I have the same problem here but it is not with the earbud instead it is the cable. I confirmed this when I switched both sides of the earbud and they both did not work with the left cable but perfectly fine with the right cableI tried the ClieOS fix. Well, a variant of it since I don't have the tool ClieOS used. Instead of the pin inside the housing, nudged the pin on the cable which was causing the problem. Ever-so-lightly nudged it off center. Looking at it you can't even tell if it moved at all.
The right side doesn't cut out anymore, even when I go running with the 535. So I don't have to buy a new cable. If it works for the se535 cable, it MIGHT work for the 215 too. Try at your own risk.
I used the tiny clippers from a Victorinox Army Knife. The grey tipped thing that slides out from the housing.
Finally can go back to enjoying the music.
How do I fix this?
