Review: Change the output of the audio on your Mac to external speakers with SoundSource

Change the output of the audio on your Mac to external speakers using SoundSource.

With Macs and MacBook Pros you get used to listening to audio from the built-in speakers, but what if you want better audio? For a quick, easy, and free solution try SoundSource. This app will allow you to use your external speakers without any hassle.

SoundSource enables you to switch your audio input and output sources with a single click. It's a free app and very quick to download. Once opened the app adds a menu-bar item, rather than an icon in the dock below. A small headphone icon will indicate when the app is working. The interface is very user-friendly and the drop-down menu is easy to understand. It will pick up your speakers straightaway and by clicking on the name of your speakers it will switch the output of the sound instantly. This app can also improve the quality of your headphones, but this is for Macbook Pro users only. It works very effectively without slowing your Mac down or taking up a lot of memory.

The small but effective SoundSource is easy to use and delivers on its promises. This app is great for music professionals or just everyday users who want better sound quality. It's free, quick, and very easy to use.
