Introduction

If one of your Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Four speakers stops working, it may need to be replaced. To do so, follow this guide.

  • Insert a flat metal object (such as iFixit's Jimmy tool) between the green and black plastic portions of the headset.

    • When working with electronics, it's important to choose a tool that's ESD-safe to avoid accidental damage to the device. The regular black nylon spudger or a plastic opening tool should be used whenever possible.
