Take out springs from the ballpoint.
Step 3: Rip Around the Places Where Sharp Kinks May Occur
Rip the spring around the cables, as shown in the pictures, at places where sharps kinks may occur in the cable. These places are usually with the jack and with the earpiece, where the cable is connecting with some hard areas of the earpiece.
Step 4: You Are Done.
You can now check that sharp kinks cannot occur at these places. This hack will not compromise the look of your earpiece and will increase its life. Enjoy
