Removing Valve Index speakers is a simple process that requires minimal effort and tools. Whether you want to replace them with aftermarket speakers or just want to take them out for cleaning purposes, this guide will walk you through the entire process.

Gather The Necessary Tools

Before starting, make sure you have all the tools necessary for the job. You will need a small Phillips head screwdriver and a plastic pry tool or a flathead screwdriver with a plastic edge to avoid scratching the plastic surfaces.

Step-by-Step Guide to Removing Valve Index Speakers

Follow these simple steps to remove the speakers from your Valve Index headset.

Step 1: Remove The Faceplate

The first step to removing the speakers is removing the faceplate of the headset. To do this, simply slide your fingers under the bottom edge of the faceplate and gently pull it away from the headset’s body.

Step 2: Locate The Speaker Assembly

Once you have removed the faceplate, locate the speaker assembly on each side of your headset. They are located just above where your ears would be when wearing the headset.

Step 3: Remove The Speaker Cover

Next, use your plastic pry tool or flathead screwdriver with a plastic edge to remove the speaker cover. Start at one end of the cover and gently pry it up until it pops off. Repeat on the other side.

Step 4: Remove The Speaker Connector

After removing both speaker covers, locate the speaker connector on each side of your headset. It is a small black connector that attaches directly to each speaker assembly.

Use your Phillips head screwdriver to unscrew both connectors from their respective assemblies. Once they are unscrewed, gently pull them away from their connection points.

Step 5: Remove The Speakers

Finally, you can remove the speakers from their assemblies. Gently pull them away from the assembly, being careful not to damage any of the wires or connectors.


Removing Valve Index speakers is a straightforward process that requires minimal tools and effort. With this guide, you should be able to remove your speakers quickly and safely without damaging your headset.

Remember to take your time and be gentle when prying off the speaker covers and disconnecting the speaker connectors. If you encounter any problems or difficulties during this process, consult a professional for assistance.
