    "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.

    "Big boost in volume! A steal for the price. Buy it!"

    June 09, 2012   |   By Jcrew2

    Version: Boom 1.4

    Pros

    Increased sound volume.

    Cons

    It would be great if it included more sound parameters to adjust, but for 7 bucks...I have no complaints.

    Summary

    My Macbook pro was useless when trying to play videos or listen to music with friends unless the room was very small and completely quiet. I would have to wear headphones to enjoy a movie. With Boom I got an extra volume control in addition to the main computer volume and the volume of the program in use. With the Boom volume set less than halfway up I showed a youtube video to my coworkers and it was more than loud enough. Plus it's cheap. It's all I needed it to do. I'll plug in speakers when I want great sound with bass and more, but for on the go use, it's perfect.

    Updated on Jun 9, 2012

    My bad...I listed more parameters needed as a con in my original review....It has a nice equalizer feature too that I hadn't realized yet. Man this is awesome. The only con now is that it doesn't come with two twelve inch Subwoofers and a trunk!
