The engagement mechanism to re-attach each unit to the headband is simple. Almost no force is required, as I learned before breaking mine.
- Insert the connector at the end of the headband into the cylinder in the headphone casing
- Push it in until it hits the bottom of the cylinder in the casing
- rotate the headphone casing L/R by 50 or 60 or 90 degrees around the axis of the metal arm, until the connector engages further - you’ll feel the engagement
- it will click into place pretty much by itself, no need to grip hard and push
As soon as you reconnect both sides, can fire it up and listen normally. I’m listening with NC on as I write this. No warnings or notifications etc popped up.
You do not need to use a SIM slot pin tool during re-attachment, do not need to use this to push in and actuate the lever like you did to remove them. I wasted time trying this, so don’t break your set by pinning it to death.
You do not need to rotate about the other (gimballed) axis during re-attachment.
Ok, I removed the magnetic cups and detached both sides from the headband, and the release was fluid.
Re-attaching the headphone to the headband is proving to be not nearly as simple as removing them…
