"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!

 |  Version: Breakaway Audio Enhancer 1.30.02

Pumps out great sound quality!

"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.
