Good resource for tear down pictures and info:
52audio.com

It's a chinese site but google translate is your friend.

Modified my Sabbat X12 Pro's with a regular 14.8mm earbud driver.


Using a razor blade I took the front cover off, it is attached in 4 spots. The circuit board and battery lift right up. Did this to check wire lengths. Glued cover back on with e8000 glue.

Popped driver off with razor blade. Pulled wires through for ease of soldering. They were pulled through long on the other side, the driver was probably installed first at the factory.

One side done.

Both done. Driver covers are glued back on with non-hardening and easy to remove 'e8000' glue in 3 spots about 3-4mm long.

An extra 1.0mm hole was drilled by hand for increased venting of the earbud driver. It can be seen at about 1 o'clock from the original vent at the bottom of the opening for the left housing.

That’s awesome great job! Have you seen a Anbes 359 mod there? I really want to be careful it’s my all time fav TWS. My batteries are still good, but one day caput.

No, never seen a 359, r18 or other clone teardown.


Edit: also just noticed, but should this thread be moved to the DIY section?
