This is exciting.
Agreed, a heat gun will probably make it even easier, but I don't own one.
1. Remove the mesh.
2. Drive a screw into the metal plate opening shown in this post.
3. Use one pair of pliers to grab the housing and the other one to grab the screw. Pull carefully apart.
Edit: Illustration for step 3:
Grab the housing with a pair of pliers (red arrow on the left). Grab the screw with a second pair of pliers (red arrow on the right).
Stick a small block (green) between the pliers for leverage (anything hard enough to withstand a bit of pressure. I used a terminal block I had at hand).
Holding the pliers at the end of their handles, press slowly and carefully together (yellow arrows). Front and back parts of the housing will slide apart.
Should be really easy, if you follow the instructions. I opened up the second earpiece of my bassy Tenores in less than 5 minutes this morning.
