But, that's off topic!
I got curious and popped off the plastic grille.
Lesson 1: when someone (such as yourself) points me to a good tutorial which includes how to pop off the plastic grille, review that link before attempting to pop off the plastic grille, or else you might do it wrong and break off a plastic tab or something.
Lesson 2: when you see a small dimple in the driver, don't sit there like a dumb-ass assuming that it was already there. Assume that the driver is the thinnest and most delicate material known to man, and that you are putting the dimples into the driver by so much as breathing on it
Lesson 3: take the damned driver off of the headband before doing any of this stuff, otherwise driver destruction is inevitable.
So, after learning my lessons, my right ksc75 driver now looks like this:
D'oh! I got it put back together without any more destruction, and I might not have destroyed the sound (although I would be surprised if not).
Anyway, now I know how to do it properly! I just have to find some appropriate screen material and glue. And maybe another pair of drivers LOL!
Edit: Lesson #4: Don't pull the cable out of your phone and leave it dangling, because then you might step on it while walking up some stairs and yank the wire out of one of your drivers. Busted wire definitely affects the sound of the drivers more than a dimpled driver. Sigh!
