"Been looking for a good OSX equalizer. Found it."

November 09, 2013  |  By samofsummer

 |  Version: Boom 1.8

Pros

Simple to use, works nicely with built-in MacBook Pro and external speakers. Affordable. Presets are handy.

Cons

None, works as advertised.

Summary

This solved a problem I had with Pandora & Netflix audio - I couldn't customize the sound for vocals, movies etc. Always liked the built-in iTunes equalizer, but really needed one for everything else I do on my MacBook Pro. For $7.00 you can't go wrong. Don't know what that other guy was talking about regarding bluetooth, it works with my external wireless speakers.

"Stay clear of this one if you care about audio fidelity"

August 25, 2013  |  By DanielSBuus

 |  Version: Boom 1.7

Pros

It will allow you to boost the volume which might come in handy for instance if you're watching something with low volume on the internal speakers (on a player that doesn't itself support dynamic range compression like VLC or MPlayer does).

Cons

It will completely destroy your audio quality, even when you don't need boosting.

Summary

Tip: To properly uninstall this thing (you'll want to), open up the app, go to preferences, then the uninstall tab and uninstall from there.

Horrible, just horrible. Just installing it will audible wreck your audio, even when you're using earphones or AirPlay where boosting shouldn't even be enabled in the first place (not to mention that you don't even have to enable boosting for it to destroy your sound).

Run! Think of the children!

"Absolutely fantastic!!"

July 22, 2013  |  By stevemac7

 |  Version: Boom 1.7

Pros

BOOM is simply the best music enhancer app I have used. I have tried almost every other app - none as as stable, easy to use, and good as BOOM. At only $6.99 it's a steal.

Cons

I have no cons about Boom.

Summary

Boom is the best & the best value. Buy it - you'll be very happy.

"Exactly the slinky little app I needed..."

October 29, 2012  |  By Howard_V

 |  Version: Boom 1.5.1

Pros

- Effectively boosts the volume of yer MacBook Pro
- Gives you iTunes-like EQ control - but over your whole system
- EQ has some useful presets and allows you to create your own custom presets
- Not expensive
- Simple to use
- Looks gorgeous, minimalist, sexy

Cons

None to date

Summary

Overall, this little app is very simple to use, looks tasty and compensates effectively for tinny sound and weedy volume. A steal at the price. I paid special offer price of £2.99 during Oct 2012. Highly recommended.
