SE Earphone Cable Removal

FAQ #4432 Updated August 31, 2017


I am trying to replace the cable on my SE215 earphones. I can't for the life of me figure out how to release the old cable and get it off the drivers! Any tips?


The cable/earphone connector is difficult to remove, and designed like this on purpose.

Grasp the earphone using a piece of cloth, like the T-shirt, between your fingers and the earphones.   Do the same with your other hand, using a piece of cloth, on the connector.  Then pull apart: do not twist or rock back and forth.   It takes 20 to 30 pounds of force to separate the two parts of the connector.
