Can I connect a hydrophone to the ROV so I can listen to the audio on my connected
laptop?

If you search for hydrophone you will find several protects where people are working on making low cost versions for OpenROV.

The later versions of the ROV have spare wires that can be used too hook up just about any payload you want.

Software needs to be written to have the beagle bone take the audio and send it top side and there is a preview of such a plugins floating around in the forum as well for the built in camera mic.

If you do find one and get it mounted be sure to share. If you need help with connecting the software I am always happy to help.
