Introduction

If one or both of your earphones are not working, this guide will show you how to safely disassemble your headphones so that you can check for a connectivity issue between your headphone wires and your ear-cups.

Parts

No parts required.

To begin, we must remove the ear-pad on the ear-cup. Do this by gently pulling at the edge of the pad where it meets the plastic of the ear-cup. Separate the padding from the entire circumference of the ear pad.

Here you can see in the red markup box, the wire is not connected to anything inside the ear cup. This could be a reason that sound if not coming out of one, or both your earphones.
