Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The object you adjust the sound with is a potentiometer, which is a variable resistor. The contacts are circular, and increase in resistance as they are turned. They can get slightly oxidized, and dirty from dust and lint, over time, and if you can get some electrical contact cleaner sprayed on them, you have a chance of getting them to work, unless the oxidation is just too bad. When a side drops out completely, the contacts could be totally unconductive or worn, or obstructed by some particle.
So the alternative is trying to clean the potentiometers. Unfortunately, manufacturers don't make this accessible or easy, since the units are not engineered for easy servicing.
Oh, one more thing you can do is to try and find replacement potentiometers, and simply replace them. It's not usually pretty, but it can work. If Senheiser would sell you some, it might be cheaper if it looks plausible to you.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Unfortunately, no. The speaker gets demagnetized and there is nothing else you can do to fix that.
