Best way is clean the larger part with a earbud. The smaller doesnt make that much sound. Blow air onto the larger part after cleaning.

I use a cotton swab (q-tip). First a dry one, then I blow into all openings, next I use a damp (not dripping) q-tip (alcohol, saliva) to remove remaining wax, dirt. There are four opening on each earbud. I clean them all.
