Let’s continue to disassemble the earphones part of the Edifier X6. The earphone is a handle-type semi-in-ear design, with the Xemal logo on the side of the shell, which is an audio brand under the Edifier. The earphone handle shell is mostly shiny, but the Xemal Logo area at the bottom is frosted, and the white version is not obvious.
On the outside of the earphone handle, there is a microphone pickup hole at the top, which is used to pick up ambient sound and assist in noise reduction during calls. The earphone supports tap control.
The pressure relief hole at the sound cavity on the top of the earphone.
The charging contacts at the bottom of the earphones handle and the call microphone pickup hole.
The pressure relief hole on the back of the earphone has an irregular shape like the earphone shell.
The metal dust-proof net at the mouthpiece prevents foreign objects from entering.
Disassemble the earphones along the parting line.
In the internal structure of the sound cavity, an insulating plastic sheet is attached to the back of the speaker.
The insulating plastic sheet between the speaker unit and the battery is used to isolate the unit and the battery.
The letter “ZY” is engraved on the speaker unit T iron.
The speaker unit size is approximately 13mm.
Button batteries are fixed with a large amount of sealing glue.
There is a dust net inside the pressure relief hole on the top of the shell.
At the bottom of the cavity is a magnet that absorbs the charging cockpit.
Carefully remove the sealant that fixes the battery. After removing the battery, you can see the internal circuit of the motherboard.
The size comparison of button battery and RMB coin.
There is a QR code authentication information on the battery.
The button battery supplier comes from MIC-POWER, model M0863S2, diameter 8mm, thickness 6.3mm, rated voltage 3.8V, rated capacity 0.133Wh.
