Thanks for such a thorough guide! Would you happen to know where I could find replacement parts without buying whole units on ebay?

Your welcome! Not sure where you can buy just replacement parts at the moment. Best bet would be to buy a unit for parts on ebay or amazon.

Soak the earbuds in rubbing, isopropyl, or ethanol at 50-70% concentration for an hour. Let it dry out for an hour. The solution will remove salt and other residue from sweat, which causes one side to lose sound over time.
