he wasn't talking about the headphones he was talking about the ear piece on the handset itself. yes heat would melted. Is there anyway you could expose only the ear piece area to some heat, and turn it face down over something so that the wax will fall out? Also, not too much heat, cause that could obviously cause damage.

will it not just cake off? what i mean is, if the wax has cooled, then it formed a mold, just take an exacto knife, and pull the wax off. unless i suppose it got "inside" of the actual little openings. if thats the case, you may be out of luck sans opening the case. and that would void warranty. keep us updated! should we even ask what you all were doing with hot wax and an iphone to beging with!?!?!?!? LOL Kinky!

So it is not on top of the speaker? It is all the way inside the housing actually under the speaker? The cold air will make it brittle so that you can break it off better.
If that does not work, you have you choices as I see it:
1) Go to Apple store and let them repair it. They will charge you for that though.
2) Invest in a BT headset. That will cost you as well.

1. Insert wick.
2. Make iCandle.
Sorry for the smartass response, but I have never heard of this issue before!
Whatever you do, be very careful with heat. Could cause more damage than you want.
An non-smartass response would maybe use a pin very carefully to pick at it. I'll be very interested to see how this is resolved.
