Introduction

This is a comprehensive guide explaining how to disassemble your headset, locate any problems with your left speaker, and repair them. This guide requires a soldering station and is very difficult. If your left speaker is broken and needs to be replaced, we have a guide for that too, but you cannot purchase a replacement speaker from the manufacturer so you will need to find a donor part. If you follow this guide through to the end you will cause irreversible damage to your headset; you will be able to reassemble a functioning device though. This repair takes from 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on how many steps you must complete. If you are not up to the task, I suggest checking out the warranty in the TRITTON Kunai User Guide to see if you can capitalize on it.
