At first, I wasn't sure about the solder balls. Then I realized they are used to anchor the USB and Power Interface pins on the outside of the Headphone to the internal circuit board.

I had to used a soldering iron to remove the solder balls, so that the internal interface circuit board could be removed. I had to also remove solder from the speaker wires to free up the internal circuit board.

The internal circuit board was also attached a MEMS Microphone that appeared to be monitoring the Speaker Chamber of the Headphone, since it was faced in. I had to remove the outside panel with 'R' on it with a Razor Knife to free the MEMS Microphone. Once the MEMS Microphone was freed, the interface circuit board could be pulled out
