A fault called called clipping has occurred when the volume was too loud, which is an incurable distortion.
If you sacrifice some of the highest frequencies using the equalizer it can be made less harsh, but no cure.

Clipped audio is incurable. The overload has caused the tops and bottoms of the waveform to be destroyed. You can't get back from "destroyed".
