    Removing a speaker from the faceplate is always risky. If You do not need the faceplate anymore, then it is better to cut it into pieces, and remove it that way.

    If You measure the line resistance with a multimeter, it is 75Ohm, not 150. I believe the left and righ speaker is connected parallel. So Nokia phones do not have to drive 150 Ohm, they see 75 Ohm. If it is the case, then it is not stereo. It says "dual headset" on the package too.

    Try heating it, the glue may get more flexible. Then this is my preferred tool. It can be found in kitchen drawers, bars and pubs: This is how to use it on buds: The firs tool is best for PK shells but it depends how it grabs the cover.

    I am looking for paracord / fabric / textile cable, that looks like this: I could take apart a cheap earphone but the jack is not even plated, and the cable itself looks very thin. So far I haven't found it on Ali.

    To reveal what is behind the different colored dots on the various PK1 redfilm drivers I have I made a series of measurements. Again, these are only comparable to the frequency response graphs on the same screenshot, and my test rig is not perfect. These were the candidates: I soldered these...

    Oh, yes! :beerchug: Also a multimeter will help to match driver impedance/resistance (select the ones that matches best).
