Question about Shure E4C Consumer Headphones
Usually it's the ground wire feeding into the earpiece that fails. The soldered connections on the driver are usually good. Shure charges $109 plus shipping to repair E4Cs that are out of warranty. I expect that they just replace the earphones with an enitirely new set.
I just repaired two sets of E4Cs that I have. I managed to open the earpiece, unsolder the connections, re-strip the wire, flux and solder and put on new shrinkwrap protection on the cable. They're not cosmetically perfect anymore but they work prefectly.
I just found out how to open the E4's.
What you do is, unscrew the metal cap that holds the angled earbud tube in place. Note that the tube itself can't be turned.
Then remove the metal ring behind it as well as the small rubber ring.
There is a 'hinge' at the cord end of the earbud, so what you should do is take a very sharp knife (I used a scalpel) and pry the top off the earbud from the end that had the ring mounted by inserting the knife between the top piece and the metal element. Note that it's attached with a little glue, so it will take some coaxing to get off.
