i don't know exactly what the parts look like in there, but i wonder if i could pull some rubber strings into the space between the pcb and the plate.
i need to open it up and evaluate the scene.
Keep in mind opening the case invalidates the warranty, so if you have any serious considerations of ever trying to return it, I'd advise against it.
That being said if you are sure you will be keeping it and are just looking for ways to mitigate the ring, you can open it up, but maybe I can give you some idea of what to expect.
The PCB and the metal plate are very close together. To make matters more difficult, you can only feed it in from the two ends because the metal plate bends over on the long sides and covers up the gap. The PCB is not smooth in between there either, it has all sorts of things to get snagged on, so feeding anything like rubber through the narrow space would be very difficult. It was so narrow that the only way I could get any foam close to the middle of the board was to use a narrow drinking straw that I spliced onto the tube on the can of foam. Even then I had to carefully feed and snake it in there.
