Hello, @greg931. The portion you identified is a speaker and not an obstruction. The microphones are located as shown in the image below.

You’re absolutely correct, the one on the right of my image is a speaker. But is the one on the left a speaker or a mic?

Neither.  It's just the normal shape of the GoPro thru which you can see part of the chassis.  This is more of a venting area to allow airflow around the camera to aid in cooling and prevent condensation.
