    "Filled with other junk programs"

    January 24, 2014   |   By rajiv8s

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    The program works. Could be handy.

    Cons

    Filled with other junk programs although I made sure it does not install things I do want. Now I keep getting adverts on my screenn. I also had to uninstall games advertisements..mobo something.. just right after the thing installed.

    Also it is not a free software. It is a 30 days trial.

    It could be that it is the CNET package which installed those programs and not the original program.

    "Stay well away from this application! VIRUS VIRUS VIRUS"

    December 15, 2013   |   By brettskiesi

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    Absolutely NONE!

    Cons

    After blowing the lid off all of my all of my virus software apps during the install.. it proceeded to install at least 2 other stealth apps (that I could see). After the install it was the most non intuitive interface - God knows how you use it to enhance audio .. no add file / drag and drop... nothing.
    I want the last 40 minutes of my life back... and God knows what damage these saboteurs have done to my machine in the process.

    Summary

    Shame on cnet for including it in their reviews... I wonder what sort of due diligence they actually do.

    "Works quite well"

    July 25, 2013   |   By Samlv

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    Very solid sound enhancement.

    Cons

    No manual EQ.

    Summary

    Very solid; works well. And in this time of generally poor software, this is refreshing.

    "Great for audio enhancement!"

    June 26, 2013   |   By Coolcarfan

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    My PC has always had decent audio quality alone, but I wanted to become an audiophile for a bit and boost it. This program is absoloutely amazing! I have some sub-100 dollar Skullcandy headphones with subwoofers in them, and this makes everything sound clear and solid. I notice no lag or memory usage than normal when playing music or games. This program has made my audio experience much better!

    Cons

    I've yet to find any.

    Summary

    A great, solid, audio enhancer that is simple to figure out and easy to use! Highly recommend!

    "Good program"

    July 19, 2012   |   By abador08

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    Pumps out great sound quality!

    Cons

    It seems to take up a lot of memory and my system is unstable while it is open.

    Summary

    I have not had any trouble with no sound while playing games as some have mentioned.

    "Useless program"

    May 27, 2012   |   By RMer1987

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    None since I cant do anything with it

    Cons

    No audio in games or movies

    MP3 files wont play in Windows Media Player while breakaway is running

    Summary

    I downloaded Breakaway in hopes of improving the sound quality of my viewsonic monitors built in speakers but boy was I let down. While breakaway is running, I get no sound in any of my games no matter which settings I use. Same thing with movies to. Also, Windows media player always throws up a "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file" when attemping to play an MP3. Of course this all goes away when I close Breakaway so my final verdict. A useless flawed program.

    "Best of the Top Three - Breakaway, DFX and Sound Pimp."

    May 09, 2012   |   By jblue0056

    Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

    Pros

    It is easy to use and does not have too many sound adjustments. It takes older music and even new music and makes it sound much better. I was amazed on how it made Crosby,Stills,Nash and Young's, Southern Cross song, sound much clearer, in bringing out the background vocals and instruments.

    Cons

    I have not found any.

    Summary

    I found DFX had too much treble and too many sound adjustments, as well - it does not enhance the music. SRS's version, also over boosted the treble and Audio Sandbox did not run on my year & 1/2 old computer. Sound Pimp was higher priced and did not meet my needs as it worked with Winamp.
