for the DJI Osmo Pocket is that third-party USB-C to 3.5mm microphone adapters do not work with it, does the same hold true for the new DJI Osmo Action?

At a premium price-tag of £35/$35 for the official DJI accessory, consumers felt obligated to hunt for cheaper alternatives but very few work successfully, infact the majority do not.

We have tested a third party 3.5mm to USB-C adapter with the DJI Osmo Pocket as well as the latest DJI Osmo Action camera and unfortunately our testing was unsuccessful, this is frustrating for consumers and we hope that DJI may in the future consider future devices for compatibility with third-party adapters.
