Default Senheiser cx-300 has really low volume

Hi guys.
My cx-300's have suddenly lost a lot of volume.
They still sound great, just really low sound.
The tips are clean and I know it's not my clip+.
Any suggestions?

Welcome to ABi, New!

This issue has happened to me a couple of times, it was quite epic, but thankfully there is a fix (a rather odd one, LOL ). The first time it happened to me I e-mailed Sennheiser technical support, and they sent me a new pair for free no questions asked . Then, this same thing happened to that new pair, I contacted them again, and its a long story. Anyways...down to the original problem. I soon discovered that the back of the metal covering was clogged with you-know-what. My solution - take off the metal covering, and find an alternative covering to replace every so often if needed.

And it worked ! Turns out those pairs I originally had were not broken at all, so I was left with a couple of free Sennheiser earbuds (I decided not to tell them, LOL )!

Anyway, yes, its a very awkward, embarrassing and odd solution, but it worked for me. I LOLd to myself for a couple of days about the epic issue

Good luck, let me know how it turns out!

You can try dipping the phones nozzle-down into a shallow vat of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution (available in drug stores), and leaving them there for an hour or two. The peroxide dissolves the ear wax. Just make sure the phone drivers don't get in contact with the liquid.
