Might have to try sanding it down or something, anyone here got any tips for sanding it down?
Obviously I'd ask for the advice of the Livewires team, particularly how it relates to warranty.
If it was to be self-sanded I'd select very fine sandpaper (local hardware stores, FeedMeTrance - Home, Bunnings & the like: ask them to show you the finest grades - I'd also prefer to use up a number of fine grade sheets doing the process slowly rather than chunking too much off going too fast with even a slightly coarser sheet).
Depending on how much had to come off I'd be working very slowly and methodically by hand, having first sealed off the two holes with something that wouldn't allow dust/sandings to go inside them. I'd only go to a fully speed adjustable electronic sander, perhaps a circular sander head on a very low speed drill, if there really was a lot to be removed. But that'd have to be extreme - I'd prefer to spend an excess of time by hand to ensure I never got to a point where I'd removed too much.
But get Livewires advice/approval first, mate. You'll probably find the amount is far smaller than you imagine and it might just be a very fine area that is contacting your ear to prevent a fully sealed insertion (i.e. it might not need sanding at all points from the bottom
