The AKG tabs on the sides should have tiny slots on the bottom. A jeweler screwdriver can fit in the slot and carefully lift the tab up. The tabs are stuck on with adhesive and you may end up peeling some of the paint off the tab. Not the best by any means. Go slow. There is a single screw under those tabs.
You'll have to remove the ear pads to reveal more screws on the face.
They are pretty easy to undo. You just have to clip the wires, de-solder, and snake new ones through and solder. These are actually a very easy pair to work on.
They may differ a bit from the 272. You always have to be careful to not de-solder the voice coil. If you don't feel comfortable with that, you may want to have someone else do the repair.
