The Siberia X300 features SteelSeries signature retractable microphone which winds up in the left earcup. The boom is flexible enough to be bent in any convenient direction yet stiff enough to be easily pushed back into the earcup.SteelSeries Siberia X300

The earcups have one joint with the headband. This doesn’t give the Siberia X300 a great deal of mechanical flexibility. The holes on the outside of the earcup serve no functional purpose on the Siberia X300.

Additionally, on the left earcup towards the back is a microphone mute slider.SteelSeries Siberia X300
