Anyone know how to remove these plastic covers from the old style Hifiman headband?

Sorry if this has been answered before. This is the part I’m looking to remove:

I think I want to give these a paint job, and I want to do it right.

probably use a hair dryer or heat gun on a lower setting and let everything expand and then use a pin or lance to work it free once loosened up from the heat?

From the looks of it, it could be a case of removing the center plate (the part saying “Drop”) and there being a screw or two under there.

A guitar pick may work, or a proper spudger from one of the many tool supliers.
