Disassembly of Sony WI-SP500's

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP



So, recently I accidentally forgot my Sony WI-SP500's in a pocket, and they got thrown in the washer, and dryer, they somewhat survived, but only the left earbud now works. I was wondering if anyone knew how to disassemble them, or know of a guide to do so? I would like to see if they are fixable or not. Pictured below is the type of earphones in question.


Best regards

Yeah, that was my fear as well, although there doesn't seem to be a reason to want to take them apart. They started working normally again. Guess they just needed to dry out properly.
