Looks like a part of the filter that got pushed all the way down when you tried to insert the cleaning tool. Try looking at the tube from above and see if you spot any membrane thing inside that metal ring.
It'd take a massive amount of wax to go that deep past the filter, the easiest way to diagnose is to listen if the sound gets kind of clogged up on one side, unless you punched through all 4 filters on both sides.
I'd love to hear Heir's solution to this problem as well.
case by case situation, but we have tiny vacumn cleaners here
suck the wax out, pull the damper membrane out, and place a new one.... that would be the ideal situation
